MINI-IVF Low stimulation IVF protocols are nothing new. Clomid based medication protocols have been around for decades. With the advent of injectable medications many years ago, Clomid based cycles were largely abandoned. This is due to the overall poorer success rates with low stimulation type protocols - especially Clomid based protocols. There is unfortunately a strong misconception that so
Problems associated with various ticks have been widely reported throughout much of the country including the areasurrounding Tomahawk Scout Reservation in Wisconsin. With proper planning and education, tick problems can beminimized. To assist troops with educating campers, the staff at Tomahawk has prepared the following plan:All campers should wear a good quality insect repellant when they are
