How to use retrieval in a sentence?

    When you think about these cases, some are people who can go through another retrieval ; some can't, everybody's kind of in a different position : They had different numbers of embryos and eggs ; they have different opportunities going forward in re-creating and re-establishing their family plan.

  3. Alyssa Dweck:

    We see ‘vaginalpHhavoc,’ if you will, break out from [using a toy in the vagina that has just been used for anal play], if you want to use a toy in the anal area, first of all, remember that it has to have some sort of a retrieval device, a string or something along that line. My husband happens to be a colon and rectal surgeon, so I hear of toys getting stuck in the colon because there is nothing to remove it. If you want to switch back and forth between vaginal and anal play thenI would definitely wash the toy in between, and you may want to use a condom on some of the toys as well.
