The purpose of this relatively simple procedure is to achieve fertilisation and pregnancy. IUI can also be called artificial insemination (AI) or donor insemination (DI) if donor sperm is used. In-vitro fertilisation (IVF) A laboratory procedure in which sperm are placed with an unfertilized egg in a Petri dish to achieve fertilization.

If the egg is fertilised, the embryo is then transferred into the uterus a few days later to begin a pregnancy, or the embryo is cryopreserved (frozen) for future use. Fertility The ability of a person to use their genetic materials to create a pregnancy. If a person has some medical issues with their fertility and needs the assistance of medical interventions, we refer to this as infertility. For LGBTIQA+ people, medical interventions may also be used to achieve a pregnancy, despite the individual being otherwise “fertile”. Egg The reproductive cells that are held in ovaries. When an egg is combined with sperm, this can result in a fertilised embryo, which can grow into a pregnancy if this is within a uterus.

When sperm or semen is combined with an egg, this can result in a fertilised embryo, which can grow into a pregnancy if this is within a uterus. In Assisted Reproductive Technology, sperm can be collected from a semen sample produced by ejaculation or medical collection. Embryo An embryo results if an egg is fertilised and continues to grow, from the early stages of fertilization to the beginning of the third month of pregnancy (in humans).

Suicide Prevention
Thoughts of suicide and poor mental health outcomes are things that affect the LGBTIQ community more than the general population. Why is this? What do we need to change in order to shift this reality?

Our guest Amelia, an LGBTI+ Suicide Prevention Training Officer at Thorne Harbour Health, comes on the show to discuss these issues. She brings light to the things that rarely gets a media platform to do so. She also shares with us some of the work she is doing in affirmative practice training for service providers.

Drug Harm Reduction – Pill Testing https://joy.org.au/wellwellwell/2019/02/pill-testing/ Thu, 21 Feb 2019 02:18:32 +0000 http://joy.org.au/wellwellwell/?p=2598 Harm reduction around the use of recreational drugs has always been a controversial topic to discuss. This week on Well Well Well we look at the facts, the health benefits and the reduced harms associated with drug harm reduction, in particular, pill testing. Dr. Matthew Dunn, a drug and alcohol researcher who focuses largely on substance use and harm joins us today to share his valuable insight. We explore policies, attitudes, misconceptions and behaviour of substance use in Australia. We also look at the evidence supporting the benefits of pill testing and the barriers we face moving forward. Kate Pern who leads a joint project between Thorne Harbour and STAR Health called the PARTI (peer-advocacy response training initiative) Project then joins us to chat about working directly with venues. The PARTI Project educates party-goers and their peers on the substances they may be using and how to reduce harms so they can make informed decisions about their partying behaviour. The PARTI Project also provides free training for venue staff as well as security guards on how to best keep people safe in their venues - focusing on how to recognise and respond to different drug-related harms or sexual assault. We also discuss some practical tips around partying safe and poly drug-use to take away from this podcast.

For the recent Legacy Series on Well, Well, Well, Cal Hawk talked to a handful of living legends about the community response to HIV and AIDS in Australia. Sadly, the community lost one of those legends with the passing of Jim Hyde. While a portion of Jim's interview was included in the legacy series, additional content never went to air — until now. This Jim Hyde tribute episode features clips with Jim about coming to Melbourne in the height of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, community leadership, and coming out. The episode also includes stories and memories from other HIV/AIDS and LGBTI community health advocates, including: David Menadue, Jamie Gardiner, Bruce Parnell and Janet Jukes.
