The impact of endometrial thickness change after progesterone administration on pregnancy outcome in patients transferred with single frozen-thawed blastocyst.

CONCLUSIONS: In most patients, endometrial thickness on day of embryo transfer (after progesterone administration) increased or kept being stable compared with that on day of progesterone administration. An increased endometrium after progesterone administration was associated with better pregnancy outcome. PMID: 31767010 [PubMed - in process]

ConclusionsOur results indicate that men with CUAVD mainly display oligozoospermia or normozoospermia and that they were previously fertile. They clearly confirm, first, thatCFTR testing is recommended in CUAVD men and it should be mandatory for those with normal kidneys; and, second, that TRUS is needed for the diagnosis of CUAVD. As CUAVD may be present whatever the sperm count, biological warnings are represented by semen volume and seminal epididymal markers, and clinical warnings by surgical histories of undescended testes or inguinal hernia.

We present the case of a pregnant woman admitted for sudden and severe abdominal pain at 34 weeks gestation. Her previous medical history included endometriosis suspected by clinical symptoms and ultrasound. During cesarean section, performed by sustained fetal bradycardia, a large volume hemoperitoneum and multiple hemorrhagic foci in the posterior uterine wall were detected. Although rare, spontaneous hemoperitoneum may occur in pregnancy, especially in women with endometriosis. Thus, a prompt suspicion and expedite intervention are needed to improve maternal and fetal outcomes. PMID: 31703187 [PubMed - in process]

Ovarian reserve represents the number of available follicles/oocytes within ovaries and this can be assessed by measuring follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) levels, anti-M üllerian hormone (AMH) levels, and/or antral follicle count (AFC) determined by ultrasound [1]. AMH is produced in women by the granulosa cells of developing follicles and represents a marker of ovarian reserve that can be used in assisted reproduction and for prediction of menopausal age, probabil ity of natural conception, assessment of ovarian function after gonadotoxic treatment or diagnosis of polycystic ovarian syndrome [2], although its relia...

Infertility is defined by failure to achieve a pregnancy after 12 months or more of appropriate timed unprotected intercourse or therapeutic donor insemination. Ultrasound has now become an essential component of the modern investigation of female infertility and the management of assisted conception. Scans are predominantly performed transvaginally and recent technological advances such as 3D and Doppler imaging enhance our understanding of ovarian function such as ovarian reserve, follicular maturity and the assessment of polycystic morphology in the identification of polycystic ovarian syndrome. This chapter describes t...

AbstractBackgroundEndometriosis can exert obvious negative effects on women ’s quality of life.Excisional surgery is among the most effective treatments for severe pelvic endometriosis. The prevalence of severe pelvic adhesions following a laparoscopic examination of severe endometriosis varies between 50 and 100%. Temporary intraoperative ovarian suspension is a method for the reduction of adhesions is in the treatment of severe pelvic endometriosis. Given the importance and the prevalence of endometriosis and its complications, we conducted the present study to determine more effective adhesion-reducing methods wit...

CONCLUSIONS: Currently we are uncertain of an effect of the routine use of NSAIDs as co-treatments in infertile women undergoing assisted reproduction in order to improve ongoing pregnancy and miscarriage rates. This is based on available data from RCTs, where very low quality evidence showed that there is no single outcome measure demonstrating a benefit with their use. Further large, well-designed randomised placebo-controlled trials reporting on live births are required to clarify the exact role of NSAIDs. PMID: 31628860 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionPregnancy in the RTO-EM group was comparable to the salpingectomy group in patients with hydrosalpinx prior to ET treatment. Radiologically guided tubal occlusion with embolization microcoils may be an alternative to salpingectomy for patients with hydrosalpinx planning IVF-ET.

Abstract Females with symptomatic leiomyomas (fibroids) wishing to maintain fertility are faced with difficult treatment choices. These include uterine fibroid embolization (UFE), myomectomy, hormonal therapy, MRI high intensity focused ultrasound, and myolysis. This review focuses on UFE, one of the most commonly accepted minimally invasive procedural choices among patients with symptomatic fibroids wishing to retain the option of becoming pregnant in the future, and makes comparisons to myomectomy which has historically been the surgical choice for fertility-preserving fibroid treatment.
