Do young women with unexplained infertility show manifestations of decreased ovarian reserve?

AbstractPurposeTo investigate whether unexplained infertility at a young age demonstrates manifestations of decreased ovarian reserve.MethodsA total of 100 women were divided into two equally sized groups. The study group comprised women aged ≤ 37 years diagnosed with unexplained infertility, and the control group included age-matched women with either mechanical factor or severe male factor infertility.ResultsBoth groups were comparable in their basic characteristics. Overall, women with unexplained infertility presented with inferior ovarian reserve results set against women of the control group. The number of ≥ 14-mm follicles on the day of hCG administration was significantly lower in the study compared with the control group (7.0 ± 4.5 vs. 10.4 ± 4.1 follicles, respectively,P

AbstractStudies suggesting an association between thyroid autoimmunity and pregnancy-related adverse outcomes, particularly miscarriage and preterm delivery, date to nineties. The postulated causes for these associations were attributed to a direct or indirect effect of autoimmunity and/or to a mild thyroid impairment.Since then, small trials and several meta-analyses confirmed a detrimental effect of thyroid autoimmunity and suggested that patients with thyroid autoimmunity who wish to conceive or are pregnant might benefit from levothyroxine treatment to decrease the rate of miscarriage and preterm delivery.A recently pu...

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...
