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.

Obstet Gynecol. 2019 Apr;133(4):e274-e278 Authors: Abstract Antimüllerian hormone is produced by the granulosa cells surrounding each oocyte in the developing ovarian follicle. The production and serum levels of antimüllerian hormone at any given time are reflective of a woman's ovarian reserve, and multiple studies have demonstrated that antimüllerian hormone levels decline across the reproductive lifespan. Data exist to support the use of antimüllerian hormone levels for th...

ConclusionThe addition of inositol and metformin to the treatment of infertile PCOS women with letrozole resistance improves the ovarian function; however, it is not significant.

CONCLUSION: For the first time we demonstrate that OCP is an effective therapy for non-atypical EH and is associated with higher remission rate compared with oral progestin. Reproductive outcomes are reassuring and comparable between the two groups. PMID: 30887764 [PubMed - in process]
