The objective of this CFAS guideline is to provide evidence-based recommendations using the GRADE (Grading of Recommendations, Assessment, Development and Evaluations) framework on the assessment, impact and management of thin endometrium in assisted reproduction. The effect of endometrial thickness on pregnancy and live birth outcomes in ovarian stimulation and IVF (fresh and frozen cycles) is addressed. In addition, recommendations on the use of adjuvants to improve endometrial thickness and pregnancy outcomes are provided.

Hi, I was looking to do some volunteering over my M1 summer in my spare time (in addition to research) so I was considering volunteering for a crisis pregnancy center near me. I helped out a friend running the place here and there a few years ago before medical school, and would be interested in having more a major role. I did mention it in my interview to medical school, and my interviewer seemed to praise it, saying we need more people your age fighting for what's right. I really do... Volunteering for Pregnancy Center over summer?

We present a method for the analysis of an extended group of gene variants associated with recessive and dominant autosomal disorders using next-generation sequencing. The proposed test should allow a complete analysis of common genetic disorders and pathogen-associated variants for diagnostic use. The analysis of cffDNA for single gene disorders may replace invasive prenatal diagnosis methods, associated with the risk of spontaneous abortion and psychological stress for patients. The proposed test should assess reproductive risk both for genetic family disorders and de novo occurrences of the disease. The application of t...
