What It's Really Like To Have A Miscarriage

In the second episode of IVFML, HuffPost’s Anna Almendrala discusses her experience with miscarriages and consults a pregnancy loss expert about the ways miscarriage is misrepresented in pop culture and why society doesn’t know how to mourn. Anna and husband Simon Ganz compare notes with the creators of a miscarriage-themed play about the fertility problems they’ve endured and how they’ve turned it into comedic gold. Joining the podcast this week is miscarriage expert Dr. Kristin Bendikson of the USC Keck School of Medicine and New York-based comedians John Murray and Silvija Ozols, writers and performers of Infertile, a Sketch Comedy Show.   Listen to Part 2 of IVFML below:   IVFML is a HuffPost Podcast hosted by Anna Almendrala and Simon Ganz and produced by Nick Offenberg.

Conclusionswe suggest that women with infertility may represent a subpopulation of patients with underhanded systemic autoimmune syndromes in which the main symptoms represented are obstetrical complications. We, therefore, recommend evaluating aPLs in all patients undergoing IVF with the aim of recognizing women at a higher risk of miscarriage or pregnancy morbidity.

By Mallory Michalak, 2018 UNC-IntraHealth Summer FellowJanuary 09, 2019Midwife Tembi Mugore answers four questions about bias, shame, and what it takes to overcome them in health services for young people.At least 8% of maternal deaths worldwideare from unsafe abortions. And almost all abortion-related deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries,mostly in Africa.“But there is a stigma attached to unsafe abortion, and because of that there is a bias against clients,” saysIntraHealth International midwife and public health professional Stembile Mugore.

ConclusionsWomen with suspected endometriosis and aberrant endometrial BCL6 expression have worse reproductive outcomes following embryo transfer, including a high miscarriage rate, poor IR, and low LBR and CPR compared to cycles pre-treated with medical and surgical management.

Bradley Goldman has filled out a size large T-shirt his whole adult life. As a bodybuilder, he knew that a steady stream of lean, bland proteins, heavy weights and steroids would make his muscles pop. But over the past six months, Goldman, a fitness and nutrition consultant in Los Angeles, has watched his jacked physique soften and shrink. “I cracked a couple of weeks ago, and I had to buy a shirt a whole size smaller,” he says. He tried it on for his wife Brittany, and it hung loose on his frame. “I just kind of shook my head,” he says. He knew she saw the changes too. Goldman, now 30, began takin...

Endometrial polyps are frequently encountered in the uterine cavity of infertile women. There is much debate regarding the treatment of endometrial polyps in patients who are undergoing assisted reproductive technology (ART). A systematic review was performed by searching PubMed, Embase, and the Cochrane Library for retrospective or prospective studies that compared the effect of hysteroscopic resection of polyps with no treatment on pregnancy outcomes of patients who underwent ART. Primary outcomes were clinical pregnancy, live birth, miscarriage, and implantation rate after ART.

ConclusionFCM is widely used to assess cellular populations, but not typically employed for endometrial evaluation. FCM provides a rapid, detailed, and quantitative analysis and reduces inter-observer subjectivity bias. Detailed understanding of the normal endometrial immunophenotype, and associated deviations, may provide insight into the aetiology of infertile patients labelled “unexplained”. Failure despite transfer of high grade, or proven euploid blastocysts, is a difficult problem, and endometrial profiling may help identify research areas to determine potential future therapeutic interventions for this d...
