Frozen Embryos May Increase Chances Of Becoming Pregnant

BOSTON (CBS) – Fertility experts usually prefer to work with fresh embryos when women are undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF), but according to a new study frozen may be better than fresh in some women. About 10% of women of reproductive age have polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). It’s a common cause of infertility and IVF in these women can pose some risks. But researchers looked at more than 1500 women with PCOS and found that those who received frozen embryos had lower rates of complication and a greater likelihood of a successful pregnancy than those who received fresh embryos. The scientists say fertility specialists should consider freezing all embryos women with PCOS before transferring them into the womb.

Authors: Palomba S, Falbo A, Daolio J, Battaglia FA, LA Sala GB Abstract Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common female disorder with a pathogenesis still today not completely known. To the present, PCOS is considered more than just a reproductive disorder since several metabolic consequences that could affect women's health during different stages of reproductive and post-reproductive life were reported. The aim of the current review was to evaluate present evidence-based data regarding the pregnancy complications in infertile patients with PCOS. An extensive literature search until February 2018 was performe...

ine W Abstract Infertility is a disease characterized by the failure to establish a clinical pregnancy after 12 months of regular and unprotected sexual intercourse. It is estimated to affect between 8 and 12% of reproductive-aged couples worldwide. Males are found to be solely responsible for 20-30% of infertility cases but contribute to 50% of cases overall. Secondary infertility is the most common form of female infertility around the globe, often due to reproductive tract infections. The three major factors influencing the spontaneous probability of conception are the time of unwanted non-conception, the age...

Men and women follow the Wheat Belly lifestyle and can undergo important and sometime startling hormonal changes. Though results vary with stage of life—young adults, middle-aged, older—there are a variety of hormonal changes that women and men typically experience, some in concert, others independently. Such hormonal shifts can be powerful and part of the health-restoring menu of changes that develop with this lifestyle. They can even improve a relationship in a number of ways, both physically and emotionally, especially if we weave in some of the newer Wheat Belly/Undoctored concepts and practices such as oxy...

Abstract The increasing prevalence of morbid obesity in Germany is associated with an increasing number of metabolic surgical interventions. Short-term surgical and long-term metabolic complications - such as nutrient deficiencies - are the main risks of metabolic surgery and the resulting malabsorption. Obesity, especially morbid obesity, is associated with a high incidence of female infertility. One important cause of female infertility in obese women is the polycystic ovary syndrome, with 6 - 10%. Metabolic surgery significantly increases the fertility of obese women. The positive effect of obesity surgery ...

Conclusions Although TND is simple, safe, and less invasive than LOD, its effect on ovarian reserve appears to be transient and diminishes at 6 months. Multicenter studies are warranted to confirm efficacy as second-line treatment in patients with CC-resistant PCOS. (Pan African Clinical Trials Registry http://www.pactr.org PACTR2017020020135137)

This study was a secondary analysis of the Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Acupuncture and Clomiphene Trial (PCOSAct), a large randomized controlled trial conducted at 27 hospitals from 2012 to 2015 in mainland China.PARTICIPANTS/MATERIALS, SETTING, METHODSOut of 1000 women with PCOS, SHS exposure status were available in 500 women, of whom 271 women were non-exposed and 229 exposed to cigarette smoke (170 women ≤10 cigarettes per day as low-SHS exposed and 59 women>10 cigarettes per day as high-SHS exposed). We compared circulating sex steroids, glucose and lipid metabolism, metabolic syndrome and phenotypes, fertility an...

AbstractSTUDY QUESTIONWhat are the impacts of elevated testosterone (T) and an obesogenic western-style diet (WSD), either independently or together, on fertility and metabolic adaptations of pregnancy in primates?SUMMARY ANSWERTestosterone increases the time to achieve pregnancy, while a WSD reduces overall fertility, and the combination of testosterone and WSD additionally impairs glucose tolerance and causes pregnancy loss.WHAT IS KNOWN ALREADYBoth hyperandrogenemia and obesity are hallmarks of polycystic ovary syndrome, which is a leading cause of infertility among women worldwide. Female macaques receiving T and WSD b...
