Prediction of in vitro fertilization outcome at different antral follicle count thresholds in a prospective cohort of 1,012 women

Monday, June 18, 2012
While AFC and age are predictive of live birth following IVF treatment, AFC demonstrates a stronger positive correlation. This study illustrates post-test probabilities of live birth at individual AFC thresholds.

Psychological distress and in vitro fertilization outcome

Tuesday, June 12, 2012
In vitro fertilization failure predicts psychological distress, but not the reverse. Psychological interventions should focus on helping patients cope with treatment as opposed to specifically increasing the chance of pregnancy.

Premature progesterone rise negatively correlated with live birth rate in IVF cycles with GnRH agonist: an analysis of 2,566 cycles

Tuesday, June 12, 2012
This retrospective analysis showed that premature progesterone rise (PPR) impaired in vitro fertilization outcomes in fresh embryo transfer, whereas no negative impact on frozen embryo transfer was observed, implying deleterious effects of PPR on endometrial receptivity.

In vitro fertilization and breast cancer: is there cause for concern?

Friday, June 8, 2012
In this research, young women commencing IVF had a subsequent increased rate of breast cancer compared with women seeking infertility treatment at the same age but not requiring IVF.

Spontaneous pregnancies among couples previously treated by in vitro fertilization

Thursday, June 7, 2012
Among couples previously treated by IVF, one in five has a live birth following a spontaneous pregnancy. This should give hope to unsuccessfully treated couples, especially young couples with unexplained infertility.

The Association between Fertility Clinic Performance and Cycle Volume: Implications for Public Reporting of Provider Performance Data

Thursday, June 7, 2012
This retrospective longitudinal study of U.S. assisted reproductive technology clinics found no association between clinic success rates and cycle volume despite public reporting and patient utilization of clinic performance data.

Ovarian response to stimulation for fertility preservation in women with malignant disease: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Friday, June 1, 2012
Women with malignant disease have a significantly lower oocyte retrieval rate compared with agematched healthy controls; specific malignancy or stage effect on ovarian response to stimulation cannot be assessed.

Serum progesterone level effects on the outcome of in vitro fertilization in patients with different ovarian response: an analysis of more than 10,000 cycles

Wednesday, May 30, 2012
Elevated serum P levels are associated with reduced ongoing pregnancy rates regardless of different ovarian responses. Increased P threshold concentration is associated with better ovarian responses.

Effect of maternal height and weight on risk of preterm birth in singleton and twin births resulting from in vitro fertilization: a retrospective cohort study using the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology Clinic Outcome Reporting System

Friday, May 25, 2012
Overweight significantly increases the risk of very early preterm and very preterm births in twins conceived by IVF.

Vaginal (Crinone 8%) gel vs. intramuscular progesterone in oil for luteal phase support in in vitro fertilization: a large prospective trial

Friday, May 25, 2012
In younger patients undergoing IVF, luteal phase support with vaginal P produces significantly higher pregnancy rates than does IMP. Vaginal P is equally effective as IM in older patients.

CD11c+HLADR+ dendritic cells are present in human ovarian follicular fluid, and their maturity correlates with serum estradiol levels in response to gonadotropins

Wednesday, May 23, 2012
Dendritic cells make up a significant fraction of hematopoietic cells in human follicular fluid. The ovarian response to gonadotropins in in vitro fertilization cycles correlates with the maturity of these cells.

Birth outcomes after spontaneous or assisted conception among infertile Australian women aged 28 to 36 years: a prospective, population-based study

Wednesday, May 23, 2012
More than 40% of Australian women aged 28 to 36 years with a history of infertility can achieve births without using fertility treatment, indicating they are subfertile rather than infertile.

Effects of acupuncture on pregnancy rates in women undergoing in vitro fertilization: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Wednesday, May 23, 2012
We present a systematic review and meta-analysis performed to evaluate the effect of acupuncture on pregnancy rates in women undergoing IVF.

Thyroid function during controlled ovarian hyperstimulation as part of in vitro fertilization

Wednesday, May 23, 2012
We report that ovarian hyperstimulation as part of in vitro fertilization led to significant elevations in TSH, often above pregnancy-appropriate targets. These findings were particularly evident in participants with preexisting hypothyroidism.

Thursday, May 10, 2012
Glutathione peroxidase activity in seminal plasma is related to semen quality but has no relation to in vitro fertilization outcome.

Defective endometrial receptivity

Friday, May 4, 2012
Defective endometrial receptivity is secondary to intrauterine pathology or aberrant development of adhesive properties at the molecular level. Investigation and treatment of endometrial pathology will increase IVF success rates.
