BACKGROUND: Assessment of ovarian reserve is one of the steps in the management of infertile couples. Follicle Stimulating hormone (FSH) and anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) are commonly used ovarian reserve markers in Africa. However, there is paucity of age-specific reference values for FSH and AMH among the African population. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed at conducting a pilot study for generation of age-specific nomograms for FSH and AMH among fertile women in Ile-Ife, Nigeria...

Good-quality oocytes are critical for the success of in vitro fertilization (IVF), but, to date, there is no marker of ovarian reserve available that can accurately predict oocyte quality. Melatonin exerts its antioxidant actions as a strong radical scavenger that might affect oocyte quality directly, since it is the most potent antioxidant in follicular fluid. To investigate the precise role of endogenous melatonin in IVF outcomes, we recruited 61 women undergoing treatment cycles of IVF or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) procedures and classified them into three groups according to their response to ovarian stimulation...

Ultrasound (US) is very useful in diagnosing causes of infertility. Pelvic masses, mullerian anomalies, ovarian reserve, and tubal patency can all be assessed using ultrasonographic techniques. US has also proven to be a very useful aid in managing infertility treatments. In this chapter, we review the uses of US in monitoring follicular development, assessing the endometrium during treatment, and as an aid to embryo transfer during in vitro fertilization.

For migratory species, acquisition and allocation of energy after arrival on the breeding grounds largely determine reproductive decisions. Few studies have investigated underlying physiological mechanisms driving variation in breeding phenology so far. We linked physiological state to individual timing of breeding in pre-laying arctic-nesting female peregrine falcons (Falco peregrinus tundrius). We captured females from two populations 2-20 days before egg-laying to assess plasma concentration of β-hydroxybutyric acid (BUTY) and triglyceride (TRIG), two metabolites known to reflect short-term changes in fasting and fattening rate, respectively...

BACKGROUND: Various ovarian reserve markers have been used to predict ovarian response and pregnancy. However, concerning Chinese population, fewer trials have been performed using the combined ovarian reserve markers to predict ovarian response and pregnancy in GnRH antagonist protocols. METHODS: Data from a total of 373 patients' in vitro fertilization cycles using GnRH antagonist protocol was retrospectively included. According to our center's daily practice, circulating follicle-stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, and estradiol (E2) were tested on menstrual cycle day 2-4 or hCG trigger day, and the concentration of AMH was determined despite of menstrual cycle...

This systematic review compares the effect of suturing and surgical energy utilized for hemostasis during ovarian cystectomies on ovarian function. A search of the Scopus, Embase, and PubMed databases was conducted through December 1(st) 2016 for prospective and retrospective trials as well as Randomized Controlled Trials (RCTs) that analyzed ovarian function following ovarian cystectomies where hemostasis was obtained using suturing vs. surgical energy. Of the twenty-five studies identified, twelve studies, with a total of 1,133 subjects, met the criteria and were included in this review...

Opportunistic salpingectomy (OBS) is gaining momentum as a potential strategy for preventing epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC). OBS has been associated with a 40-65% decrease in the incidence of EOC when performed at the time of benign hysterectomy in patients at population-level risk for EOC. Current data suggests minimal disadvantage or "cost" to the patient and system from this practice in terms of estimated blood loss (EBL), operative time, length of hospital stay, ovarian reserve depletion, and complications attributable to OBS...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate changes of ovarian reserve after hysterectomy by comparing serum anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH) levels following laparoscopic hysterectomy (LH) to those of non-laparoscopic hysterectomy (non-LH). METHODS: Prospectively, serum AMH levels were measured pre-operatively (AMH0), 7days (AMH1), 2 months (AMH2), and 6 months (AMH3) after LH (total laparoscopic hysterectomy or laparoscopy-assisted vaginal hysterectomy) and non-LH (vaginal hysterectomy or abdominal hysterectomy) in 91 premenopausal women (LH=60, non-LH=31)...

AIM: The aim of this study was to evaluate ovarian reserve after laparoscopic ovarian detorsion in patients with ovarian torsion. METHODS: From February 2014 to September 2015, a total of 11 patients with ovarian torsion underwent laparoscopic detorsion. These 11 patients were eligible for study, and ovarian reserve was assessed on serum anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) and by antral follicle count preoperatively, and in postoperative months 1 and 3. RESULTS: Mean patient age was 25...

STUDY QUESTION: Do BRCA1/2 mutation carriers have a compromised ovarian reserve compared to proven non-carriers, based on serum anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) levels? SUMMARY ANSWER: BRCA1/2 mutation carriers do not show a lower serum AMH level in comparison to proven non-carriers, after adjustment for potential confounders. WHAT IS KNOWN ALREADY: It has been suggested that the BRCA genes play a role in the process of ovarian reserve depletion, although previous studies have shown inconsistent results regarding the association between serum AMH levels and BRCA mutation status...

BACKGROUND: Ovarian reserve (OR) testing with serum anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) can provide information about a woman's fertility potential. The aim of this study was to assess interest and knowledge about OR testing and investigate the utility of measuring AMH in women of reproductive age deferring pregnancy. METHODS: Women ages 27-37 years currently delaying childbearing were invited to take a survey regarding attitudes and knowledge about OR testing before and after an AMH measurement with explanation of their results...

The Fertility Assessment and Counselling Clinic was initiated in 2011 as an analogue to the family planning clinics in the 1970s, but with a pro-fertility aim. The idea was to provide individual assessment of fertility risk factors, ovarian reserve and sperm concentration to help women and men to fulfil their reproductive life plan. Fertility screening on an individual level is a new concept, and the Fertility Assessment and Counselling Clinic is the first of its kind. The aim of the clinic is to reduce the need for fertility treatments and to prevent involuntary childlessness...

Salpingectomy is largely used in case of hydrosalpinx in infertile women scheduled for assisted reproductive technologies (ART), whereas there is no consensus on its role in absence of hydrosalpinx. The current is a systematic literature review to collate all available evidence regarding salpingectomy as fertility enhancement procedure before ART in infertile patients. Our primary endpoint was to assess the impact of the surgical procedure on ovarian reserve, and secondary outcomes were to evaluate its benefits and harms on ART outcomes...

Cognitive changes that occur during mid-life and beyond are linked to both aging and the menopause transition. Studies in women suggest that the age at menopause onset can impact cognitive status later in life; yet, little is known about memory changes that occur during the transitional period to the postmenopausal state. The 4-vinylcyclohexene diepoxide (VCD) model simulates transitional menopause in rodents by depleting the immature ovarian follicle reserve and allowing animals to retain their follicle-deplete ovarian tissue, resulting in a profile similar to the majority of perimenopausal women...

BACKGROUND: Serum anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) concentration has been used to assess ovarian reserve in patients with endometriosis, especially when endometrioma surgery is involved. Previously, we reported that decreased serum AMH levels after cystectomy for endometriomas can recover to preoperative levels in some cases. In this present study, we assessed the sequential changes in serum AMH levels before and after cystectomy in terms of the state of the mesosalpinx prior to surgery...

Several articles highlighting the epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical features, treatment modalities and disease assessment of Behçet's syndrome (BS) have been published during the last year. Clinical and radiological features of lower extremity deep vein thrombosis due to BS can be quite different than those found in thrombosis due to other causes; additionally, frequency of post-thrombotic syndrome is significantly increased in BS. Some clinical and colonoscopic features are useful in differentiating BS from Crohn's disease...
