Conclusions: Our results suggest that first, natural conception rates could potentially increase with more frequent and well timed intercourse, and second that further work is needed to understand why even in a motivated sample of women monitoring their fertile periods, both the conception and coitus rates were low.

Hairston et  al. present results from a cross-sectional survey of members of the Society for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (SREI) exploring attitudes and practice related to “compassionate transfer” of frozen embryos (1). The practice of compassionate transfer is “the intentional placement o f embryo(s) into the female reproductive tract…when implantation is unlikely to occur”, that is, a transfer done with the explicit goal of not establishing a pregnancy. The authors sent a survey to 704 SREI members, of whom 202 (27.1%) responded, and 168 (83.2%) confirmed that they had k...

This article discusses students' perspectives on fertility control, including induced abortion, in Antananarivo, Madagascar. The study draws on a total of nine weeks of ethnographic fieldwork conducted in 2016 and 2017. It argues that while the majority of the students do not refrain from premarital sex, they negotiate their desire for physical intimacy in accordance with the prevailing discourse of premarital abstinence among the Merina ethnic group in the central highlands. In this context, modern contraception, particularly hormonal birth control that could cause menstruation to cease, is considered highly problematic s...

Holly L. Neibergs Heifer conception rate (HCR) is defined as the percentage of inseminated heifers that become pregnant at each service. The genome-wide association analyses in this study focused on identifying the loci associated with Holstein heifer (n = 2013) conception rate at first service (HCR1) and the number of times bred (TBRD) to achieve a pregnancy. There were 348 unique loci associated (p < 5 × 10−8) with HCR1 and 615 unique loci associated (p < 5 × 10−8) with TBRD. The two phenotypes shared 302 loci, and 56 loci were validated in independent cattle popu...
