Immobilisation after intrauterine insemination has no beneficial effect on pregnancy rates in women

Immobilisation after intrauterine insemination has no beneficial effect on pregnancy rates in women

Despite the positive results of small studies and a widely held belief in its benefit, the practice of keeping female patients immobilised after intrauterine insemination has no beneficial effect on pregnancy rates, according to results of a large randomised study presented here at the Annual Meeting of ESHRE in Helsinki.

Three in four women starting fertility treatment will have a baby within five years, whether as a result of the treatment or following natural conception. [More]
Endometrial scratching in women appears to increase chance of clinical pregnancy, live birth

Endometrial scratching in women appears to increase chance of clinical pregnancy, live birth

There is a much disputed claim that "injury" to the lining of the uterus - whether inadvertent or deliberate - increases the chance of embryo implantation and thus the chance of pregnancy in certain groups of women having IVF. [More]
Study finds children from solo mother families have positive feelings about family life

Study finds children from solo mother families have positive feelings about family life

The number of children born to single women is increasing, partly as a result of social and legislative changes in the rights to parenthood. [More]
Study examines effects of lifestyle-intervention in obese women undergoing fertility treatment

Study examines effects of lifestyle-intervention in obese women undergoing fertility treatment

Women who are overweight or obese pose an ongoing challenge for the fertility clinic. Many studies show that these patients are at increased risk of infertility and are less likely than normal-weight women to conceive after fertility treatment. [More]
Mitochondrial DNA levels may represent accurate, predictive measure of embryo viability in IVF

Mitochondrial DNA levels may represent accurate, predictive measure of embryo viability in IVF

Despite the claims and counter-claims for new embryo assessment techniques introduced over the past two decades, the search for the holy grail of assisted reproduction - the key to the embryo destined to implant - continues. [More]

New IVF-based technique can reduce risk of mothers passing on mitochondrial disease to infants

A new IVF-based technique is likely to lead to normal pregnancies and reduce the risk that babies born will have mitochondrial disease, according to researchers at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Mitochondrial Disease at Newcastle University. [More]
Clinical study finds two topical skin creams as effective noninvasive treatments for low-risk superficial BCC

Clinical study finds two topical skin creams as effective noninvasive treatments for low-risk superficial BCC

Basal cell carcinoma is one of the most common cancers and its incidence is increasing worldwide, putting a significant burden on health services. Topical treatments are available for superficial basal cell carcinoma (BCC) but there has a lack of long-term follow-up data to guide treatment decisions. [More]

Study shows that women with endometriosis at increased risk of miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy

Women with endometriosis are at an increased risk of miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy, according to results of a huge nationwide study presented today. Moreover, women with a history of endometriosis whose pregnancies progressed beyond 24 weeks were found to be at a higher than average risk of complications, including haemorrhage (ante- and postpartum) and preterm birth.
