[In Depth] Can flu shots help women get pregnant?

Two new clinical trials are testing whether flu vaccines increase the effectiveness of in vitro fertilization (IVF). The studies draw on new discoveries about the immune system's role in reproduction. Doctors used to think that the immune system had to shut down during pregnancy so that it wouldn't destroy the embryo. Now, researchers realize that the immune system remains active but learns to accept the embryo, developing what's known as tolerance. The trials will test whether flu shots increase tolerance toward the embryo and improve the success rate of IVF. One trial includes women undergoing IVF with embryos created from their own eggs, and the other trial includes women who receive embryos created from donor eggs.  Author: Mitch Leslie

Mel B Had Pre-Nup

Mel's B's estranged husband is expected to get just £5 million in their divorce.
The former Spice Girls singer filed for divorce from Stephen Belafonte earlier this week and it has now emerged he won't be getting an equal share of her estimated £48 million fortune because they signed a pre-nuptial agreement before they tied the knot in June 2007.
A source told The Sun Online: "Mel is a canny Yorkshire lass and was advised to protect her assets and estate before the wedding.
"This wasn't an act of preparing for the marriage to fail but was an act of a hard-nosed business woman who knew the pitfalls that can lie ahead in any relationship."
It isn't known how much was stated in the documents, but legal expert Harold Walker admitted Stephen, 41, could get more than their pre-agreed sum if he could prove he had turned down work in order to support the 41-year-old star's business endeavours.
He said: "A figure could be added to the pre-nup if it is shown that he has effectively turned down work to be at his wife's side.
"I think a total of a £5 million settlement that includes the pre-nup and any additional lost work seems reasonable and certainly a lot less than half of £48 million."
It was previously claimed the former couple had taken their five-year-old daughter Madison and Mel's children Phoenix, 18, whom she has with ex-husband Jimmy Gulzar and Angel, nine, from her fling with Eddie Murphy, to a family therapy session in order to "make sure their kids are OK" in the wake of the split.
The pair were said to have travelled in separate cars to the session which took place in Mulholland Estates in Beverly Hills, at the home of Mel's long time psychiatrist Doctor Charles Sophy.
And all three children travelled in a third car with their nanny.
The reported family therapy session is believed to be the first session of this kind that the pair have attended, though it was previously reported they had tried couples therapy before their split to no avail.
A source said: "They started from the beginning when they realised they were very different people, who would argue and row. Their personalities were like fire and ice, one minute it was pure adoration and the next it was an all-out war.
"It led to them having blow-out arguments non-stop. However, as they got further down the line, the stress of keeping things together proved too much. The therapy prompted more fights and bitterness. Their connection by the end was all but burned out."

Marc Anthony: Jennifer Lopez Is My 'Girl for Life'

Marc Anthony says Jennifer Lopez is his "girl for life".
The 48-year-old singer was married to the 'Shades of Blue' actress for 10 years until 2014 and insists the pair will always be great friends as they have been close ever since they first met.
He told Extra: "If you want to get along with a woman, just get divorced ... I'm producing her Spanish album, which is, I'm telling you right now, some of the best work I've ever done and some of the best work that she's ever done.
"The fact that she put her career in my hands is a massive responsibility, but no one knows her like I do ... We've always been good friends from day one, you know. We met working, 20-something years ago ... She's my goombah. That's my girl for life."
Meanwhile, Jennifer - who shares nine-year-old twins Max and Emme with Marc - previously admitted the couple's split was "good for the whole family".
She said: "At first I was like, 'We're good with the kids and everything, but if we start working together, are we gonna start going at each other again?' And it's been awesome. Honestly, I think it's even helped our relationship.
"We're just in a really great place, and the kids get to spend time with the two of us more together and see us working together. It's just good for the whole family."
And the 47-year-old singer and actress considers her divorce from Marc as the "biggest disappointment" of her life.
She said: "It was devastating and awful. I think both Marc and I thought at the time we would be together for the next 40 years until we die.
"It was the biggest disappointment of my life so far. [But] I felt like at that time I had lost my way a little bit, of who I was in trying to make the marriage work.
"I had been married twice before and I didn't want this to be a failure ... I just put all my heart and soul into that and forgot who I was as an individual a little bit."
