ConclusionsSingle women who are pursuing EEF alone in the mostly couples-oriented world of IVF have distinct and multifaceted needs. IVF clinics should strive to make best practices for patient-centered EEF care a high priority.
ConclusionAlthough the differences regarding success rate between groups were not found statistically significant, we still advocate that cytogenetic analysis should be performed routinely in all infertile couples namely before ART. This might help deciding the best treatment options including Preimplantation Genetic Testing for aneuploidies or structural rearrangements and minimize the risk of transmission of anomalies to the offspring.

Purpose of review The impact of intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), on the reproductive health of the offspring is largely unknown. Here we provide a comprehensive overview of the endocrine and reproductive profile in boys and young male adults born after ICSI using ejaculated spermatozoa alleviating male factor infertility in their parents. Recent findings Levels of testosterone, anti-Müllerian hormone and inhibin B were found comparable in prepubertal and pubertal boys conceived by ICSI when compared with levels in boys conceived spontaneously. Also, at young adulthood, mean levels of reproductive hormones...
