ConclusionsWe found that season at oocyte retrieval was not associated with livebirth, contrary to patterns seen in naturally conceived populations. However, our data did suggest modestly higher odds of clinical pregnancy for retrievals in June and July, and that higher temperature at time of retrieval was associated with higher odds of clinical pregnancy but not livebirth.

This study aimed to examine whether the time interval between the pregnancy termination to surgical evacuation of RPOC influences the reproductive outcome in asymptomatic women.DesignThis is a retrospective cohort study, which includes women who were admitted for an elective procedure in the gynecology day-care clinic due to suspected RPOC. The diagnosis was made during patients ’ routine examination following either delivery or miscarriage between the years 2010 and 2018.SettingRecords of women who were admitted to the day-care gynecology department during the years 2010 –2018 for hysteroscopic removal of RPOC...

AbstractPurposeTo study if the transfer of morphological grade-CC blastocyst is effective and safe.MethodsThis retrospective study included 2585 frozen-thawed embryo transfer (FET) cycles with grade-BB blastocysts and 102 FET cycles with grade-CC blastocysts during the period from January 2006 to December 2017. Pregnancy and neonatal outcomes of couples in two groups were analyzed before and after propensity score matching.ResultsPregnancy outcomes showed no significant difference in the rates of biochemical pregnancy, ectopic pregnancy, miscarriage, multiple gestation, gestational age (P >  0.05). However...

Conclusions Despite specific TERIF guidelines for pregnancy-related issues and the availability of alternative therapies, some pregnancies exposed to TERIF were identified. Most of the cases were because of the absence of the recommended accelerated elimination procedure and appeared to be mostly unplanned pregnancies that probably reflect a lack of effective contraception.

Cell-free fetal DNA (cffDNA) can be detected in the maternal circulation from 4 weeks gestation, and is present with cell-free maternal DNA at a level of between 5% and 20%. Cell-free DNA (cfDNA) can be extracted from a maternal blood sample and, although it is not possible to separate the fetal from the maternal cfDNA, it has enabled non-invasive prenatal diagnosis (NIPD) without the associated miscarriage risk that accompanies invasive testing. NIPD for monogenic diseases was first reported in 2000 and since then there have been many proof of principle studies showing how analysis of cfDNA can provide a definitive diagno...
