Background: Historically, to achieve higher pregnancy rates, multiple embryos were transferred after an in-vitro fertilisation (IVF). However, this practice is being reassessed, because it leads to multiple pregnancies that is known to cause adverse maternal and fetal outcomes. Aim: To compare the pregnancy outcomes in fresh IVF or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) cycles among women undergoing elective single blastocyst transfer (eSBT) vs. those undergoing double blastocyst transfer (DBT)...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Ovulation induction has been proven to impose oxidative stress during ICSI treatment cycle. Also, data indicates that PCOS women show higher oxidative markers. Available data are not convincing about which antioxidant supplements have the potential to overcome oxidative stress in PCOS subjects. The aim of this trial was to investigate the possible role of combined vitamin E and D supplementation in the ICSI outcomes (oocyte number and quality, embryo number and quality, pregnancy rate) of PCOS subjects...

OBJECTIVES: The objectives of this study were to assess (1) the expected cost of a live birth (LB) after in vitro fertilization with two different gonadotropin treatments [high purified human menopausal gonadotropin (HP-hMG) and recombinant follicle-stimulating hormone (rFSH)] as the single cost variable, and (2) the cost effectiveness of HP-hMG relative to rFSH in the context of the routine practice of assisted reproductive technology (ART) in France. METHODS: A Markov model was developed to simulate the therapeutic management, the in vitro fertilization/intracytoplasmic sperm injection (IVF/ICSI) courses, and the effects of complications in hypothetical cohorts of 30,000 patients undergoing IVF/ICSI with fresh embryo transfer (up to four attempts) using data from the MERIT and MEGASET clinical trials or from French routine ART practice...

STUDY QUESTION: Is there a difference in live birth rate and/or cost-effectiveness between antral follicle count (AFC)-based individualized FSH dosing or standard FSH dosing in women starting IVF or ICSI treatment? SUMMARY ANSWER: In women initiating IVF/ICSI, AFC-based individualized FSH dosing does not improve live birth rates or reduce costs as compared to a standard FSH dose. WHAT IS KNOWN ALREADY: In IVF or ICSI, ovarian reserve testing is often used to adjust the FSH dose in order to normalize ovarian response and optimize live birth rates...

STUDY QUESTION: Does an increased FSH dose result in higher cumulative live birth rates in women with a predicted poor ovarian response, apparent from a low antral follicle count (AFC), scheduled for IVF or ICSI? SUMMARY ANSWER: In women with a predicted poor ovarian response (AFC < 11) undergoing IVF/ICSI, an increased FSH dose (225/450 IU/day) does not improve cumulative live birth rates as compared to a standard dose (150 IU/day). WHAT IS KNOWN ALREADY: In women scheduled for IVF/ICSI, an ovarian reserve test (ORT) can predict ovarian response to stimulation...

STUDY QUESTION: Does a reduced FSH dose in women with a predicted hyper response, apparent from a high antral follicle count (AFC), who are scheduled for IVF/ICSI lead to a different outcome with respect to cumulative live birth rate and safety? SUMMARY ANSWER: Although in women with a predicted hyper response (AFC > 15) undergoing IVF/ICSI a reduced FSH dose (100 IU per day) results in similar cumulative live birth rates and a lower occurrence of any grade of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) as compared to a standard dose (150 IU/day), a higher first cycle cancellation rate and similar severe OHSS rate were observed...

OBJECTIVES: Preterm birth (PTB) is more common among in-vitro fertilization (IVF) as compared to natural conception. However, the extent to which this it due to spontaneous labour or to iatrogenic indications has not been determined. This study quantifies the risk of spontaneous preterm birth (SPTB) in singleton pregnancies resulting from IVF as compared to spontaneous conception. METHODS: Web-based databases search (PubMed/Medline, Scopus, Web of Science) up to September 2017 identified articles comparing the risk of SPTB in singleton IVF/ICSI and naturally conceived pregnancies...

In recent years, one of the methods of assisted reproductive technologies has become increasingly widespread, namely the ICSI procedure (ICSI - Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection). This method is based on artificial introduction of the spermatozoon into the cytoplasm of the oocyte. However, the complexity of this method is that the choice of a morphologically and biochemically mature spermatozoon becomes subjective. However, not so long ago, an innovative method for selecting mature, ready-to-fertilize spermatozoa was proposed...

BACKGROUND: Miscarriage is a common complication in pregnancy and there is still a lack of biomarkers usable in asymptomatic patients before the event occurs. Periostin (PER), whose levels rise particularly during injury or inflammation, has been shown to play an important local role in implantation and early embryonic development. As PER has been described as a biomarker in various medical conditions we intended to evaluate if changes in PER serum levels may help to identify women at risk for spontaneous abortion in the first trimester...

BACKGROUND: Gonadotropins are the most commonly used medications for controlled ovarian stimulation in in vitro fertilisation (IVF). However, they are expensive and invasive, and are associated with the risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). Recent calls for more patient-friendly regimens have led to growing interest in the use of clomiphene citrate (CC) and aromatase inhibitors with or without gonadotropins to reduce the burden of hormonal injections. It is currently unknown whether regimens using CC or aromatase inhibitors such as letrozole (Ltz) are as effective as gonadotropins alone...

Many premenopausal patients who develop breast cancer have not yet completed their family planning, so measures of fertility protection to preserve their fertile potential would be beneficial. Polychemotherapy causes irreversible damage to the ovarian follicles - irrespective of whether in a neoadjuvant or adjuvant setting - and this can sometimes result in permanent infertility. Depending on which cytostatic agents are used and on the age-related ovarian reserve of the woman, gonadotoxic risk must be classified as low, moderate or high...

BACKGROUND: Sperm DNA fragmentation (SDF) testing has been recognized as a valuable tool in the evaluation of infertile men. Despite that, its routine use in clinical practice is still hampered by the lack of understanding of the specific clinical scenarios where SDF testing is most beneficial. The aim of this study was to investigate fertility specialists evaluation of infertility of SDF testing in the context of male infertility evaluation and assisted reproductive technology. METHODS: A questionnaire was developed to survey the major aspects of SDF testing and was mailed to specialists with demonstrated clinical experience in the field of infertility...
