CONCLUSION: PA during pregnancy was experienced as a way to soothe the self and control the experience of pregnancy; however, this was mediated by concerns about safety and physical limitations on PA. Limitations of the study are considered, as well as implications for clinical practice and directions for future research. PMID: 29517377 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: The P-EPCF would be potentially valuable in guiding the development of a complex, couple-based intervention, which could focus on enhancing the partnership of couples and their coping strategies. PMID: 29517346 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusion Varicocele repair is a cost-effective treatment method that can improve semen parameters, pregnancy rates, and live-birth rates in most infertile men with clinical varicocele. By improving semen parameters and sperm structure, varicocele repair can decrease or even eliminate ART requirement.

Summary Globozoospermia and acephalic spermatozoa are two rare sperm head anomalies associated with male infertility. Combination of the two phenotypes in the same patient is extremely rare, so the underlying pathogenesis of this disorder remains unclear. Here, we report a 35‐year‐old infertile male, who presented with 30% of sperm‐lacked heads and 69% of sperm round‐headed or small‐headed with neck thickening in his ejaculate. Subsequent whole‐exome sequencing (WES) analysis identified compound heterozygous variants within the DNAH6 gene. DNAH6 is a testis‐specific‐expressed protein that was localised to t...

Unlike surgery, assisted reproduction, particularly in vitro fertilisation (IVF), requires a low skill base, is largely practitioner independent, is highly effective, quality controlled, reproducible and consistent in the management of endometriosis‐associated infertility. Ultimately, however, the decision to proceed to IVF or surgery is dependent on the woman, her reproductive expectations, her specific disease pattern, her support and family network and the resources available in a given health care setting.

Conclusion The significant role of SDF in male factor infertility is supported by current evidence. The beneficial role of SDF testing in selection of varicocelectomy candidates, evaluation of patients with unexplained infertility and recurrent pregnancy loss, selection of the most appropriate assisted reproductive technique with highest success rate for infertile couples, and assessment of infertile men with modifiable lifestyle factors or gonadotoxin exposure has been recently proposed.

This is perhaps the most apt mantra of IVF (in vitro fertilisation) as a treatment in Australasia in this day and age. It is also important to note the truth in the identification of IVF being low skill‐based, largely independent of the practitioner, but more importantly costly, and with few exceptions, only available in the private sector. Such revelations really require a rethink of the entire reproductive endocrinology and infertility (CREI) subspecialty. In fact, if there is only one solution to all fertility problems – that of the ‘effective IVF procedure’ – why not do away completely with th...

This study aims to investigate the effects of psychodrama on feelings of depression, anxiety, and hopelessness, as well as the level of self-esteem in female patients with infertility. The study sample consisted of 30 female patients with infertility, who applied to the In Vitro Fertilisation Unit of a university hospital in Ankara. Initially, Beck ’s Depression Inventory, Beck’s Anxiety Inventory, Beck’s Hopelessness Scale, and the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale were administered to recruited patients twice, before and after the start of the psychodrama practice. 8 weeks of psychodrama were practised w...

This study was prospectively registered with the Australian and New Zealand Clinical Trials Register, number ACTRN12612001025820. Findings Between March 12, 2013, and May 12, 2016, we randomly assigned 101 women to IUI with ovarian stimulation and 100 to expectant management, all of whom were included in the primary efficacy analysis and safety analyses. Women assigned to IUI had a higher cumulative livebirth rate than women assigned to expectant management (31 [31%] livebirths among 101 women vs nine [9%] livebirths among 100 women; risk ratio [RR] 3·41, 95% CI 1·71–6·79; p=0·0003). Of 31...
