After my wife and I struggled with infertility for over a decade, I decided to start a compassionate, patient-centered IVF practice. I founded Fertility CARE: The IVF Center in 2003, an established IVF practice in Central Florida with success rates well above the national average.
In my new book, The Fertility Doctor's Guide to Overcoming Infertility: Discovering Your Reproductive Potential and Maximizing Your Odds of Having a Baby, I tell patients what they need to know—and avoid—in their quest for parenthood.
I’m called up by the media to give actionable advice on medical breakthroughs on the subject of infertility and assisting couples in their quest to become parents. Ask me Anything!

I'm election law specialist (and UC Irvine law professor ) Rick Hasen ( electionlawblog.org and tweeting @rickhasen). There are many concerns facing us during the 2020 elections including voter suppression, election administrator incompetence (as we've already seen in Iowa), foreign and domestic dirty tricks, and increasingly incendiary rhetoric about stolen elections. I've recently published a book on the subject with Yale University Press called Election Meltdown.
An hour or so ago a post was deleted. It was a cartoon of someone dragging someone else out of a room. It was captioned "my NCOIC making me go to the Soldier of the Month Board".
It reminded me of a story you might, or might not, find funny.
In 1989 I was sent to my first duty station, HHC 1st Battalion, 1st Infantry at West Point, NY.
I was a PV2.
While I was stationed there I met a REALLY HOT Private First Class. She was so fucking hot, she's currently sitting on the couch to my left. I put a ring on that shit and we've been married all these years later. Go us, she even read this post and we had a good laugh.
Anyway she was a PFC and, again, I was an PV2. When we met there was a bit of a humorous rivalry about rank between us. She was the high ranking PFC and I the lowly PV2. It was a good natured back and forth.
You see, I had an issue with push ups and failed a few APFTs but a dedicated 1SG beat me into submission and I eventually passed the APFT, allowing me to be prom... keep reading on reddit ➡
So I need some help with a diagnosis for my mom (63 years old). She is basically immobile at this point, but it has been a slow buildup over the last 3 years. Also it’s worth mentioning that she has always been about 100 pounds overweight (currently at around 250) even though she eats very little (I know that doesn’t make sense but I swear it’s true. She takes meds for hashimotos but that still doesn't explain it).
About 3 years ago she woke up in the middle of the night with a very intense pain in her right arm from the hand up to the shoulder. She said it felt like it was asleep but also on fire and being stabbed. Unbearable pain. She could not sit or lay for three days straight because of it. Went to the doctor who gave her steroids to help. That seemed to help for awhile, but then she had severe side effects from the medication and decided to slowly taper it off. Once off the steroids, her conditioned worsened into full body joint pain (severe arthritis) and swelling. Her legs ar... keep reading on reddit ➡
I keep seeing people attacking the US government for failing to run tests and their "inept" response to this crisis. Let me tell you exactly what I think has happened here because its literally exactly what I would have done in the same situation as President or head of the CDC. The government does not care about you as an individual. It cares about "population health".
Now, remember before you get all mad at me, this is a thought exercise on what a government would do to save and protect and keep healthy as many citizens as possible while sacrificing as few as possible. I'm not here to debate the ethics of what I'm about to say. I'm just stating it is what is probably happening. So please don't politicize it or get all SJW on me.
As soon as we realized COVID-19 was both highly infectious and very lethal compared to flu, the first thing I would have done was work to prevent it from getting here. Then, upon realizing that Chinese new year has already happened, and countless peopl... keep reading on reddit ➡
Kenny Atkinson said he “wouldn’t go there” when asked if there’s a concern Irving will miss the rest of the season. Right now, the plan is that he will see a specialist and go from there. Atkinson said the shoulder has been continuously bothering Irving.
Right now it's neither fun nor rewarding to run strikes. If we're not getting Strike specific loot or scoring back any time soon then at least bring back some of the more popular D1 modifiers. Who thought it was a good idea to reduce burns to puny singes? Who decided we get heavyweight but not small arms or specialist? More questionable decision making that I can't find a lot of reasoning behind.
Hi Reddit! I’m Tish Ellis. I’ve been a psychotherapist for 10 years. I have an online video therapy practice where I specialize in helping high conflict coparents, especially ones that experience parental alienation. I use an approach of compassion and light humor when working with my clients. I combine conflict resolution, stress management techniques, and person-centered therapy to help my clients create the coparenting relationship they desire.
When I’m not contemplating how to be a coparenting and relationship recovery jedi, I can usually be found doing a things I love most like watching my kid play baseball (P.S. he's a hell of a pitcher), laughing till I cry watching funny youtube videos, or binge-watching fantasy shows like Game of Thrones (yes I HATED the last season), or running away from my rottweiler's silent but deadly farts. 🤢🤮

Hey everyone, I'm running into a network issue right now and I need some extra advice.
- I pay for 200 down / 10 up
- My PC (built 2017, MSI mobo, i5 6600k, 32gb RAM) plugged directly into the ISP modem gets around 95 down / 10 up (yes it has the latest drivers)
- My 2012 Laptop (i7 3610QM, 8gb RAM) plugged directly into the ISP modem gets 236 down / 10 up
- My job requires me to upload constant 3500kb/sec on the PC
- The PC connection drops daily for around 30 minutes, destroying my work
- One program on the PC shows uploading around 3682 kb/sec, while another at the same time shows 6000-11000 kb/sec
- The ISP has been out to my office 6 times to work on this issue that has been happening for 6 months now.
How do I further diagnose this? Are there programs out there that allow me to accurately view upload / download speeds in real time? Where do I even start with this issue? Please let me know if you have any further questions and thanks in advance for the help... keep reading on reddit ➡
So I work for a MSP and thought it might be fun to see what others have come across when it comes to people who use the title "IT specialist" in their title with zero justification. In my line of work I deal with alot of customers who have their own "IT" staff on their payroll who we have to interface with. I have had two whoppers that I would like to start with.
A client of ours had an individual on payroll that somehow slid into the position of in house IT. Individual X calls up one day and is looking for help because they are getting kicked out to the login screen on their workstation every 2-3 minutes and been fighting with it all morning. A couple days prior we had given them the firewall credentials per the request of their primary controller contact so that they could open ports for a new application they were testing. After a quick investigation into their firewall I found a new firewall rule that allowed access from any public IP inbound on port 3389 and it was NATd straigh... keep reading on reddit ➡
I've been waiting for a vascular operation for about 8 months and yesterday I finally had it. It was touch and go though as a bed in ITU wasn't available until literally the last minute. It was an 8 hour operation to repair my ceoliac artery with part of my aortic artery so serios stuff which was carried out by a vascular professor who is only one of 2 people in the UK who is able to carry out this type of surgery. At the moment it's nearly 5am and I can't sleep due to the pain despite everything I'm on. Hence why I'm on reddit posting about it.
I am so grateful to my amazing family who have supported me and paid for some of the appointments and procedures leading up to this point and especially my wife who has pushed so hard for the operation. She is the most amazing, wonderful, stubborn and beautiful woman inside and out.
We are so lucky to have the NHS who do the most incredible work despite limited and stretched resources.
TLDR: Wife and family awesome. NHS awesome. Finally goin... keep reading on reddit ➡
Not sure if this is wide public knowledge but for those who make loadouts and multiple ones at that This here will be a life saver.
So I recently stated in the comments of one of my posts how I work in marketing and to DM me for advice but I got a decent amount of DM's so I figured I would make this more public so the advice can be shared with anyone!
I am a Social Media Manager and Marketing Specialist who has been working for agencies and in the industry for over six years. I just started my own podcast, but have been doing campaigns for various media for years and would love to give my advice to anyone who might need it.
Tracer has remained not only the same, but has recieved a minor nerf overall (400 hp to 350 hp pulse bomb) but a pretty big buff to her range. Yet even now she can even be considered a throw pick in high elos. From going to being considered the most vital DPS, to a borderline throw hero, without any signifant changes to her. She has a netf 50 dmg nerf on her pulse bomb but a nice buff to her range, yet she's still awful relative to other DPS.
What happened that made her feel so bad. Is it just the AOE heals and Hanzo, or is there more to it. Because she feels like a joke compared to hanzo, doomfist does a better job eliminating supports.
Perhaps it's nostalgia, but a stage where Tracer is the strongest DPS in the game would be a heaven compared to getting one shotted on by hanzo and widow, or chain freezed by mei. I don't even mind Tracer compared to what we have now. At least Tracer had to get up close and couldn't instantly delete you, nor cc'd you to death.
I'm worn down from the constant pain, and I have to keep myself shut up in various ways so that when it gets too bad, my screaming and crying doesn't annoy or anger them. They spend all their time and money on being around their church, which would be nice and their church itself is lovely, but I can't get myself to places on my own rn and I'm shit out of cash for the most part. It's sick to wonder how many of my symptoms are from things they could have done something about when I was younger.
The more sick I get, the more I'm elder abusing or purposefully being any of the various terms they've said to me before. It's a fun cycle.
I miss being able to go outside, I miss walking, I miss being able to look at the moon without stabbing pains, I miss how happy I was getting even when was still in pain but I had a plan and knew I was getting out sometime soon. I miss being myself.
I don't know why I got all these symptoms, doctors don't know, and I react so badly to most of the meds. I... keep reading on reddit ➡
My beautiful gem knights need all the help they can get climbing this ladder ;_;
GOATS, Double Shield and everything else in between basically kneecapped specialists.
But with hero pools? Suddenly more viable.
Outlaws went from an utter joke to beasts the Second they could get Muma off of Rein and onto Winston. Get a Rein One trick and suddenly a lot of their problems dont look so bad.
Hell maybe Pine could have a shot again.
So many possibilities now thanks to Hero Pools.
Price check please. Thanks for help.
Russell commented on Survivor specialists, in the live comments. "BRob goes this week"
I know people say he's not spoiled but his track record is better than all from the start and he's 3/4 for pre-merge boots and had Ethan going before anyone. I think Russell's ego wouldn't allow him to be wrong on this one
there is still hope

I wanted to pass a quick note to this sub from a family conference call that took place last night. My spouse is a critical care trained cardiologist and has 6 other doctors across a variety of specialties in her family. We also looped in a friend that trained with my wife and now works in infectious disease at the NIH. Some of the family members are older or in immunocompromised positions so we wanted to get everyone on the same page.
The most blunt advice from the group was NOT to go to the ED for testing of mild, flu-like symptoms. These include minor aches, fever under 103, cold chills, headaches, coughing. All expectations are that testing will be more widespread in the coming days. At this time the ED should be considered a place of infection.
On the opposite side ABSOLUTELY GO if you're having the above combined with any difficulty breathing. You may have a severe case that requires intervention.
If possible, consider calling ahead and giving them a heads up to... keep reading on reddit ➡
I just got hired at an agency as a PPC Specialist. It’s a pretty good gig considering I’m finishing up my final year in University and don’t have much experience.
What are some tips you can give me to do well? My first portion of the job will be focused more on optimization in order to get a handle on things and then I’ll go on to creating ads from scratch.
Any tips or information is greatly appreciated!
Hi all. Instant disclaimer: I'm not the eye specialist.
I've been seeing a lot of posts about people getting PSVR for their kids, or letting their 6 year olds play Astrobot or whatever else, despite Sony slapping a minimum age of 12 on the hardware. I was intrigued by this, so spoke to a friend of mine who's a professional optometrist and eye consultant, who had her own thoughts on the matter but went off to do some research and ask her colleagues for their thoughts.
She couldn't find anything reliable in terms of official studies on long term health issues in terms of using VR headsets, but both her and her colleagues agreed that using these headsets before a person has fully entered puberty (and which point eyes can become less susceptible to major damage from external factors) is not a safe thing to do, and carries a risk of moderate eye strain and potential damage. Nobody's going to go blind by playing Beat Sabre for an hour, but there have been a lot of kids getting bad headac... keep reading on reddit ➡
