Marital Adjustment and Its Relationship with Religious Orientations Among Iranian Infertile and Fertile Women: A Cross-Sectional Study

This study aimed to determine the status of marital adjustment and its relationship with religious orientations in fertile and infertile women. This study was conducted on 160 infertile and 320 fertile Muslim Iranian women. There was significant difference in terms of marital adjustment in two groups. There was significant relationship between marital adjustments with intrinsic religious orientation in two groups; however, there was no significant relationship between marital adjustments with extrinsic religious orientation. The results suggest that intrinsic religious orientation is likely to increase marital adjustment in fertile and infertile women. However, further studies should be performed to assess the association of religious orientations with marital adjustment in other communities and religions.

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...

Spermatogenic failure accounts for more than half of male infertility cases. Heat shock proteins (HSPs) are the molecular chaperones that are involved in different developmental stages of spermatogenesis. The current study was planned to investigate the role of HSPA1L rs2227956 and HSPA1B rs1061581 gene polymorphis...

Authors: Campo-Engelstein L, Chen D, Baratz AB, Johnson EK, Finlayson C Abstract Fertility preservation has become more common for various populations, including oncology patients, transgender individuals, and women who are concerned about age-related infertility. Little attention has been paid to fertility preservation for patients with differences/disorders of sex development (DSD). Our goal in this article is to address specific ethical considerations that are unique to this patient population. To this end, we present a hypothetical DSD case. We then explore ethical considerations related to patient's age, risk ...

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...

Conclusions In a nationally representative sample, 13.8% of reproductive-age women reported a history of infertility, of whom 40% did not access health care. Self-reported PID was associated with infertility, especially in young women. Annual chlamydia and gonorrhea screening to avert PID may reduce the burden of infertility in the United States.
