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.

ConclusionsThis prospective case-control study is one of the largest to examine environmental factors, sperm characteristics, sperm DNA fragmentation and chromatin, and chromosome anomalies in spermatozoa in relation to unexplained recurrent pregnancy loss. The originality of our study lies in the comprehensive andrological examination and search for risk factors and fertility history. Further studies are needed to confirm the links between unexplained RPL and a male family history of infertility or miscarriages. The increased sperm aneuploidy observed in unexplained RPL supports a male etiology. These data pave the way fo...

Conclusion: CT infection in this study was prevalent in urine samples and the rate of CT was observed from culture methods in comparison to other methods. Because women with CT play an important role because of sexual activity for transmission and untreated women are at risk of developing sequels. Also, most studies in Iran use sensitive polymerase chain reaction tests for the detection of genital CT infections.

*This blog was first published at DNA Science Blog at Public Library of Science* The spindle apparatus is among the most elegant structures in a cell, quickly self-assembling from microtubules and grabbing and aligning chromosomes so that equal sets separate into the two daughter cells that result from a division. But can spindles in cells held at the brink of division in the suspended animation of the deep freeze at a fertility clinic survive being ripped from their slumber off-protocol, as happened the weekend of March 4 at the Pacific Fertility Clinic in San Francisco and University Hospitals Fe...

Conclusion Y chromosome microdeletions and chromosomal heteromorphism are not associated with RPL in Northeast China. Some RPL males had structural chromosome anomalies, all of which were reciprocal translocations. We suggest that it may not be necessary to detect Y chromosome microdeletions in RPL males with Yqh±.
