The most efficient option for treating unexplained infertility
An inexpensive fertility drug, which has been available for more than 50 years and can be taken orally, has proved as effective as other more costly hormones when used for ovarian stimulation before intrauterine stimulation (IUI). Investigator Dr Noor Danhof from the AMC Centre for Reproductive Medicine in Amsterdam says the results of the study, a large randomised trial performed in the Netherlands, now make this "least expensive and least invasive stimulation agent" the drug of choice in IUI.
Wonder if I could get some coding wizards to assist - just looking for most RVU 14 yo pt comes in with mom, dad, step mom. Pt spends alternating weeks with mom and then dad. Been having worsening messages from dad who has never come to a clinic visit. Recent was essentially, what the F are you doing putting my son on Risperdal; it causes infertility? Mom has new step son that was in that same day and told her about continued issues with dad's messages. I am reaching the point where... CPT coding assistance
Conclusion(s)From a reproductive point of view, there does not seem to be any reason to recommend the increase or the decrease in general physical activity in males from infertile couples. However, additional studies are needed to investigate the relationship between weightlifting and sperm quality.
Infertility and diminished fertility are relevant to pediatric populations, but only beginning to be explored and clinically managed systematically in pediatric settings. This is a significant issue, one that impacts a wide variety of pediatric patients, and complex in abundance of ways. Conceiving and/or giving birth to genetic children is only possible after the onset of puberty and typically occurs volitionally only well after that. However, pediatric patients and their families often need to grapple with fertility concerns well in advance of late adolescence and/or adulthood.
One of 2 new first-of-kind studies on HPV and infertility suggests that high-risk HPV may ascend to infect the upper genital tract, causing endometriosis and affecting fertility.
Authors: Bulun SE, Yilmaz BD, Sison C, Miyazaki K, Bernardi L, Liu S, Kohlmeier A, Yin P, Milad M, Wei J Abstract Pelvic endometriosis is a complex syndrome characterized by an estrogen-dependent chronic inflammatory process that affects primarily pelvic tissues, including the ovaries. It is caused when shed endometrial tissue travels retrograde into the lower abdominal cavity. Endometriosis is the most common cause of chronic pelvic pain in women and is associated with infertility. The underlying pathologic mechanisms in the intracavitary endometrium and extra-uterine endometriotic tissue involve defectively progr...

Publication date: May 2019Source: Reproductive BioMedicine Online, Volume 38, Issue 5Author(s): Lien M. Davidson, Yaqiong Liu, Tracey Griffiths, Celine Jones, Kevin CowardAbstractTo improve success rates, assisted reproductive technology (ART) procedures continually undergo optimization and enhancement such that the best quality gametes and embryos can be identified and manipulated, thus improving clinical outcomes. Laser technology is now being applied across ART to reduce procedure times and increase the consistency and reproducibility of traditional ART techniques such as assisted hatching, embryo biopsy, intracytoplasm...
This article aims to synthesize recent literature on reproductive health and healthcare of women Veterans. We updated a literature search to identify manuscripts published between 2008 and July 1, 2017. We excluded studies that were not original research, only included active-duty women, or had few women Veterans in their sample. Manuscripts were reviewed using a standardized abstraction form. We identified 52 manuscripts. Nearly half (48%) of the new manuscripts addressed contraception and preconception care (n = 15) or pregnancy (n = 10). The pregnancy and family planning literature showed tha...
