Sperm robots are here!
But not for what you think...
A German company has developed a sperm-driven microrobot intended to deliver medicine to cancerous tumors, including in the cervix.
The sperm-bot is made of sperm from a bull and a 3D-printed microstructure coated in an iron-based covering. The iron allows the robot to be magnetically steered through the human body towards a tumor.
When it reaches a tumor, the sperm is released to make its way into the cancer cell where it drops its drug shipment.
Who can come up with the best joke?!?
Technology is useful and obviously can improve the quality of our lives.
But the good ol' basics should not be thrown away in our search for health solutions. Especially when trying to get pregnant in your late 30s and older, have had failed IVF cycles, and/or recurrent miscarriages.
Modern technology like IVF and IUI can do part 1 i.e. get pregnant, but they might not be enough to get to part 2 and 3 if you have poor egg and/or sperm quality.
And that's where my online GPS (Get Pregnant & Stay pregnant) Fertility Program comes in. It's all about teaching you what you need to know to get pregnant, stay pregnant, and have a healthy baby. So let's go back to the basics here: zenfertility.com/gps
