Accumulation of unfolded proteins as a result of increased endoplasmic reticulum stress in the developing murine preimplantation embryo in vitro triggers apoptosis and negatively affects blastocyst formation.
Long-term elevated NEFA concentrations, typical in metabolic disorders, such as obesity or type 2 diabetes, alter follicular growth and physiology, ultimately resulting in reduced oocyte developmental competence in vitro.
Changes in steroid concentrations during the reproductive cycle are delayed in oviductal fluid (OF) compared with serum. Oocyte incubation with pre- or postovulatory OF differentially affects in vitro fertilization efficiency.
Highly represented exosomal microRNAs in human follicular fluid control pathways that are essential for follicular maturation. Identified microRNAs may be very useful as noninvasive biomarkers of oocyte quality.
We discuss how growth hormone treatment of girls born small for gestational age appeared to normalize ovarian morphology and function, while the long-term effects of growth hormone treatment on adult reproductive function remain unknown.
Patients in fertility treatment who have ended relationships and repartnered have higher levels of infertility stress before and after separation compared with those who remain in the same relationship.
The presence of objective hot flashes accounts for a statistically significant proportion of the total amount of time spent awake after sleep onset, as defined by polysomnography in perimenopausal women.
DNA retrieved by blastocentesis provided a chromosome condition that was highly correspondent with that found in trophectoderm cells. Results from polar bodies and blastomeres were also predictive of the blastocyst’s ploidy.
Ectopic pregnancy rates among Medicaid beneficiaries declined slightly in California, Illinois, and New York in 2000–2008, but African American women face consistently higher rates than whites across 14 diverse states.
Patients with endometriosis-associated ovarian clear cell carcinoma had distinct clinicopathological features and improved survival rates, although endometriosis was not an independent predictor of survival itself.
This retrospective cohort study presents the live birth rate in 52 patients with three or more previous pregnancy losses after assisted reproductive techniques who were treated with intravenous immunoglobulin and prednisone concurrent with in vitro fertilization/intracytoplasmic sperm injection.
