Tanzania:Infertility - When Neither He Nor She Is the Cause

[Citizen] Causes of infertility and their respective treatments are so diverse. Infertility could arise from either male or female factors leading dysfunction. Hormonal tests, tests for physical damage to the ovaries and fallopian tubes caused by diseases such as fibroids, endometriosis and others are standard procedures to test for female infertility factors.

AbstractPurposeTo investigate a possible influence of repetitive micro-traumata on the ovaries in the course of oocyte retrieval during IVF/ICSI treatment on serum anti-M üllerian hormone (AMH) levels.MethodsThe study included retrospectively collected data from women who underwent three or more consecutive IVF/ICSI treatments between 2007 and 2017. The primary endpoint of the study was to evaluate changes in serum AMH levels on cycle days 1 –3 during the course of repetitive IVF/ICSI treatments.ResultsA total of 125 patients were included in this study. Median AMH levels before the first, second and third IVF/I...

Introduction: Endometriosis is an enigmatic disease affecting up to 10% of reproductive-aged women causing pain and infertility. Deep infiltrating endometriosis (DIE) is the most severe form of the disease. The impact of surgical treatment for deep endometriosis on fertility success rate of assisted reproduction techniques (ART) is not clear.

Abstract The ovarian steroid hormones, estrogen (E2) and progesterone (P4), are essential regulators of uterine biology. The imbalance of these ovarian steroid hormones leads to uterine diseases such as endometrial cancer, endometriosis, and infertility. Mitogen-inducible gene 6 (MIG-6) is an adaptor protein. MIG-6 mediates P4 signaling and acts as a tumor suppressor during endometrial tumorigenesis in both humans and mice. In previous studies, we developed the conditional knockout of Mig-6 in all uterine compartments (Pgrcre/+Mig-6f/f; Mig-6KO) and endometrial epithelial cell-specific Mig-6 knockout (Sprr2fcre/+M...

Anastasiu Endometriosis represents a severe gynecological pathology, defined by implantation of endometrial glands and stroma outside the uterine cavity. This pathology affects almost 15% of women during reproductive age and has a wide range of consequences. In affected women, infertility has a 30% rate of prevalence and endometriosis implants increase the risk of ovarian cancer. Despite long periods of studies and investigations, the etiology and pathogenesis of this disease still remain not fully understood. Initially, endometriosis was related to retrograde menstruation, but new theories have been launched, sugge...

CONCLUSION: Several coding and non-coding MSY-linked genes displayed microchimerism as evidenced by the presence of their respective DNA inserts, along with their differential transcript expression, in the endometrium during endometriosis and in cases of infertility.

Abstract The aim of this study was to evaluate the possible effects of endometriosis on early embryo development, by comparing the morphokinetic development of embryos obtained from women with clinically confirmed endometriosis with the ones obtained from tubal factor infertility cases. A total of 82 cycles/patients including 53 cycles with endometriosis and 29 cycles with tubal factor infertility were evaluated. A total of 439 embryos were scored for embryo morphokinetics. Age, body mass index, fertilization rates were similar within the groups. However, the number of previous ART trials was found to be higher (p

Sexually transmitted infections and pelvic inflammatory disease are the most common cause of tubal damage, gynaecologists can play an important role in the identification and early treatment. Pelvic surgery for conditions such as leiomyoma, ovarian cysts and endometriosis can lead to pelvic adhesions and iatr...
