Women’s preconception health patterns in traditional Chinese medicine as a predictor of fertility outcomes

ConclusionThree unhealthy TCM patterns during the preconception period might be risk factors for low fecundity or poor pregnancy outcomes. The TCM preconception pattern identification may provide a convenient and effective way to screen for potential pregnancy risks beyond the NFPC. Further, appropriate interventions based on the TCM preconception health patterns are needed to improve quality in women’s fecundability and birth outcomes.

Conclusions: Data highlight the importance of developing specific support groups, for primiparae, due to their great emotional vulnerability, and for women with past miscarriage, to help them cope in adaptive ways with a new pregnancy. PMID: 32064903 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractBackgroundEighty per cent of UK women have at least one baby, making pregnancy an opportunity to help women stop smoking before their health is irreparably compromised. Smoking cessation during pregnancy helps protect infants from miscarriage, still birth, low birth weight, asthma, attention deficit disorder and adult cardiovascular disease. UK national guidelines highlight lack of evidence for effectiveness of financial incentives to help pregnant smokers quit. This includes a research recommendation: within a UK context, are incentives an acceptable, effective and cost-effective way to help pregnant women who smo...

ConclusionOn average aneuploidy is detected in 34 % of embryos when performing a single blastocyst biopsy derived from patients carrying or affected by an inherited disorder. Accordingly, when screening for aneuploidy, the risk of experiencing a cycle with no transferable embryos increases. Current available data on the clinical effect of preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidy performed concurrently with preimplantation genetic testing for inherited disorders is sparse, rendering the clinical effect from preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidy difficult to access.

CONCLUSIONS: Laparoscopic ovarian drilling with and without medical ovulation induction may decrease the live birth rate in women with anovulatory PCOS and CC resistance compared with medical ovulation induction alone. But the sensitivity analysis restricted to only RCTs at low risk of selection bias suggests there is uncertainty whether there is a difference between the treatments, due to uncertainty around the estimate. Moderate-quality evidence shows that LOD probably reduces the number of multiple pregnancy. Low-quality evidence suggests that there may be little or no difference between the treatments for the likelihoo...

This study provides safety information about inadvertent MenACWY-CRM vaccination during pregnancy. METHODS: The evaluated population consisted of pregnant female members of Kaiser Permanente Southern California who inadvertently received MenACWY-CRM at 11-21 years of age during 09/30/2011-06/30/2013 within 28 days prior to conception or during pregnancy. Chart abstraction was conducted to identify pregnancy and birth outcomes, including spontaneous and induced abortions, preterm births, low weight births, and major congenital malformations (MCMs). RESULTS: There were 92 women who received MenACWY-CRM du...

Investigation of the microbial community in the female reproductive tract using sequencing techniques has revealed that endometrial samples obtained through a transvaginal catheter are dominated by Lactobacillus species. Dysbiotic changes in the endometrial microbiota may be associated with implantation failure or early spontaneous abortion in patients undergoing assisted reproductive technology (ART) treatment. Whether or not there is an endometrial microbiota in early pregnancy is unknown.Herein we describe, the human endometrial microbiota in a patient who subsequently had an 8th week spontaneous clinical miscarriage wi...
