Perinatal outcome of monochorionic and dichorionic twins after spontaneous and assisted conception: a retrospective cohort study

ConclusionsSpontaneous conceived twins have worse pregnancy outcome compared to twins after assisted conception, probably due to a lower incidence of monochorionicity in the assisted conception group. The already increased perinatal risks in monochorionic twins are even higher in monochorionic twins conceived after infertility treatments compared to spontaneous conceived monochorionic twins which warrants extra attention to these high risk pregnancies.This article is protected by copyright.

The primary objective was to assess the utility of routine 3-dimensional (3D) ultrasound in the evaluation of infertile women and to estimate the prevalence of uterine anomalies before the use of assisted reproductive technology (ART), using the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology and the European Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy classification system. A second objective was to assess the effect of uterine anomalies on the pregnancy rate in patients who underwent assisted reproductive techniques. We retrospectively studied 668 patients treated in the Department Obstetrics Gynecology and Neonatology &...

My husband and I went to a renowned mother-child hospital in the suburbs of Mumbai to seek fertility treatment since we had an issue of male factor infertility (low sperm count and morphology). As per the doctor ’s advice (which matched what we had read ourselves), we decided to go ahead with IVF-ICSI since this would the best suited for our condition since a single sperm would be injected into a single egg, thus dealing with the low sperm motility issue. The specialist told us that my husband could give sperm deposits which would be frozen and pooled along with a fresh sample for best chances of embryos developing. ...

Endometriosis is a very common finding in infertile women and is one of the most controversial topics. This is true for multiple reasons. For example, lots of patients with endometriosis have no symptoms at all, and this is an incidental finding either on a vaginal ultrasound scan, which picks up a chocolate cyst, or on a diagnostic laparoscopy done for checking infertility. Now, on an ultrasound scan or a laparoscopy, once the diagnosis is made, then doctors usually get itchy fingers and want to treat it. The treatment is usually doing an operative laparoscopy to remove the lesion, but whether this actually helps the pati...

We report the case of a 28-year-old nulliparous female with unexplained infertility who underwent freeze-all vaginal oocyte retrieval. Twenty-one days later she presented with vaginal bleeding (similar to menstruation) and right lower-quadrant pain. The results of ultrasound scanning and a laboratory work-up were consistent with an ectopic pregnancy. She underwent laparoscopic right salpingectomy for a tubal ectopic pregnancy. We recommend sexual abstinence during assisted reproduction to lower the risk of multiple pregnancy and especially of heterotopic pregnancy.
