This study examines bowel complications caused by the progression of deep endometriosis during pregnancy or IVF. Endometriosis prevalence and its complications in pregnancy are unknown because the association is probably underreported.
Decline of serum antimüllerian hormone levels after laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy in endometrioma and other benign cysts A prospective cohort study
Bilaterality is the only significant factor in predicting the rate of decline of antim€ullerian hormone levels after laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy.
The impact of laparoscopic cystectomy on ovarian reserve in patients with unilateral and bilateral endometriomas
Ovarian reserve is negatively affected by laparoscopic cystectomy of endometriomas demonstrated by decreased antim€ullerian hormone and increased FSH levels, especially in those older than 38 years and with bilateral cysts.
Pregnancies of unknown location after in vitro fertilization minimally invasive management with Karman cannula aspiration
Outpatient management of pregnancies of unknown location using endometrial sampling with a Karman cannula aspiration can obviate the need for methotrexate.
Ovarian reserve and subsequent assisted reproduction outcomes after methotrexate therapy for ectopic pregnancy or pregnancy of unknown location
Administration of methotrexate for confirmed or suspected ectopic gestation after assisted reproduction and ovarian stimulation does not result in decreased markers of ovarian reserve or altered assisted reproduction outcomes.
In vitro fertilization does not enhance sex-specific differences in fetal growth.
Meiotic spindle normality predicts live birth in patients with recurrent in vitro fertilization failure
Normally spindled oocytes, as determined by polarized light microscopy, are associated with significantly higher pregnancy rates in patients with recurrent IVF failure.
A small but significant increase in oocyte yield was observed in consecutive IVF cycles, but only in women with normal ovarian reserve as determined by antral follicle count.
Hyperglycosylated human chorionic gonadotropin as an early predictor of pregnancy outcomes after in vitro fertilization
Hyperglycosylated human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) measured as early as 9 days after egg retrieval is superior to traditional hCG and highly predictive of ongoing pregnancies after fresh IVF–embryo transfer.
Current overview of pregnancy complications and live birth outcome of assisted reproductive technology in mainland China
We discuss the proportion of births born after assisted reproductive technology (ART) and compare the obstetric and prenatal complications between ART and spontaneous pregnancy in women in mainland China.
The impact of examining the meiotic spindle by polarization microscopy on assisted reproduction outcomes
Use of polarization microscopy was associated with increased fertilization rates but reduced cleavage rates and top quality embryos formation; no significant difference was observed for clinical pregnancy or live-birth rates.
International Committee for Monitoring Assisted Reproductive Technology world report on assisted reproductive technology 2005
This world report covers 1,052,363ART procedures performed in 53 countries during 2005. An estimated 237,315 babies were born. Data on delivery rates, multiple births, and perinatal mortality are discussed.
Influence of tumor necrosis factor α inhibitors on testicular function and semen in spondyloarthritis patients
Spondyloarthritis frequently strikes young men during sexual maturation. Patients are often chronically treated with tumor necrosis factor a blockers. We demonstrated the safety of this therapy on testicular function and spermatogenesis.
Cytomegalovirus in semen of HIV-infected men is not accurately predicted by serology, the presence of HIV, leukocytospermia, or age, and correlates with CD4+ lymphocyte blood counts <700/mL.
Impact of fresh versus cryopreserved testicular sperm upon intracytoplasmic sperm injection pregnancy outcomes in men with azoospermia due to spermatogenic dysfunction a meta analysis
After review and meta-analysis of the use of fresh versus cryopreserved sperm for intracytoplasmic sperm injection in azoospermic men with spermatogenic dysfunction, we found no difference in pregnancy or fertilization rates.
Healthy live birth using theophylline in a case of retrograde ejaculation and absolute asthenozoospermia
Theophylline was an efficient tool in stimulating immotile spermatozoa in patients with retrograde ejaculation.

Methotrexate treatment of ectopic pregnancies does not affect ovarian reserve in in vitro fertilization patients
Reflections on “Ovarian reserve and subsequent assisted reproduction outcomes after methotrexate therapy for ectopic pregnancy or pregnancy of unknown location by Hill et al.
Controversy over the use of fresh versus frozen thawed sperm for in vitro fertilization intracytoplasmic sperm injection
Reflections on “Impact of fresh versus cryopreserved testicular sperm upon intracytoplasmic sperm injection pregnancy outcomes in men with azoospermia due to spermatogenic dysfunction: a meta-analysis” by Ohlander et al.
