twoplus fertility Releases New Technology to Help Couples Trying to Conceive

NEW YORK, USA, August 3, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — twoplus fertility, a fertility technology company, is excited to announce the release of the twoplus sperm guide, a new solution for couples who are trying to conceive naturally.

A common misconception about conception is that only a single sperm is needed for fertilization to occur. In the average ejaculate, there are an average of about 100 million sperm. More than 2 million need to enter the cervix so that hundreds can reach the egg for fertilization to occur. Hundreds are required to help prepare the way by breaking down the two outer protective layers of the egg. Many sperm will not survive the acidic environment in the vagina. Combine that with the decreasing average sperm count in men, and having a sufficient number of sperm reach the egg is more challenging than ever.

The twoplus sperm guide is a small, soft, comfortable device used during sex to help sperm get to the right place within the vaginal tract. It protects sperm from harmful acidic vaginal fluid and forms a seal to block any loss of sperm. The guide directs sperm toward the deeper end of the vaginal tract and increases the potential for natural conception. The unique technology is the first of its kind to assist couples with natural conception in the comfort of their home. Importantly, the device also brings back intimacy to conception.

The sperm guide is shipped quickly in discreet packaging and requires no appointments or procedures for use. It is designed to be used in the privacy of the bedroom and has been featured on Forbes, Combinator, TechCrunch, fertility help hub, pregnantish and fermata.

The device was developed after one of the co-founders of twoplus and his wife struggled to conceive for several years. They spoke with other couples who were also experiencing fertility challenges.

“We found a huge gap in the fertility landscape as we were finding a solution for ourselves that is easy to use and convenient,” said twoplus fertility co-founder Dr. Benjamin Tee. “Most of the products are focused on fertility tracking and insurance plans or incremental product improvements. None have focused on providing new, ground-breaking solutions to improve sperm transport to the egg.”

Dr. Tee is a scientist with a Ph.D. from Stanford University and a Stanford Biodesign Fellow. He and his wife welcomed their first baby using the sperm guide technology. “We want to help 1 million couples conceive over the next 10 years,” he said.

twoplus has secured seed funding from top investors, including Y-Combinator and Golden Gate Ventures. They have also formed partnerships with world-class clinicians and scientists from Stanford University and the University of California Berkeley.

As reported by the Baker Act Reporting Center, an astounding 337,882 involuntary psychiatric examinations were initiated on children across the state.

Designed for individuals authorized to initiate an involuntary hold, the virtual course is delivered by an attorney and covers basic rights impacted by law.

The lack of reporting on the actual number of people being taken into custody for involuntary psychiatric examinations across the country is unconscionable and must be addressed.”

— Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, August 3, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Commonly known as the Baker Act, Florida’s mental health law, allows for individuals of all ages to be taken into custody for an involuntary psychiatric examination. However, this law is often misunderstood and misused. With changes made during the 2021 legislative session on the procedure for Baker Acting a child, it is more important than ever to ensure this procedure is understood.

According to a new study by researchers at the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs, only 25 states in the country track involuntary holds with enough data to be analyzed and of those 25, “annual detentions varied from a low of 29 per 100,000 people in Connecticut in 2015 to a high of 966 in Florida in 2018.” Florida initiated more than 210,000 Baker Acts during 2018/2019 across the state with over 37,000 involving children. [1,2]

While Florida recently made changes to the involuntary examination process for children, now requiring reasonable attempts to notify parents, headlines such as “6-year-old Florida girl “traumatized” after being involuntarily sent to mental health facility” and “Florida’s flawed Baker Act rips thousands of kids from school” have been all too frequent spurring the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) to begin offering continuing education on the law. After first receiving approval to host continuing education through the Florida Bar on the Baker Act for attorneys, the move to become a provider through the Florida Board of Clinical Social Work, Marriage and Family Therapy and Mental Health Counseling was a logical next step. [3,4,5]

The next complimentary virtual course is being hosted by CCHR on Saturday, August 14th, and will be delivered by attorney Carmen Miller, a former assistant public defender in the Thirteenth Circuit in Tampa, with an extensive background in dealing with Baker Acts. Those in attendance will learn the context and intentions of the mental health law, basic human rights impacted by the Baker Act, changes to the Baker Act process for children and the unintended consequences of involuntary psychiatric examinations. To learn more or to reserve a spot, please call 727-442-8820 or send an email to execdir@cchrflorida.org.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969. For more information visit www.cchrflorida.org

Use of Medical Cannabis Among Seniors Increases & Stigma Decreases

Article regarding Cannabis use with seniors

Cannabis use among seniors

Senior citizens & older adults are among the fastest-growing cannabis consumers. Medicinal benefits are some of the reasons this group is growing as consumers.

98682, VANCOUVER, CANADA, August 3, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Senior citizens and older adults are among the fastest-growing groups of medical cannabis consumers. Are you surprised? If one has experienced the medicinal benefits of marijuana, then they're probably not! This plant can be used to treat a variety of ailments, from helping people to get to sleep at night to easing chronic pain that is not even responsive to opioids, etc.

Studies have shown that the older adult population comprises the fast-growing group of new cannabis users. In fact, many conclude about a third of all users in Canada are senior citizens. Not to mention, the numbers reveal that about a quarter of all older adults who use cannabis are new users. Quarter after quarter since the historic legislation of October 2018, more seniors and older adults are discovering the amazing world of cannabis. Another significant finding was that people over the age of 65 were less likely to become daily users in comparison to all the age groups under 65.

CBD Products Are Also Popular Among Older Adults in Canada
The majority of cannabis use among older adults involves using flower or other products that contain the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). It is important to note that a lot of people in their older years enjoy the mellow body effects that are caused by cannabidiol (CBD). If you want to learn more about cannabidiol or CBD oil and its plethora of benefits, you can do so at our previous blog post here.

Medical Marijuana Use Opens Up the Discussion for Seniors
Many older adults are curious about marijuana use is because of medical benefits. Because medical marijuana has been legal in Canada for 20 years or more, this provides older people an environment where they can open up and ask more questions about cannabis. It provides comfort when they are able to weigh the risks vs benefits with a healthcare provider, and in the case of medical cannabis, the list of potential side effects are very few, which is in stark contrast to pharmaceutical options that are used to treat the same ailments, such as chronic pain, insomnia, neuropathy, etc.

Considerations For Older Adults and Cannabis Use
Marijuana is a natural plant, and it is true that no one has ever died from a cannabis overdose. However, that is not to say that there are not certain considerations that people, especially in the elderly population, take in about marijuana use.

Cardiac considerations. Cannabis can increase heart rate and, in some people, can also increase their blood pressure. If you have any existing cardiac issues, talk to your medical provider. It is not uncommon for people over the age of 65 to have multiple medications they are prescribed and take on a daily basis. If you are taking medications (especially blood thinners or anti-seizure medication), you might want to discuss with your healthcare provider whether medical marijuana could have any negative side effects or interactions. It’s important to openly discuss your cannabis usage with your doctors, especially if you have surgery. If you are a user of cannabis, they may need to make adjustments with your levels of anesthesia or take other important precautions.and the highly concentrated forms, such as extracts or high-dosage edibles. CBD is a safe bet and is not known to increase heart rate.

Cognitive considerations. Cannabis products that contain the psychoactive cannabinoid, THC, can have an impact on your thinking. This can be a concern for older adults who are at risk for dementia or confusion. In order to avoid profound psychological effects, it’s better for seniors to stick with products that have lower levels of THC. CBD products in Canada are non-intoxicating and therefore may be preferred by seniors who want to experience the medicinal effects. Curiously, there is also research that suggests patients who use cannabis can improve their cognitive functioning, in part due to the benefits of pain control and improvement in sleep patterns. Further studies need to be conducted in order to confirm these findings.
In Summary

The use of cannabis among the elderly is definitely growing. Social acceptance and the reduction of social stigma are largely part of this trend, but it’s encouraging. Medical marijuana has been documented as an effective agent for patients who suffer from a myriad of health conditions, in particular chronic pain and insomnia.

While cannabis is a natural alternative with very few side effects and very little risk, if you are taking several medications or have a cognitive impairment, you should educate yourself about the benefits and risks. Talk to your healthcare provider or start out with very small doses of THC. Also, experiment with trying CBD or CBD oil alone and experience the other effects of cannabis.
