Comparing the role of anti-Müllerian hormone as a marker of FSH action in male and female fertility. Expert Rev Endocrinol Metab. 2019 Mar 04;:1-12 Authors: Urrutia M, Grinspon RP, Rey RA Abstract INTRODUCTION: Originally limited to the assessment of disorders of sex development, anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) measurement has more recently been extended to several conditions affecting the reproductive axis in males and females. Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) regulation of gonadal function has been extensively studied, but its role on AMH production has been explored only recently. Areas cov...

The databases PubMed, EMBASE and the Cochrane Library were searched for relevant studies. The association between PCOS and risk of FSD was assessed by relative risk or standard mean differences with 95% confidence interval. The protocol ...

Rationale: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most common endocrine disorder in reproductive women. Many of the complications associated with PCOS, such as obesity, hirsutism, alopecia, infertility and acne. PCOS symptoms can lead to significant deterioration in quality of life and be highly stressful negatively affecting psychological well-being. At the same time, production of inflammatory cytokines occurs due to the increase in fat tissue. Hyperactivity of the pituitary-hypothalamus and the adrenal axis is triggered by pro-inflammatory cytokines, which can lead to depression.

In this study, we aimed to examine sexual function in women with PCOS, exposed to maternal androgen excess during their prenatal life compared to non-exposed PCOS patients. In this cross-sectional study, 768 married women with PCOS, aged 18-49 years, were subdivided into two groups, based on their mothers' PCOS status: women whose mothers had PCOS (N = 94) and women whose mothers did not have PCOS (N = 674). Data were collected using a questionnaire including information on demographics, anthropometric and reproductive characteristics, and the Female Sexual Function Index. Blood serum samples were ...

Key content The symptoms of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) include menstrual cycle disturbance and features of hyperandrogenism (hirsutism, acne and alopecia), with associated fertility problems, obesity and psychological issues. There are ethnic variations in expression of PCOS related to differences in insulin metabolism and this may impact upon treatment algorithms. Obesity has a major impact on the expression of PCOS and the efficacy of the management of all aspects of the syndrome, in particular infertility. The management of anovulatory infertility involves lifestyle modification and therapies to induce ovulati...

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), which is the most common endocrine disorder among women of reproductive age, includes a variety of clinical manifestations (menstrual irregularities, hirsuitism, acne, alopecia, obesity and infertility), due to androgen hypersecretion, insulin ...

Authors: Pignatelli D Abstract Non-classic adrenal hyperplasia (NCAH) is a disease in which a partial deficiency of the steroidogenic enzyme 21-hydroxylase produces mild to moderate hyperandrogenemia, hirsutism, polycystic ovaries, oligomenorrhea or amenorrhea, insulin resistance, male pattern baldness and subfertility. The resemblances between NCAH and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) are manifest, and a relation between the two has been sought by many authors trying to identify subtle alterations in the CYP21 gene transcription end-products as the cause or a contributing cause of PCOS. On the other hand, the diff...
