       be reversible in the event the couple wants to have children. It should also not interfere with a

113.   Describe the sterilization procedures for men and women.


       Men: The procedure for men is vasectomy. In this procedure, each vas deferens, the tubes that
       connect the testes to the urethra, is cut and closed off so that sperm can no longer be ejaculated.
       This is typically done under local anesthetic in a doctor’s office.

       Women: Sterilization is accomplished by tubal ligation, in which the fallopian tubes are cut and
       tied back so that ova cannot pass down the tubes and sperm can never reach them. This
       procedure is now typically done via laparoscopy under general or local anesthetic. A new method
       of nonsurgical female sterilization involves insertion of the Essure coil into the fallopian tubes by
       a physician. After three months, the physician checks to see that adequate scar tissue has formed
       to block the fallopian tubes.

114.   If human cloning were to occur, what procedures would be involved in the process?

       Answer:          The steps would include the following:
       1)     doctors would surgically retrieve an egg from the female donor;
       2)     the nucleus of the egg would be removed;
       3)     a cell is then taken from a cloning subject;
       4)     through an electrical jolt, the cloning subject’s cell is fused with the enucleated egg;
       5)     the clonal embryo is then implanted in the womb of the surrogate mother; and
       6)     after nine months, a genetically matched reproduction of the cloning subject is born.

       Pages:          356-357

115.   List the early signs of pregnancy.

       Answer:         Most notably, a missed menstrual period the month after unprotected sexual
       intercourse can signal the possibility that the endometrium is not being ejected because it harbors
       an embryo. The woman may also experience the nausea of morning sickness and changes in the
       Page:            350

116.   Describe the stages of labor and delivery.


       1)       Effacement and dilation of the cervix: Typically the longest stage, during which
                contractions begin and gradually become more intense as the cervix dilates. This first
                stage ends at transition, when the cervix dilates fully and the baby moves into the birth
       2)       Delivery of fetus: The baby is pushed out through the vaginal opening and delivered.
                This stage ends when delivery is complete.
       3)       Delivery of placenta: Uterine contractions continue until the placenta has been expelled.
                Continuing mild contractions help to stop bleeding and help the uterus begin to return to
                normal size.

       Pages:           352-353

117.   Describe advantages and disadvantages of “test tube” methods of fertilization.

       Answer:           One advantage is the fact that fertilization and implantation are more controllable
       in a “test tube” situation than they are in a woman’s body. Also, this type of assisted pregnancy
       is the only option for women whose fallopian tubes are totally blocked. On the other hand,
       fertility services make the process of getting pregnant much more involved and expensive, and
       there is no guarantee of success. An unusually large percentage of assisted pregnancies result in
       more than one conception.
