Women with heavy periods should have scans to prevent infertility

The health watchdog Nice wants GPs to refer many more patients for accurate hospital tests to establish why they suffer from heavy periods in a bid to detect underlying problems that may result in infertility.

ConclusionsOverall, there was no significant difference in birth defects resulting from IVF ‐ICSI with autologous or donor oocytes. The births resulting from IVF‐ICSI pregnancies did not tend to have a higher rate of birth defects a compared with natural conceptions. The differences in the prevalence of certain birth defects (cardiovascular or central nervous system) reported in IVF‐ ICSI pregnancies may be due to improved surveillance modalities and early detection in pregnancies following IVF‐ICSI. A study with larger number of sample size will give us better understanding of the prevalence of reported incidence in this study.

AbstractIntroductionLarge observational studies have shown that obstetric and perinatal outcomes are negatively affected in obese women. In contrast, a recent Dutch randomized trial of infertile women and lifestyle weight intervention found no difference between the weight intervention group and the control group in obstetric or neonatal outcomes. We have recently published a large Nordic randomized trial where obese women scheduled for in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment went through an intensive weight intervention treatment before IVF. No significant effect on live birth rate was found, despite large weight loss in t...
