The positivity or negativity of the test is determined by the presence or absence of spermatozoa in the urine of the toad previously injected with the urine of a woman suspected to be pregnant. The spermatozoa of the adult toad are in contact with the Sertoli cells and are grouped together, parallel to each other, in such a way that they appear like bundles. Occasionally the spermatozoa are free and detached from the wall of the tubes and can be seen as a loose skein. The relation between the pituitary and the testis of Bufo arenarum Hensel has been studied by Houssay and Lascano Gonzalez 2. These authors found evidence that in the toad the pituitary exerts a constant influence upon the spermatogenetic activity of the testis, and that removal of the pituitary produces testicular atrophy.
The law was on her side; rape is among the few instances in which females in Argentina may legally have an abortion. But authorities in her northern province stalled for weeks, forcing the girl to have a C-section on Wednesday, delivering a baby who experts say is unlikely to survive. The case has reignited a fierce debate over reproductive rights in Argentina, which last year came close to legalizing abortion for pregnancies up to 14 weeks. Coming weeks after a similar case in another northern province, in which a year-old girl was forced to undergo a C-section to deliver a baby who survived four days, the latest birth underscored the challenges girls and women in Argentina face when they seek to have abortions. Among them was Thelma Fardin , a prominent actress who set off a national conversation about sexual harassment and abuse last year when she accused a co-star of raping her when she was 16 and he was Abortion is illegal in Argentina.
It came as quite a shock to fans of the popular drama series when it was revealed that the famously non-maternal Gabrielle Eva Longoria had given up designer dresses and manicures to have two children.

Not only was Gaby now rather drab, but Carlos Ricardo Antonio Chavira - who had been blinded during the tornado of season four - had traded in the life of a cut-throat businessman to become a masseur.
Abnormal function of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal HPA axis is an important pathological finding in pregnant women exhibiting major depressive disorder. They show high levels of cortisol pro-inflammatory cytokines, hypothalamic-pituitary peptide hormones and catecholamines, along with low dehydroepiandrosterone levels in plasma. During pregnancy, the TH2 balance together with the immune system and placental factors play crucial roles in the development of the fetal allograft to full term.
