IVF By The Numbers Part 7: Pregnancy Rates For Women 38-40
With the usual disclaimers about patient selection and other ways that clinics can make their numbers look better or accept lower pregnancy rates to treat more difficult cases, here are the sorted live birth rates for women under 38-40 years old using their own eggs. This does not account for number of embryos transferred, and is not a perfect metric for “rating” a clinic (this topic, as well as other perhaps better metrics will be discussed later in this series.) This is raw data directly from the CDC website. Only clinics doing more than 20 cycles are included. clinic state live birth % KAISER PERMANENTE CENTER FOR REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH-SACRAMENTO CALIFORNIA 43% ADVANCED FERTILITY CENTER OF CHICAGO ILLINOIS 41% WAYNE STATE UNIVERSITY PHYSICIAN GROUP MICHIGAN 40% HRC FERTILITY-ENCINO CALIFORNIA 40% REPRODUCTIVE INSTITUTE OF SOUTH TEXAS TEXAS 40% WAKE FOREST UNIVERSITY CENTER FOR REPRODUCTIVE MEDICINE NORTH CAROLINA 40% COLORADO CENTER FOR REPRODUCTIVE MEDICINE COLORADO 39% HRC FERTILITY-ORANGE COUNTY CALIFORNIA 38% CHA FERTILITY CENTER CALIFORNIA 36% REPRODUCTIVE MEDICINE ASSOCIATES OF NEW JERSEY NEW JERSEY 35% CAROLINA CONCEPTIONS, PA NORTH CAROLINA 35% THE REPRODUCTIVE MEDICINE GROUP FLORIDA 35% OREGON REPRODUCTIVE MEDICINE OREGON 35% UNIVERSITY OF IOWA HOSPITALS AND CLINICS IOWA 34% UCLA FERTILITY CENTER CALIFORNIA 33% NOVA IN VITRO FERTILIZATION CALIFORNIA 33% LAUREL FERTILITY CARE CALIFORNIA 33% ...
Conclusions This study demonstrates that the use of ICSI for unexplained infertility achieved similar reproductive outcomes as male infertility cases, which are usually referred to ICSI. It also shows that the quality of semen did not positively affect ICSI outcomes.
CONCLUSION: Some childhood and pre-pregnancy cardiovascular risk factors are associated with adult subfertility. PMID: 29899387 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
To determine the effect of the using oil-soluble contrast material (OSCM) vs. water-soluble contrast material (WSCM) for hysterosalpingography on pregnancy rates in infertile women.
Publication date: Available online 12 June 2018 Source:European Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology and Reproductive Biology Author(s): Li Jie, Deng Li, Chen Yang, Zhang Haiying This systematic review aimed to compare the clinical efficacy of tamoxifen with that of clomiphene citrate (CC) in anovulatory patients. The PubMed, EMBASE, and CNKI databases were searched up to October 2016 for literature comparing tamoxifen with CC in anovulatory women. The pooled risk ratios (RR) or standardized mean differences (SMD) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were subjected to statistical analysis. Twelve studies involving 1302 p...
ConclusionPatients with endometriosis undergoing ART may have additional risk of placenta previa. Despite the inability to determine if endometriosis alone or endometriosis plus ART increase the risk, physicians should be aware of the potential additional risk that endometriosis patients undergoing ART harbor.
[Capital FM] Nairobi -We often think of reproduction as women's work. And rightly so! A mother will tell you it was not her husband who suffered the nausea and aches of pregnancy, the labour contractions, or the soreness of breastfeeding. Indeed women deserve serious credit for the back-breaking work of human reproduction.
Conclusions: Beliefs around medication safety play an important role in whether individuals with IBD decide to take medications during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Having a better understanding about why patients stop or refuse to take certain medications during key reproductive periods may allow clinicians to address specific beliefs and attitudes during office visits.
CONCLUSION: The findings suggest that spirituality plays a role in adjusting the psychological aspects of an infertile patient. PMID: 29873289 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
In conclusion, progesterone exposure during the critical period of fetal life elevated the risk of ASD, possibly reflecting epigenetic modification.
We report the case of a 28-year-old nulliparous female with unexplained infertility who underwent freeze-all vaginal oocyte retrieval. Twenty-one days later she presented with vaginal bleeding (similar to menstruation) and right lower-quadrant pain. The results of ultrasound scanning and a laboratory work-up were consistent with an ectopic pregnancy. She underwent laparoscopic right salpingectomy for a tubal ectopic pregnancy. We recommend sexual abstinence during assisted reproduction to lower the risk of multiple pregnancy and especially of heterotopic pregnancy.
