Risk factors for a suboptimal response to gonadotropin releasing hormone agonist trigger during in vitro fertilization cycles
Tuesday, September 1, 2015Risk factors for suboptimal response to gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist-agonist trigger include low luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone on in vitro fertilization cycle start day, low LH on trigger day, history of irregular menses, and long-term oral contraceptive use.
Mild ovarian stimulation with clomiphene citrate launch is a realistic option for in vitro fertilization
Thursday, July 30, 2015Mild stimulation using clomiphene citrate can be considered a realistic option to give patients with a good prognosis an excellent probability of pregnancy in a very short time period.
Exploratory randomized trial on the effect of a brief psychological intervention on emotions, quality of life discontinuation and pregnancy rates in in vitro fertilization patients
Thursday, July 30, 2015A combined cognitive coping and relaxation self help psychological intervention was associated with improved psychological status but not lower treatment discontinuation or higher pregnancy rates.

Monday, June 29, 2015Coculture biopsy in the cycle preceding IVF does not increase implantation, clinical pregnancy, or live birth rates compared with biopsies performed more than one cycle before IVF.
Effect of seminal leukocytes on in vitro fertilization and intracytoplasmic sperm injection outcomes
Monday, June 29, 2015Leukocytospermia (1 106 leukocytes/mL), assessed by flow cytometry, does not significantly influence IVF or ICSI outcomes. The same results were obtained by using lower or higher cut-off values for leukocytospermia (from 0.2 to 2 106/mL).
Are good patient and embryo characteristics protective against the negative effect of elevated progesterone level on the day of oocyte maturation
Monday, June 1, 2015Elevated P level on the day of human chorionic gonadotropin administration negatively affects live-birth rate, regardless of embryo stage, embryo quality, patient age, or ovarian response.
Poor ovarian response in women undergoing in vitro fertilization is associated with altered microRNA expression in cumulus cells
Monday, June 1, 2015We discuss how poor response to controlled ovarian hyperstimulation in in vitro fertilization is associated with altered microRNA expression in cumulus cells.
Neonatal outcomes after early rescue intracytoplasmic sperm injection An analysis of a 5 year period
Monday, June 1, 2015Early rescue intracytoplasmic sperm injection can result in a similar rate of clinical pregnancies when compared with conventional in vitro fertilization/intracytoplasmic sperm injection, as well as delivery of healthy newborns.
Wednesday, April 29, 2015Cryopreserved embryo transfer is a strong predictor of placenta accreta among patients using in vitro fertilization and/or intracytoplasmic sperm injection. This increased risk may be associated with the thinner endometrial linings and lower estradiol levels characteristic of these cycles.
Major drawbacks and additional benefits of agonist trigger Not ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome related
Monday, March 30, 2015High responders and oocyte donors may now be stimulated and triggered with reasonable safety. This paradigm shift confers certain advantages and potential new risks.
Progesterone to follicle index is better correlated with in vitro fertilization cycle outcome than blood progesterone level
Friday, February 27, 2015The progesterone-to-follicle index has a linear and inverse relationship to cycle outcome, unlike blood progesterone, which is detrimental only at high levels.
Frozen thawed day 5 blastocyst transfer is associated with a lower risk of ectopic pregnancy than day 3 transfer and fresh transfer
Friday, February 27, 2015Frozen-thawed day 5 blastocyst transfer is associated with a lower ectopic pregnancy rate than frozen- thawed day 3 transfer and fresh transfer in patients undergoing IVF-ET.
Blastocyst transfer is not associated with increased rates of monozygotic twins when controlling for embryo cohort quality
Monday, December 29, 2014The association between blastocyst transfer and monozygotic twinning may be related to the high quality nature of the embryo cohort rather than the extended culture.
