Twelve year retrospective review of unintended pregnancies after Essure sterilization in the Netherlands
Friday, April 1, 2016The incidence of pregnancies after sterilization with Essure is low. Most pregnancies were related to nonadherence to placement and follow-up protocols or misinterpretation of confirmation tests, and seem therefore preventable.
Assessing new terminal body and facial hair growth during pregnancy Toward developing a simplified visual scoring system for hirsutism
Monday, February 1, 2016We discuss the distribution and progression of terminal hair growth in pregnant women and determine the feasibility of a simplified scoring system for assessing hirsutism.
Mid pregnancy perinatal and neonatal reproductive endocrinology A prospective cohort study in twins and singleton control subjects
Monday, November 30, 2015Twin children are not overexposed to sex steroids at the time of birth, despite higher concentrations in their mothers. Opposite-sex twin girls do not show androgenic influence from their male co-twins. Boys of an opposite-sex twin have lower LH concentrations compared with same-sex dizygotic twin boys.
Chlamydia trachomatis immunoglobulin G3 seropositivity is a predictor of reproductive outcomes in infertile women with patent fallopian tubes
Monday, November 30, 2015Even in the presence of tubal patency, Chlamydia trachomatis immunoglobulin G3 seropositivity is associated with a lower likelihood of pregnancy and an increased risk of ectopic pregnancy.
Association between previously unknown connective tissue disease and subclinical hypothyroidism diagnosed during first trimester of pregnancy
Thursday, October 29, 2015Connective tissue diseases are associated to autoimmune thyroid disorders in pregnancy. Thyroid autoimmunity and antinuclear antibodies could have a detrimental effect on pregnancy outcomes.
Thursday, October 29, 2015We describe pregnancies in a large group of patients with hypopituitarism, finding that GH replacement is not related to healthy live births, gestational age at delivery, and birth weight.
Beyond infertility Obstetrical and postpartum complications associated with endometriosis and adenomyosis
Tuesday, September 29, 2015During pregnancy, women with endometriosis may undergo severe complications, such as spontaneous hemoperitoneum, and seem to be at higher risk of preterm birth and placenta previa.
