My husband and I went to a renowned mother-child hospital in the suburbs of Mumbai to seek fertility treatment since we had an issue of male factor infertility (low sperm count and morphology). As per the doctor ’s advice (which matched what we had read ourselves), we decided to go ahead with IVF-ICSI since this would the best suited for our condition since a single sperm would be injected into a single egg, thus dealing with the low sperm motility issue.

Sexually transmitted disease (STD) rates in the U.S. are at a record high for the fourth year in a row, according to new data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). All told, nearly 2.3 million cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis were diagnosed in the U.S. in 2017. That’s 200,000 more cases than were diagnosed in 2016, a year that also had a record-high number of cases, according to the CDC. “We are now very concerned about this steep and sustained increase that we’re seeing,” says Dr. Gail Bolan, the director of the CDC’s Division of STD Prevention. “We’...

Endometriosis is a very common finding in infertile women and is one of the most controversial topics. This is true for multiple reasons. For example, lots of patients with endometriosis have no symptoms at all, and this is an incidental finding either on a vaginal ultrasound scan, which picks up a chocolate cyst, or on a diagnostic laparoscopy done for checking infertility. Now, on an ultrasound scan or a laparoscopy, once the diagnosis is made, then doctors usually get itchy fingers and want to treat it. The treatment is usually doing an operative laparoscopy to remove the lesion, but whether this actually helps the pati...

Authors: Vassilopoulou L, Matalliotakis M, Zervou MI, Matalliotaki C, Spandidos DA, Matalliotakis I, Goulielmos GN Abstract The aim of the present review was to discuss a matter of concern in the clinical field of obstetrics/gynecology, namely the potency of in vitro fertilization (IVF) in the management of endometriosis-associated infertility. Endometriosis is a medical condition affecting one tenth of women in their fertile years, and accounts for up to 50% of infertile women. Thus, such high prevalence has established the necessity for investigating the effectiveness of available techniques in eradicating the di...

AbstractAsherman ’s Syndrome (AS) is an acquired condition defined by the presence of intrauterine adhesions (IUA) that cause symptoms such as menstrual abnormalities, pelvic pain, infertility, recurrent miscarriage, abnormal placentation and attendant psychological distress. Classically, AS is considered an iatro genic disease triggered by trauma to the pregnant uterus. Different factors can cause the destruction of the endometrium, thus affecting the endometrial stem cell niche and creating IUAs. Curettage of the pregnant uterus appears to be the most common source of this destruction. Nevertheless, some AS cases h...

Uterine myomas are common benign monoclonal tumors with extremely low potential for malignancy. They are estimated to be present in up to 70% of women of reproductive age [1], with a higher incidence in obese women and those of African American descent, and when symptomatic, a frequent indication for gynecologic surgery. Although the presence of myomas may be associated with a plethora of symptoms including pelvic pain, abnormal uterine bleeding, infertility/subfertility, and adverse pregnancy outcomes [2], the vast majority of women with uterine fibroids are asymptomatic.

Publication date: March 2018Source: Arab Journal of Urology, Volume 16, Issue 1Author(s): Scott D. Lundy, Edmund S. SabaneghAbstractDespite being first described two thousand years ago, the varicocele remains a controversial multifaceted disease process with numerous biological consequences including infertility, hypogonadism, and chronic orchidalgia. The underlying mechanisms remain poorly understood and likely include hypoxia, oxidative stress, hyperthermia, anatomical aberrations, and genetics as primary components. Despite a high prevalence amongst asymptomatic fertile men, varicoceles paradoxically also represent the ...
