10 agosto 2015

Women who give birth to babies conceived by in-vitro fertilization are at increased risk of experiencing long-term symptoms of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease, according to the results of a study. Gastro-esophageal reflux disease is a common condition in which acid from the stomach travels up into the esophagus and causes heartburn, regurgitation and pain when swallowing.
