For patients at risk of premature ovarian failure with cancer treatment, it is an important option to re-implant the ovarian tissue (OT) after cryopreservation to preserve endocrine function and fertility. With this technique, about 30% of pregnancy success rate and about 90 live births have been reported to date. However, there has been no case report of successful in vitro fertilization (IVF) and embryo transfer (ET) with oocytes collected from transplanted cryopreserved OT in Korea. We report a 30-year old woman with rectal cancer who underwent IVF and ET after cryopreserved OT thawing and re-implantation...

INTRODUCTION: Obesity is an epidemic affecting more than one-third of adults in the United States. Obese women experience decreased fertility, explained in part by oocyte quality. Since follicular fluid (FF) provides an important microenvironment for oocyte growth, we sought to evaluate the effect of increased body weight on FF levels of 11 metabolic hormones and fatty acid metabolism. METHODS: The FF was collected from 25 women (10 normal weight, 10 overweight, and 5 obese) with diminished ovarian reserve undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) following a minimal stimulation protocol...

INTRODUCTION: Frozen-thawed embryo transfer (FET) has become an increasingly important part of in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) treatment. Currently, there is still no good scientific evidence to support when to perform FET following a stimulated IVF cycle. Since all published studies are retrospective and the findings are contradictory, a randomised controlled study is needed to provide Level 1 evidence to guide the clinical practice. METHODS/ANALYSIS: This is a randomised controlled trial...

Background: Luteinizing hormone (LH) is essential for normal follicular development and oocyte maturation. In particular, fluctuations of LH during the follicular phase have a significant impact on morphological and functional changes of the oocyte and determine its meiotic status and ability to be fertilized. Objective: This prospective randomized controlled trial examined effects of endogenous follicular phase LH levels on oocyte maturity and IVF outcomes in fixed vs...

Progesterone elevation (PE) during the late follicular phase of controlled ovarian stimulation in fresh embryo transfer in vitro fertilization (IVF)/intracytoplasmic sperm injection cycles has been claimed to be associated with decreased pregnancy rates. However, the evidence is not unequivocal, and clinicians still have questions about the clinical validity of measuring P levels during the follicular phase of stimulated cycles. We reviewed the existing literature aimed at answering four relevant clinical questions, namely (i) Is gonadotropin type associated with PE during the follicular phase of stimulated cycles? (ii) Is PE on the day of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) associated with negative fresh embryo transfer IVF/intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) cycles outcomes in all patient subgroups? (iii) Which P thresholds are best to identify patients at risk of implantation failure due to PE in a fresh embryo transfer? and (iv) Should a freeze all policy be adopted in all the cycles with PE on the day of hCG? The existing evidence indicates that late follicular phase progesterone rise in gonadotropin releasing analog cycles is mainly caused by the supraphysiological stimulation of granulosa cells with exogenous follicle-stimulating hormone...

OBJECTIVE: Any benefit of oestradiol supplementation with progesterone for luteal support after fresh embryo transfer in in vitro fertilisation/intracytoplasmic sperm injection (IVF/ICSI) cycles remains controversial. In this study, we further addressed this question in cycles using gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist for ovarian stimulation. DESIGN: A retrospective cohort study in a tertiary teaching and research hospital. PATIENT(S): A total of 1602 patients were given oestradiol valerate (E) in addition to progesterone(P) as luteal support...

BACKGROUND: The use of long protocol during controlled ovarian stimulation for assisted reproduction attracts high dosage of gonadotropins. High dose of gonadotropins can be detrimental to oocyte development, which affects its quality and compromises the treatment outcome. Mild stimulation protocols that attract low dose gonadotropins could be useful alternative regimen to address such problems. This study evaluated the efficacy of low dose clomiphene citrate based protocol plus low dose gonadotropins on predicted normal responder patients who had unsuspected poor in vitro fertilization (IVF) result, following an initial stimulation with long gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist protocol...

The aim of this study was to investigate the impact of anti-thyroid peroxidase antibodies (Anti-TPO) on the in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer (IVF-ET) outcome in women with poor ovarian reserve but normal thyrotropin levels. A total of 300 patients with poor ovarian reserve undergoing ICSI cycle from April 2015 to December 2017 were analyzed retrospectively. Subjects were divided into two groups: Group 1: Women with early ovarian aging, Group 2: Women with age related poor ovarian reserve. All subjects underwent anti-thyroid peroxidase antibody (anti-TPO) analysis...

The presence of smooth endoplasmic reticulum aggregates (SERa) in the ooplasm is considered as the most severe oocyte dysmorphism due to its serious and potentially lethal outcomes in offspring. In the present case report, a couple underwent their first intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) cycle using a gonadotrophin releasing hormone (GnRH) antagonist protocol, followed by fetal ultrasound scanning and amniocentesis. SERa were observed in all oocytes retrieved. A singleton pregnancy was established. The second trimester fetal ultrasound scan revealed a female fetus with overlapping fingers in both hands, and amniocentesis was performed for the detection of chromosomal abnormalities...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Gonadotrophin in IVF increases the number of oocytes retrieved, and many doctors regard a high number of oocytes as a measurement of success in IVF. Thus, the dogma of more oocytes provides better IVF success has been broadly accepted. However, some European fertility specialists have argued against this concept, saying fewer eggs might, in some instances, be a better option for the patient. RECENT FINDINGS: The concept of 'one size fits all' stimulation in artificial reproductive technologies is not broadly supported by the current literature...

Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) is an iatrogenic complication of controlled ovarian stimulation. The use of gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist for the trigger of oocyte maturation is effective in the prevention of OHSS although it may result in a lower pregnancy rate. The use of adjuvant low dose human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) at the time of trigger or at the time of oocyte retrieval may improve pregnancy rates. The goal of this dual trigger study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the use of low dose hCG administered at the time of GnRH agonist trigger or 35 h later as well as the potential impact on pregnancy rates...
