BACKGROUND: Selecting the best embryo for transfer, with the highest chance of achieving a vital pregnancy, is a major goal in current in vitro fertilization (IVF) technology. The high rate of embryonic developmental arrest during IVF treatment is one of the limitations in achieving this goal. Chromosomal abnormalities are possibly linked with chromosomal arrest and selection against abnormal fertilization products. The objective of this study was to evaluate the frequency and type of chromosomal abnormalities in preimplantation embryos with developmental arrest...

Building a family using donated gametes (semen, oocytes or embryos) is associated with specific issues which differ from building a family with gametes from both intended parents, the resulting family comprising separated biological and social parenthood. To respect the welfare of all parties involved, the 'Beratungsnetzwerk Kinderwunsch Deutschland e.V.' (Infertility Counselling Network Germany) has developed guidelines for psychosocial counselling in this area. The following article summarizes international developments and introduces the German guidelines...

BACKGROUND: Infertility may considerably reduce quality-of-life. Many of the existing generic quality-of-life measures, which often focus on physical impairments, do not represent the specific complaints of infertile patients. In this article, we report on the development and validation of the TLMK (Tübinger Lebensqualitätsfragebogen für Männer mit Kinderwunsch), an instrument for measuring quality-of-life in male patients with involuntary childlessness. METHODS: The first version of the questionnaire, which consisted of 91 items, was administered to 275 men who attended andrology and gynaecology clinics for fertility evaluations...

In the context of the etiology of eating disorders it is common to discuss emotional conflicts related to the identification with the female gender role. Based upon this theoretical background this study was designed to examine the attitudes of 46 females suffering from anorexia or bulimia towards their wish to have children. It was assumed that the personal evaluation of motherhood and attitudes towards own children might reflect one important aspect of the identification with the female gender role. The results of this study are based on the "Leipziger Fragebogen zu Kinderwunschmotiven" and the "Leipziger Fragebogen zu Einstellungen zum Kinderwunsch" by Stöbel-Richter and Brähler and suggest that females suffering from eating disorders are more likely to refuse traditional concepts of the female gender role, especially a traditional concept of motherhood...
