    Can a 15-Minute Procedure Stop Your Snoring?


    For every husband or wife who has been driven from the bedroom as a result of his or her spouse's snoring, there may be hope. A new treatment designed to reduce snoring seems to be effective in quieting the nighttime ruckus in a majority of patients.

    The treatment, called a palatal implant, is an outpatient surgical procedure that works by stiffening the tissue in the back of the throat that is often the cause of snoring. This treatment may also be effective in treating other sleep disorders.

    Egg Beaters: Checking Your Biological Clock


    Despite the long lifespan American women now enjoy, their reproductive lifespan remains unchanged. In most women, a gradual decline in fertility begins in the late 20s and then drops off more sharply around age 35 and then again around 40. Yet fertility in this age group still varies from woman to woman.

Yet fertility in this age group still varies from woman to woman.


    That's one reason why the idea of a test assessing a woman's ovarian reserve-which depends upon the number and quality of the eggs in the ovaries and how the ovaries respond to certain hormones-is appealing for women seeking fertility treatment, and maybe even for those women who just ...
