Higher self-reported past year physical activity was associated with favorable pregnancy outcomes following in vitro fertilization (IVF). Physical activity and sedentary behavior following IVF were not associated with pregnancy outcomes.
Formation of endometriomas may cause focal exhaustion of the stockpile of primordial follicles by upregulation of recruitment and atresia of follicles at early developmental stages, which may eventually result in a decreased ovarian reserve.
Antimüllerian hormone is highly correlated with number of eggs retrieved. Very low levels are associated with diminished yet reasonable pregnancy rates, mediated through number of oocytes retrieved as opposed to oocyte quality.
Two case reports are presented, in which GnRH triggering and the freeze-all approach in a GnRH antagonist protocol resulted in the development of severe OHSS, requiring hospitalization and peritoneal drainage.
Levels of aldehyde dehydrogenase-1A2 (ALDH1A2), which synthesizes retinoic acid, are significantly reduced in testicular tissue from men with infertility compared with controls, suggesting an association between ALDH1A2 and male infertility.
Areas of spermatogenesis may be missed with conventional testicular sperm extraction (TESE) in azoospermic men with testicular cancer. Microdissection TESE should be offered at orchiectomy to maximize sperm retrieval.
Effects of coital lubricants and oils on sperm motility were evaluated. Astroglide, KY lubricants (Sensitive, Warming, and Tingling), and sesame oil reduced sperm motility significantly, and mustard oil exposure caused sperm hyperactivation.
