Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is an endocrine condition that has been well known for decades, with a prevalence of 8% to 13% in women of reproductive age (1). It is characterized by clinical or hormone findings of androgen excess, ovulatory disorders, and infertility, and a typical ovarian appearance. Metabolic disorders such as insulin resistance can be found in the majority of PCOS patients. However, a correct diagnosis is challenging, particularly in patients who have minor clinical symptoms.

BackgroundThe risk of adverse pregnancy outcomes is increased by having a polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) diagnosis. However, the confounders in previous studies preclude firm conclusions, and further studies are warranted.ObjectivesTo investigate whether PCOS affects pregnancy outcomes and complications in infertile women undergoing their first in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment, taking into account important confounders.MethodsWe performed a retrospective cohort study of 7,678 infertile women, including 666 women with PCOS and 7,012 controls undergoing their first IVF treatment at a private fertility center from Jan...

Abstract An increase in cholesterol levels is perceived during pregnancy and is considered as a normal adaptive response to the development of the fetus. In some pregnancies, excessive increase in total cholesterol with high levels of Low-Density Lipoprotein leads to maladaptation by the fetus to cholesterol demands, resulting in a pathological condition termed as maternal hypercholesterolemia (MH). MH is considered clinically irrelevant and therefore cholesterol levels are not routinely checked during pregnancy, as a consequence of which there is scarce information on its global prevalence in pregnant women. Stud...

At present severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is a global public health disaster (Alabdulmonem, Shariq,&Rasheed, 2020). The pandemic condition of this infection, self-isolation or quarantine regarding the fear of loss life and economic and social impact following them may have enforced dramatic changes to daily living activities including physical activity, sleep and dietary habits of adolescents. Considering these conditions, it seems that the clinical presentation of chronic disorders like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and non-adherence to treatment recommendations can be quite severe.

AbstractWhile childbearing protects against risk of epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC), few studies have explored the impact on maternal EOC risk of sex of offspring, which may affect the maternal environment during pregnancy. We performed a pooled analysis among parous participants from 12 case –controls studies comprising 6872 EOC patients and 9101 controls. Odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were calculated using multivariable logistic regression for case–control associations and polytomous logistic regression for histotype-specific associations, all adjusted for po tential confounders. In gen...

Abstract Reproduction is the biological process that sustains life. It is regulated by a neuro-hormonal mechanism that is synchronized by the interaction between the hypothalamus, the hypophysis, and the ovaries. Ovulation is regulated by the secretion of the gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH), which stimulates the release of the luteinizing hormone (LH) and the follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). In addition to these neuroendocrine signals, other signals, originating from the central nervous system, the hypophysis, the thyroid, the adrenal glands, and the ovary itself, intervene as well. One of the neurotransm...
