Effect of pretreatment with a levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system on IVF and vitrified–warmed embryo transfer outcomes in women with adenomyosis
ConclusionsThe results of this study offer some support for evaluating the effect of pretreatment with LNG-IUS in women with adenomyosis in future randomized controlled trials.
ConclusionPre-conceptional TSH levels ranging between 0.5-4.5 mU/L does not appear to have a significant effect on IUI outcome of euthyroid women who are negative for thyroid antibodies.
Does it make sense, medically or ethically, when fertility clinics refuse to treat prospective mothers they consider too large?
ConclusionWhile components of a mixture of lipids and lipophilic micronutrients were associated with live birth outcomes following IVF, a larger investigation is necessary to fully evaluate the potential clinical implications.
Authors: Mencaglia L, Cerboneschi M, Ciociola F, Ricci S, Mancioppi I, Ambrosino V, Ferrandi C, Strozzi F, Piffanelli P, Grasselli A Abstract Female fertility plays a decisive role in the reproduction of mammals, with related issues that include oocyte or embryo quality, establishment of pregnancy, and the physiology of the tissues that contribute to reproduction and metabolic disorders associated with reproductive failure. Although reproductive failure may be attributed to various factors in different species, female infertility is largely controlled by a number of molecular signals that can be regulated in a cycl...
AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe classification of morphologically normal sperm has been progressively redefined. Concurrently, our understanding of the significance of sperm morphology in relation to male factor infertility has evolved. In this review, we will discuss the evolution of sperm morphology assessment and factors that contribute to its measurement variability. We will examine the impact of sperm morphology on natural pregnancy, IUI, IVF, and ICSI outcomes.Recent FindingsThere is a lack of consensus on sperm morphology classification, technique, and inter-observer grading variability. Current evidence suggests sperm...
With Father’s Day mere days away, we’re hearing more advertisements for outdoor grills and golf clubs, sailboats and fishing gear. As an infertility counselor, I am glad that Father’s Day is not welcomed with the gush of sentiment that envelops Mother’s Day. Still, a day dedicated to celebrating fatherhood can be difficult for any number of people. Among them are men and women who lost their fathers when they were quite young, and those who have experienced rocky relationships with their dads. There are men who have regrets about their own role as fathers, and older gay men who missed out on fatherh...
About 13 out of every 100 couples cannot get pregnant. It's a stressful and emotional time, and it's often considered a female issue. The CDC says both men and women contribute to infertility in about 35 percent of couples. The man is the only factor in about eight percent of cases. Dr. Tara Narula joins "CBS This Morning" to discuss some of the causes of male infertility and why it's so difficult for men to talk about the issue.

AbstractObjectiveTo determine whether younger oocyte donor age is associated with better outcomes after in vitro fertilization (IVF) compared with older oocyte donor age.DesignA retrospective cohort study.SettingLarge academically affiliated infertility treatment center.PatientsWe included all women ≥ 18 years who started their first fresh cycle using donor oocytes at our center from January 2002 through October 2017; only the first oocyte recipient cycle was analyzed.InterventionLog-binomial regression was used to compare the incidence of clinical pregnancy and live birth among the following donor age groups:
