The man hailed the 'world's most popular sperm donor' has dismissed fears that his children might unknowingly meet and form incestuous relationships. Kyle Gordy, 27, of Los Angeles, California , has fathered 18 children across the US over the last four years - and has five more on the way. The donor admitted there has been concern that his children might unwittingly 'bump into' their half-siblings and form potentially problematic relationships. But he explained he has tried to preempt any issues by offering to introduce the parents of his children online. He explained he is not concerned that his children might unknowingly form incestuous relationships. Kyle, whose Facebook page pictured promoting his services appears to have been removed, previously told how he receives some requests every month.
World's oldest SPERM is 17-million-year-old seed from ancient shrimp
Low sperm count - Diagnosis and treatment - Mayo Clinic
By Sarah Griffiths. Scientists have discovered 'enormous' fossilised sperm dating back 17 million years. Belonging to a tiny shrimp, the sperm, when uncoiled, was longer than the crustacean's entire body. The preserved semen were discovered at the Riversleigh World Heritage Fossil Site in Queensland, Australia, and are the oldest ever found.
When you see a doctor because you're having trouble getting your partner pregnant, he or she will try to determine the underlying cause. Even if your doctor thinks low sperm count is the problem, it is recommended that your partner be evaluated to rule out potential contributing factors and determine if assisted reproductive techniques may be required. This includes examination of your genitals and asking questions about any inherited conditions, chronic health problems, illnesses, injuries or surgeries that could affect fertility. Your doctor might also ask about your sexual habits and your sexual development. A low sperm count is diagnosed as part of a semen analysis test.
In an age when a small quantity of sperm can lead to pregnancy through in vitro fertilization or intracytoplasmic sperm injection, selecting healthy sperm is important. Terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase-mediated deoxyuridine triphosphate nick end labeling TUNEL and the alkaline comet test are SDF tests that directly measure DNA damage and have shown closer correlations with assisted reproduction results than indirect tools such as the sperm chromatin structure assay or the sperm chromatic dispersion test. It is difficult; however, to endorse a single test as the best test overall; instead, it is best to select a testing method based on each patient's clinical condition and goals. In a couple struggling with infertility, if the male partner has a high level of SDF, he should aim to decrease SDF through lifestyle modifications, antioxidant treatment, and ensuring an appropriate duration of abstinence, and physicians need to treat the underlying diseases of such patients.
