In most instances, 200 to 500 base pairs of sequence define a Sequence Tagged Site (STS) that is operationally unique in the human genome (i.e., can be specifically detected by the polymerase chain reaction in the presence of all other genomic sequences). The overwhelming advantage of STSs over mapping landmarks defined in other ways is that the means of testing for the presence of a particular STS can be completely described as information in a database.
Vaccines or candidate vaccines used to prevent conception.
A genetic rearrangement through loss of segments of DNA or RNA, bringing sequences which are normally separated into close proximity. This deletion may be detected using cytogenetic techniques and can also be inferred from the phenotype, indicating a deletion at one specific locus.
The total number of cases of a given disease in a specified population at a designated time. It is differentiated from INCIDENCE, which refers to the number of new cases in the population at a given time.
Surgery performed on the female genitalia.
The sexual functions, activities, attitudes, and orientations of an individual. Sexuality, male or female, becomes evident at PUBERTY under the influence of gonadal steroids (TESTOSTERONE or ESTRADIOL), and social effects.
The excretory duct of the testes that carries SPERMATOZOA. It rises from the SCROTUM and joins the SEMINAL VESICLES to form the ejaculatory duct.
Formation of an artificial opening in a fallopian tube.
A cutaneous pouch of skin containing the testicles and spermatic cords.
Any detectable and heritable change in the genetic material that causes a change in the GENOTYPE and which is transmitted to daughter cells and to succeeding generations.
Chemical substances having a specific regulatory effect on the activity of a certain organ or organs. The term was originally applied to substances secreted by various ENDOCRINE GLANDS and transported in the bloodstream to the target organs. It is sometimes extended to include those substances that are not produced by the endocrine glands but that have similar effects.
Evaluation undertaken to assess the results or consequences of management and procedures used in combating disease in order to determine the efficacy, effectiveness, safety, and practicability of these interventions in individual cases or series.
The male reproductive organs. They are divided into the external organs (PENIS; SCROTUM;and URETHRA) and the internal organs (TESTIS; EPIDIDYMIS; VAS DEFERENS; SEMINAL VESICLES; EJACULATORY DUCTS; PROSTATE; and BULBOURETHRAL GLANDS).
The premature cessation of menses (MENSTRUATION) when the last menstrual period occurs in a woman under the age of 40. It is due to the depletion of OVARIAN FOLLICLES. Premature MENOPAUSE can be caused by diseases; OVARIECTOMY; RADIATION; chemicals; and chromosomal abnormalities.
Procedures to reverse the effect of REPRODUCTIVE STERILIZATION and to regain fertility. Reversal procedures include those used to restore the flow in the FALLOPIAN TUBE or the VAS DEFERENS.
Utilization or disposal of an embryo that is fertilized but not immediately transplanted and resulting course of action.
The major progestational steroid that is secreted primarily by the CORPUS LUTEUM and the PLACENTA. Progesterone acts on the UTERUS, the MAMMARY GLANDS and the BRAIN. It is required in EMBRYO IMPLANTATION; PREGNANCY maintenance, and the development of mammary tissue for MILK production. Progesterone, converted from PREGNENOLONE, also serves as an intermediate in the biosynthesis of GONADAL STEROID HORMONES and adrenal CORTICOSTEROIDS.
Genes that are located on the Y CHROMOSOME.
In vitro method for producing large amounts of specific DNA or RNA fragments of defined length and sequence from small amounts of short oligonucleotide flanking sequences (primers). The essential steps include thermal denaturation of the double-stranded target molecules, annealing of the primers to their complementary sequences, and extension of the annealed primers by enzymatic synthesis with DNA polymerase. The reaction is efficient, specific, and extremely sensitive. Uses for the reaction include disease diagnosis, detection of difficult-to-isolate pathogens, mutation analysis, genetic testing, DNA sequencing, and analyzing evolutionary relationships.
A slightly alkaline secretion of the endocervical glands. The consistency and amount are dependent on the physiological hormone changes in the menstrual cycle. It contains the glycoprotein mucin, amino acids, sugar, enzymes, and electrolytes, with a water content up to 90%. The mucus is a useful protection against the ascent of bacteria and sperm into the uterus. (From Dictionary of Obstetrics and Gynecology, 1988)

Recombinant follicle stimulating hormone: development of the first biotechnology product for the treatment of infertility. Recombinant Human FSH Product Development Group. (1/1211)

Genes encoding the common gonadotrophin alpha subunit and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH)-specific beta subunit were isolated from a DNA library derived from human fetal liver cells, and inserted into separate expression vectors containing a selectable/amplifiable gene. These vectors were inserted into the genome of the Chinese hamster ovary cell line, resulting in expression of large amounts of biologically active human (h)FSH. This cell line was cultured on microcarrier beads in a large-scale bioreactor. hFSH in the cell culture supernatant was purified to homogeneity by a multistep process. The mature beta subunit had seven fewer amino acid residues than reported in the literature and three other differences were found in the sequence. Similar oligosaccharide structures were present on recombinant (r)-hFSH and a purified urinary (u)-hFSH preparation. In-vitro and in-vivo, the biological activities of u- and r-hFSH were indistinguishable. r-hFSH was formulated in ampoules containing 75 IU FSH activity (approximately 7.5 microg FSH), which accounts for >99% of the protein content of the preparation. Studies in non-human primates and human volunteers showed the pharmacokinetics of u- and r-hFSH to be similar. In healthy volunteers, r-hFSH stimulated follicular development and induced significant increases in serum oestradiol and inhibin. Clinical experience with r-hFSH has shown it is more effective at stimulating ovarian follicle growth than urinary gonadotrophins. It is also effective at initiating spermatogenesis when given together with human chorionic gonadotrophin.  (+info)

The clinical efficacy of low-dose step-up follicle stimulating hormone administration for treatment of unexplained infertility. (2/1211)

The present study was designed to compare the clinical efficacy of low-dose step-up follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) administration with conventional FSH protocol (FSH was injected daily starting with a dose of 150 IU), both combined with intrauterine insemination (IUI), for the treatment of unexplained infertility. A total of 97 unexplained infertility couples was randomly assigned to one or other of the two treatment groups, either conventional FSH with IUI (48 patients) or low-dose step-up FSH with IUI (49 patients), and only the first treatment cycle was evaluated in each protocol. The difference in pregnancy rates per cycle was not statistically significant between the low-dose FSH group and the conventional group [seven of 49 (14.3%) and seven of 48 (14.6%) respectively]. A significant reduction in the incidence of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) was observed in the low-dose group (8.3% versus 27.1%, P < 0.05). The incidence of moderate OHSS requiring hospitalization was reduced significantly in the low-dose group (low-dose 0% versus conventional 16.7%, P < 0.01). However, the low-dose protocol did not completely prevent multiple pregnancies. Our results suggest that the low-dose step-up FSH treatment appeared to be useful for the treatment of unexplained infertility because of the high pregnancy rates and the significant decrease in the incidence of OHSS.  (+info)

Infertility services and managed care. (3/1211)

The birth of the McCaughey septuplets in Iowa in November 1997 brought issues of fertility assistance and their potential outcomes to worldwide attention. This Pergonal-stimulated multiple pregnancy ended successfully, but not without health hurdles and economic consequences for the new siblings and their family. This article reviews the general situation surrounding infertility services and, within the current debate of epidemiological, economic, legal and social issues, posits that managed care may be able to make greater strides than the present fee-for-service system in providing more accessible and comprehensive care to the 5.3 million US citizens at risk for infertility. Our conclusions suggest that managed care plans for infertility can aid in assuring quality and decreasing unnecessary costs. Managed care organizations should take the lead in providing infertile couples with an organized, humanistic approach that is mindful of the attending social issues. On May 5, 1997, a US District court in Chicago ruled that infertility fits the definition of a disability, and thus is subject to the antidiscrimination enforcement under the Americans with Disabilities Act.  (+info)

Parentage testing implications of male fertility after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation. (4/1211)

Fertility is expected to be reduced after the extensive chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy that is needed for conditioning prior to bone marrow transplantation. However, a male patient can be fertile, and in very rare situations such as reported here, this may confuse subsequent paternity testing. The patient, initially excluded as the biological father by red cell types but not by HLA, was subsequently included after the history of his previous marrow transplant was revealed, a review of the HLA results and further RFLP testing on buccal mucosal cells. This case points to the need for good history taking before performing paternity testing.  (+info)

Effects of mutations in DNA repair genes on formation of ribosomal DNA circles and life span in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. (5/1211)

A cause of aging in Saccharomyces cerevisiae is the accumulation of extrachromosomal ribosomal DNA circles (ERCs). Introduction of an ERC into young mother cells shortens life span and accelerates the onset of age-associated sterility. It is important to understand the process by which ERCs are generated. Here, we demonstrate that homologous recombination is necessary for ERC formation. rad52 mutant cells, defective in DNA repair through homologous recombination, do not accumulate ERCs with age, and mutations in other genes of the RAD52 class have varying effects on ERC formation. rad52 mutation leads to a progressive delocalization of Sir3p from telomeres to other nuclear sites with age and, surprisingly, shortens life span. We speculate that spontaneous DNA damage, perhaps double-strand breaks, causes lethality in mutants of the RAD52 class and may be an initial step of aging in wild-type cells.  (+info)

The Caenorhabditis elegans mel-11 myosin phosphatase regulatory subunit affects tissue contraction in the somatic gonad and the embryonic epidermis and genetically interacts with the Rac signaling pathway. (6/1211)

Caenorhabditis elegans embryonic elongation is driven by cell shape changes that cause a contraction of the epidermal cell layer enclosing the embryo. We have previously shown that this process requires a Rho-associated kinase (LET-502) and is opposed by the activity of a myosin phosphatase regulatory subunit (MEL-11). We now extend our characterization and show that mel-11 activity is required both in the epidermis during embryonic elongation and in the spermatheca of the adult somatic gonad. let-502 and mel-11 reporter gene constructs show reciprocal expression patterns in the embryonic epidermis and the spermatheca, and mutations of the two genes have opposite effects in these two tissues. These results are consistent with let-502 and mel-11 mediating tissue contraction and relaxation, respectively. We also find that mel-11 embryonic inviability is genetically enhanced by mutations in a Rac signaling pathway, suggesting that Rac potentiates or acts in parallel with the activity of the myosin phosphatase complex. Since Rho has been implicated in promoting cellular contraction, our results support a mechanism by which epithelial morphogenesis is regulated by the counteracting activities of Rho and Rac.  (+info)

How concordant are the estimated rates of natural conception and in-vitro fertilization/embryo transfer success? (7/1211)

Knowledge of the chance to conceive for the subfertile couple is important in the process of counselling and clinical decision making. There are no data available on the reproducibility of the clinician's ability to assess the chance to conceive, both after expectant management or treatment with in-vitro fertilization and embryo transfer (IVF-embryo transfer). We evaluated this reproducibility by means of a set of case histories presented to a panel of gynaecologists and endocrinologists. A poor reproducibility would indicate a strong need for the use of prognostic models. In 1995, 57 gynaecologists and 32 reproductive endocrinologists were asked to appraise the 1 year spontaneous conception chance as well as the cumulative success rate of three cycles for IVF-embryo transfer of four couples with different medical histories. The clinical and laboratory data of these couples were presented as case histories. The difference between the estimated spontaneous pregnancy chances and the success rate of IVF-embryo transfer was also calculated. Calculation of intra-class correlation coefficients, which can be considered as measures of the reproducibility, demonstrated a substantial reproducibility of the assessment of spontaneous conception chances, but a slight to fair reproducibility of the assessment of IVF-embryo transfer success rates. We conclude that the use of reliable prognostic models for IVF-embryo transfer in the management of subfertility is warranted.  (+info)

Intrauterine insemination treatment in subfertility: an analysis of factors affecting outcome. (8/1211)

A total of 811 intrauterine insemination (IUI) cycles in which clomiphene citrate/human menopausal gonadotrophin (HMG) was used for ovarian stimulation were analysed retrospectively to identify prognostic factors regarding treatment outcome. The overall pregnancy rate was 12.6% per cycle, the multiple pregnancy rate 13.7%, and the miscarriage rate 23.5%. Logistic regression analysis revealed five predictive variables as regards pregnancy: number of the treatment cycle (P = 0.009), duration of infertility (P = 0.017), age (P = 0.028), number of follicles (P = 0.031) and infertility aetiology (P = 0.045). The odds ratios for age < 40 years, unexplained infertility aetiology (versus endometriosis) and duration of infertility < or = 6 years were 3.24, 2.79 and 2.33, respectively. A multifollicular ovarian response to clomiphene citrate/HMG resulted in better treatment success than a monofollicular response, and 97% of the pregnancies were obtained in the first four treatment cycles. The results indicate that clomiphene citrate/HMG/IUI is a useful and cost-effective treatment option in women < 40 years of age with infertility duration < or = 6 years, who do not suffer from endometriosis.  (+info)

Kamphuis and colleagues analysed the overuse of IVF treatment focusing on the newer indications such as unexplained subfertility where evidence is sparse.1There is no doubt of an increase in the incidence of unexplained subfertility as an indication for IVF, but it would be pertinent to ask the question why is this so? With the cited incidences being especially based on registries from Western countries, one of the most likely reason for the increase in unexplained causes is the increase in female childbearing age2&3 and ovarian senescence in these older women presenting as unexplained subfertility.4. Since the beginning of IVF registries there has been a gradual increase in the mean age of women seeking IVF treatment.5&6 There has been a parallel increase in the proportion of older women seeking IVF treatment5&6 and in the proportion of IVF cycles being offered for unexplained subfertility as correctly pointed out by the authors.1. Human biology dictates conception which has a negative ...

Downloadable (with restrictions)! Over the last several decades, both delay of childbearing and fertility problems have become increasingly common among women in developed countries. At the same time, technological changes have made many more options available to individuals experiencing fertility problems. However, these technologies are expensive, and only 25% of health care plans in the United States cover infertility treatment. As a result of these high costs, legislation has been passed in 15 states that mandates insurance coverage of infertility treatment in private insurance plans. In this paper, we examine whether mandated insurance coverage for infertility treatment affects utilization for a specific subgroup in the population: older, highly educated women. These women are both at high risk for fertility problems, and have high rates of coverage by insurance plans affected by the mandates. We find robust evidence that while an effect of the mandates on utilization can not be found for the full

The causes of infertility discussed above are rooted in the Western, bio-medical paradigm and it is important to understand that infertility is understood differently in each sociocultural context in which it is experienced. Traditional knowledge in Anglophone Africa acknowledges both male and female causes of infertility, however in patriarchal societies men are protected and women are almost always blamed for involuntary childlessness. In Tanzania, for example, medical treatment for infertility is often delayed or precluded in favour of traditional and religious treatments because evil forces are often thought to be the cause of infertility. In Latin America, strong social stigma is attached to infertility and machismo attitudes create a dynamics where women blame themselves for infertility. In the Far East, Confucian texts recognize three elements that control reproduction, a male component, a female and an element with comes from both male and female. Infertility however is usually blamed on ...
When are Infertility Treatments the correct procedure? What causes infertility and what are the potential consequences of Infertility Treatments?
Investigations. The couple should start investigations 12 months after trying to conceive. If the female partner is more than 35years old, her fertility might be low.. Because there is a correlation between hormone levels and fertility, hormone levels should be investigated.. Sperm health should be investigated as it is also a major cause of infertility. Female factors like patency of the fallopian tubes, and ovarian hormone levels. Levels of follicle stimulating hormone, lutenizing hormone and progesterone should be tested. These hormones levels should checked whether they vary from the expected levels in the menstrual cycle. If the couple had done some previous test, have a look at the tests.. For a woman with chronic anovulation, presenting with hirsutism (male pattern hair) test for serum levels of androgens and find the source of excess androgens.

Infertility primarily refers to the biological inability of a person to contribute to conception. Infertility may also refer to the state of a woman who is unable to carry a pregnancy to full term. There are many biological causes of infertility, some which may be bypassed with medical intervention as well. Infertility can be treated with medicine, surgery, artificial insemination, or assisted reproductive technology, though it often creates one of the most distressing life crises that an infertile couple can ever experience together. Many times these treatments are combined and in most cases infertility is treated with drugs or surgery. Doctors recommend specific treatments for infertility based on: test results, how long the couple has been trying to get pregnant the, age of the man and woman, the overall health of the partners, preference of the partners Infertility or sub fertility is no more a personal problem. Due to pollution and life style changes, infertility has become a common health ...
Yes, a lot of studies suggest that the diagnosis of infertility does lead to stress, anxiety and depression in a lot of couples. Research has shown that infertile couples are more stressed when compared with a matched sample of fertile couples. Some infertile couples describe the experience of infertility to be as stressful as the experience of divorce or the death of a loved one.. Consider the situation. When a couple is unable to conceive, facing family and societal pressures to have a baby, the pressures sometimes could be silent ones, the couple faces self-doubt, and society frequently fails to realize how much grief childlessness can carry. Being infertile is not a dangerous medical condition, but it is a struggle to build a family, to fulfill a dream and to be happy.Such circumstances can be stressful for the couple experiencing infertility.. ...

Background: Unnecessary treatment of thyroid cancer as a result of increased surveillance may be associated with substantial side effects, including infertility, often without improvements in survival rates. Objective: To examine the association between thyroid cancer treatment and subsequent infertility diagnosis. Study Design: Population-based cohort study of female Adolescent and Young Adults (AYAs, 15-39 years) who have been treated for thyroid cancer between 1992 and 2011 in Ontario and lived at least 5 years after cancer diagnosis. Exposure data were obtained through the CIHI/DAD, which was linked to several health care data sources through ICES. Thyroid cancer treatment, from less invasive to more aggressive, was categorized as: less than total thyroidectomy-LTT, total thyroidectomy-TOT, or TOT accompanied with radioactive iodine therapy-TOT+RAI. Women were followed in the cohort until December 31, 2016. Infertility diagnosis was identified using information on physician billed claims ...

In 2014, nearly 15% of the Indian population, both male and female, were infertile, according to statistics. Factors like working style can cause infertility in both men and women who live in the city. In men, infertility is predominantly due to inebriation, lifestyle and environment, where as in women, disorders like polycystic ovaries or PCD are the major cause for infertility.. A common misconception is virile men are fertile. There is no correlation between fertility and virility. Another common misconception is that a mismatch between the blood groups of a couple trying to have a baby, can cause infertility. Experts say, another reason why infertility is on the raise in women today, is because they are waiting until older to have a baby now more than ever. However infertility can be a problem for any woman, whether she is young or old, single or married.. Some of the main reasons apart from stress and unhealthy lifestyle habits are not ovulating; blocked fallopian tubes; poor egg ...
This is a randomized clinical trial to evaluate the efficacy, adverse events, and particularly cost and cost-effectiveness of two alternative infertility treatment strategies for patients who would otherwise be candidates for ovulation induction and IUI as their initial treatment. The two therapies compared are conventional treatment and fast track to IVF. Conventional therapy is a cost-conscious progressive treatment strategy that begins with the least invasive form of ovulation induction, clomiphene/IUI. It then progresses to FSH/IUI and, if pregnancy is not achieved, to IVF. The fast track to IVF strategy begins with clomiphene/IUI; if pregnancy does not result, these patients bypass FSH/IUI and move directly to IVF. We hypothesize that the fast track to IVF therapy results in a higher pregnancy rate, lower rates of medical complications during treatment, lower rates of pregnancy complications, and costs no more than conventional infertility treatment.. The trial has the following specific ...

In the UK the odds of having a live birth from IVF average about 25 per cent, depending on age and other factors, and in 2013 nearly 50,000 British women had fertility treatment in both private and NHS clinics, the resulting children accounting for two per cent of all births. The National Institute of Clinical Excellence (Nice) recommends that couples in which the woman is under 40 should get three free cycles of IVF. But a post code lottery for fertility treatment on the NHS forces many UK couples down the private route. Susan Seenan, the chief executive of the charity Infertility Network (IN), said, If you live in one area you might get one cycle of IVF only, and if you picked yourself up and moved post code by only 10 miles, you might get three full cycles on the NHS. The price of private fertility treatment in the UK is high, she explained, so UK couples are often forced to go abroad, where it can be more affordable.. Indeed, an online survey by the IN found that the reasons couples travel ...

Although 10% of infertile couples are diagnosed with unexplained infertility, infertility is generally diagnosed when conception does not occur after one year of unprotected intercourse. Where the woman is in her 30s or older, the diagnosis of infertility is usually made once a couple has been trying to become pregnant for only six months. This decision is based on the fact that a womans reproductive potential declines after the age of 35.. Unexplained means that, at the time of diagnosis, a conventional battery of fertility tests for both partners has failed to reveal a cause for infertility.. ...

Dr. is skilled to perform Infertility Work up, Infertility Counseling and Infertility Management in couples having all types of Infertility (Male, female and Unexplained). Many of his patients have experienced the joy of parenthood after long periods of Infertility. After his treatment, many couples with infertility problems like PCOS (Polycyctic Ovaries), Fibroids, Endometriosis conceived naturally after drug treatment, ovulation induction, surgery (laparoscopy, hysteroscopy in some cases) and in some advanced cases conception was possible by IUI (Intrauterine Insemination) and IVF (In vitro Fertilization- test tube baby). Many of his patients with low sperm counts are enjoying parethood after successful drug treatment, IUI and IVF. He continued his care to these couples throughout the pregnancy till delivery and afterwards. To give few examples- one patient with severe endometriosis, who refused surgery, conceived naturally after 3 months of injection therapy. Another patients with very low ...
Since the identification of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) in the 1980s, there have been significant advances made in the management and long-term prognosis for infected individuals. Currently, with the advent of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART), HIV-positive individuals may live a healthy and productive life for years to decades after diagnosis. As life expectancy has increased, this group of people has begun to engage in family planning. This has created a need for access to advanced reproductive technologies and fertility treatments. While attempting to achieve pregnancy, utilization of these services can help to minimize the risk of transmission in serodiscordant couples, and can allow treatment of subfertile couples. Access to these services may be limited in Ontario for a variety of reasons. The purpose of this study is to determine the access to infertility clinics and services in Ontario for couples in which one or ...

Infertility….. I am sure that you all know someone who has been affected or you have been affected by infertility. April 23-29 2017 is Infertility Awareness Week. To give you an idea of just how many are affected, here are some staggering statistics regarding infertility. 7.4 million women, or 11.9% of women, have ever received any infertility services in their lifetime. (2006-2010 National Survey of Family Growth, CDC). 1 in 8 couples (or 12% of married women) have trouble getting pregnant or sustaining a pregnancy. (2006-2010 National Survey of Family Growth, CDC). Approximately one-third of infertility is attributed to the female partner, one-third attributed to the male partner and one-third is caused by a combination of problems in both partners or, is unexplained.

The infertility is not a disease - it is a consequence of a breach in the body. May be due to improper development or disease of the reproductive system of one of the partners, endocrine disease, mental or neurological disease. The infertility is a problem of both sexes, so it is incorrect to say that the inability to conceive is the only woman. According to the statistics the infertility in women and men is virtually identical. Sometimes the cause is and sexual incompatibility, so it is sometimes enough to change the partner and children to come. Experts advise when doing research for infertility, such be subjected to both partners to be able to find the cause of infertility and to rectify the problem (if possible) early on. For infertile couples are considered one in which several years of regular intercourse without using contraception, a woman is not pregnant. According to research, even if it does not cause infertility, though some couples do not get to have kids. It is possible to cause ...

University of Iowa News. Feb. 23, 2006. UI-Designed Tool Helps Doctors Tailor Infertility Treatments For Couples. Physicians must consider a number of variables when treating couples who cannot naturally conceive because of factors involving both the woman and man. However, a new tool developed at the University of Iowa helps experts better predict outcomes and choose the treatment method that is most likely to help the couple achieve pregnancy.. The model applies when a womans own eggs can be used for an advanced form of in vitro fertilization (IVF), intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), in which a single sperm cell is injected into the females egg. The model takes into consideration the womans age, factors that cause the mans infertility, the choice of three different sperm retrieval methods and the choice of using fresh or frozen sperm. The computational model was created by Moshe Wald, M.D., assistant professor of urology in the UI Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine, and ...
Infertility is a problem that confronts one in six to seven of couples hoping to have children. Roughly a third of all cases of limited fertility or complete infertility are attributable to the female or the male partner, while up to 40% cases are due to disorders in both partners. Involuntary childlessness can be a result of genetic factors, disorders of endocrine regulatory circuits or abnormalities and diseases of the genital organs. Equally relevant factors are infections and environmental influences, including lifestyle and nutrition. In view of the shift in the reproductive phase, age is also becoming an increasingly critical factor. In 10-20% of all cases it is not possible to pinpoint the cause. In veterinary medicine, reproductive biotechnologies and assisted reproductive technologies are used to increase the progress in breeding, not to treat infertility. Research is needed to answer specific veterinary challenges on the one hand, and on the other hand the bovine embryo plays an ...
In the US, up to 20% of infertile couples have unexplained infertility. In these cases abnormalities are likely to be present but not detected by current methods. Possible problems could be that the egg is not released at the optimum time for fertilization, that it may not enter the fallopian tube, sperm may not be able to reach the egg, fertilization may fail to occur, transport of the zygote may be disturbed, or implantation fails. It is increasingly recognized that egg quality is of critical importance and women of advanced maternal age have eggs of reduced capacity for normal and successful fertilization. Also, polymorphisms in folate pathway genes could be one reason for fertility complications in some women with unexplained infertility.[59] However, a growing body of evidence suggests that epigenetic modifications in sperm may be partially responsible.[60][61] ...

Children conceived via infertility treatments are no more likely to have a developmental delay than children conceived without such treatments, according to a study by researchers at the National Institutes of Health, the New York State Department of Health and other institutions.

Intended parents might seek assistance through IVF scholarships or by traveling for treatment, but no U.S. tax credit is currently in place to help reduce the financial burden of fertility treatments.

Infertility in Men. Infertility is the medical term for a couples inability to become pregnant after one year of sexual intercourse.

Downloadable! Beyond natural sterility, there are two main types of childlessness: one driven by poverty and another by the high opportunity cost to child-rearing. We argue that taking childlessness and its causes into account matters for assessing the impact of development policies on fertility. We measure the importance of the components of childlessness with a structural model of fertility and marriage. Deep parameters are identified using census data from 36 developing countries. On average, one more year of education decreases poverty-driven childlessness by 0.75 percentage points, but increases opportunity-cost-driven childlessness by 0.57 percentage points from the 9th year of schooling onwards. Neglecting the endogenous response of marriage and childlessness leads to overestimating the effectiveness of family planning policies, except where highly educated mothers are also heavily affected by unwanted births, and to underestimating the effect of promoting gender equality on fertility, except in

Although most men with male ...

The following examples tell you how clinicians take a pragmatic approach whilst managing cases of unexplained infertility.. In unexplained infertility, if we know that there will be some hidden cause, why dont we continue investigating until we know the answer?. As purists all fertility experts would like to go to the root cause of the infertility and conduct as many tests as possible to find out whats the problem. However we have to be pragmatic about this and look at the cost-benefit ratio of continuing investigations to find out unusual or less common causes. Most often clinicians takes the practical pragmatic approach of getting on with the treatment which covers many factors and corrects them even without being sure that they need correction. Lets take a few examples on the limitations of investigations and the reason for starting treatment before you are 100% sure about the cause.. Pragmatism Rules. Example 1. The fallopian tube is where the egg meets a sperm to make a baby. We ...

Researchers in Argentina report that women with multiple sclerosis (MS) who undergo assisted reproduction technology (ART) infertility treatment are at risk for increased disease activity. Study findings published in Annals of Neurology, a journal of the American Neurological Association and Child Neurology Society, suggest reproductive hormones contribute to regulation of immune responses in autoimmune diseases such as MS.. According to a 2006 report from the World Health Organization (WHO), MS affects 2.5 million individuals worldwide and is more common among women than men. While previous research found that up to 20% of couples in Western countries experience infertility, women with MS typically do not have diminished fertility except in those treated with cyclophosphamide or high-dose corticosteroids. Medical evidence shows sex hormones and those involved in ovulation (gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRH)) play an important role in the development of autoimmune disorders.. When MS and ...
Demographers tend to define infertility as childlessness in a population of women of reproductive age, whereas the epidemiological definition refers to trying for or time to a pregnancy, generally in a population of women exposed to a probability of conception.[8] Currently, female fertility normally peaks at age 24 and diminishes after 30, with pregnancy occurring rarely after age 50.[9] A female is most fertile within 24 hours of ovulation.[9] Male fertility peaks usually at age 25 and declines after age 40.[9] The time needed to pass (during which the couple tries to conceive) for that couple to be diagnosed with infertility differs between different jurisdictions. Existing definitions of infertility lack uniformity, rendering comparisons in prevalence between countries or over time problematic. Therefore, data estimating the prevalence of infertility cited by various sources differs significantly.[8] A couple that tries unsuccessfully to have a child after a certain period of time ...

Abnormal uterine bleeding is a general category that includes any bleeding from menstrual or nonmenstrual causes. Hypomenorrhea is abnormally light menstrual periods. Menorrhagia (meno = prolonged,[2] rrhagia = excessive flow/discharge) is an abnormally heavy and prolonged menstrual period. Metrorrhagia is bleeding at irregular times, especially outside the expected intervals of the menstrual cycle. If there is excessive menstrual and uterine bleeding other than that caused by menstruation, menometrorrhagia (meno = prolonged, metro = time, rrhagia = excessive flow/discharge) may be diagnosed. Causes may be due to abnormal blood clotting, disruption of normal hormonal regulation of periods or disorders of the endometrial lining of the uterus. Depending upon the cause, it may be associated with abnormally painful periods. ...

... (BV) is a disease of the vagina caused by excessive growth of bacteria.[6][9] Common symptoms include increased vaginal discharge that often smells like fish.[2] The discharge is usually white or gray in color.[2] Burning with urination may occur.[2] Itching is uncommon.[2][6] Occasionally, there may be no symptoms.[2] Having BV approximately doubles the risk of infection by a number of sexually transmitted infections, including HIV/AIDS.[8][10] It also increases the risk of early delivery among pregnant women.[3][11] BV is caused by an imbalance of the naturally occurring bacteria in the vagina.[4][5] There is a change in the most common type of bacteria and a hundred to thousandfold increase in total numbers of bacteria present.[6] Typically, bacteria other than Lactobacilli become more common.[12] Risk factors include douching, new or multiple sex partners, antibiotics, and using an intrauterine device, among others.[5] However, it is not considered a sexually transmitted ...
Women who experience pain with attempted intercourse describe their pain in many ways. This reflects how many different and overlapping causes there are for dyspareunia.[2] The location, nature, and time course of the pain help to understand potential causes and treatments. Some women describe superficial pain at the opening of the vagina or surface of the genitalia when penetration is initiated. Other women feel deeper pain in the vault of the vagina or deep within the pelvis upon deeper penetration. Some women feel pain in more than one of these places. Determining whether the pain is more superficial or deep is important in understanding what may be causing a woman's pain.[3] Some women have always experienced pain with intercourse from their very first attempt. Other women begin to feel pain with intercourse after an injury or infection or cyclically with menstruation. Sometimes the pain increases over time. When pain occurs, the woman may be distracted from feeling pleasure and excitement. ...
Where an underlying cause can be identified, treatment may be directed at this. Clearly heavy periods at menarche and menopause may settle spontaneously (the menarche being the start and menopause being the cessation of periods). If the degree of bleeding is mild, all that may be sought by the woman is the reassurance that there is no sinister underlying cause. If anemia occurs due to bleeding then iron tablets may be used to help restore normal hemoglobin levels.[1] The first line treatment option for women with HMB and no identified pathology, fibroids less than 3 cm in diameter, suspected or confirmed adenomyosis is the levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system (LNG-IUS).[11] Clinical trial evidence suggests that the LNG-IUS may be better than other medical therapy in terms of HMB and quality of life.[14] Usually, oral combined contraceptive or progesterone only pills may be taken for a few months, but for longer-term treatment the alternatives of injected Depo Provera or the more recent ...
