Authors: Campo-Engelstein L, Aziz R, Darivemula S, Raffaele J, Bhatia R, Parker WM Abstract In 2012, the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) lifted the experimental label on oocyte preservation, but cautioned against women using it to avoid age-related infertility, known as social egg freezing (SEF). In 2014, Facebook and Apple announced that they would offer SEF as a workplace benefit. Within the context of a rapidly growing market for SEF, we were interested in how these two decisions affected media discussions, given that such discourse can strongly influence public perceptions and behaviors. We us...

The most important ingredient when selecting an IVF clinic is actually an intangible one. It's not how posh the clinic is ; or how big their team of doctors ; or what their success rates are ; or how many ads they pay for in newspapers . It's actually a question of trust in the doctor - does the IVF doctor inspire trust or not?This depends on intuition and gut feel, and the chemistry between the doctor and patient varies from patient to patient, which is why not all patients are happy with one particular doctor. As a patient, you need to spend time finding the one who is right for you.The traditional of building trust depe...

Authors: Pascual MA, Alcazar JL, Graupera B, Pedrero C, Fernandez-Cid M, Hereter L Abstract Objective: To compare the uterine transverse diameter (UTD) in women with normal uteri and women with uterine canalization defects as well as to assess its performance for ruling out such defects. Study Design: Retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data in a series of selected women with primary or secondary infertility. Measurement of UTD and 3D volume acquisition for subsequent off-line analysis was performed in order to identify possible canalization defects. UTD of the normal uterus, measured by 2D ultras...

AbstractWhetherUreaplasma spp. are a causative agent of male infertility remains controversial. Previous studies concerningUreaplasma spp. and male infertility have been confined to the species level ofUreaplasma. Currently, an expanded multilocus sequence typing (eMLST) scheme has been established with high discriminatory power. The aim of this study was to use eMLST to explore the distribution ofUreaplasma spp. and to analyze its role in oligozoospermia and semen quality. A total of 480 semen samples were obtained from Chinese infertile males. The associations betweenUreaplasma spp. with oligozoospermia and semen charact...

Capsid protein Vp1 from chlamydiaphage φCPG1 effectively alleviates cytotoxicity induced by Chlamydia trachomatis. Exp Ther Med. 2018 Oct;16(4):3286-3292 Authors: Ren J, Guo Y, Shao L, Liu Y, Liu Q Abstract Chlamydia trachomatis is the leading cause of sexually transmitted bacterial infections. C. trachomatis genital infection may lead to pelvic inflammatory disease, ectopic pregnancy and tubal infertility, which are major public health problems. However, the pathogenic mechanisms of this bacterium remain unclear, and the efficacy of clinical therapeutics is unsatisfactory. In the current study, wh...
