For this study, researchers investigated the incidence of primary ovarian insufficiency incidence and estimated risk for POI after vaccination with human papillomavirus, Tdap, influenza and meningococcal conjugate using Kaiser Permanente Northwest electronic health records from 2006 to 2014.
The researchers estimated that after power plant retirement, annual fertility rates per 1000 women aged 15 to 44 years increased by 8 births within 5km and 2 births within 5 to 10km of power plants, yielding incident rate ratios of 1.2 (95% confidence interval, 1.1 to 1.4) and 1.1 (95% confidence interval, 1.0 to 1.2), respectively.
The researchers observed an association for higher prepregnancy triglyceride (TG) and TG to high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (TG:HDL-c) ratio levels with increased risk of one lifetime pregnancy, compared with having 2 or more children.
Women prescribed long- vs short-term opioids for chronic musculoskeletal pain may be at increased risk for menopause and abnormal menstruation.
Healthcare professionals and patients should check Gonal-f products for possible tampering before use; purchases should only be made through licensed wholesale distributors and pharmacies.
"Our results stress the importance of not only female, but also male diet on time to pregnancy and suggests that both partners should be incorporating more seafood into their diets for the maximum fertility benefit," said lead author Audrey J. Gaskins, ScD.
Women in the lowest versus the highest tertile of the MedDietScore had significantly lower rates of clinical pregnancy (29.1 versus 50.0%) and live birth (26.6 versus 48.8%).
The researchers found that the risk of surgical complications was lower for hysteroscopic sterilization during the hospitalization for sterilization (0.13 versus 0.78%; adjusted risk difference, −0.64).
Those with moderate-to-severe deficiency (iodine-creatinine ratios <50 μg/g) had a 46% reduction in fecundity versus those whose iodine-creatinine ratios were in the adequate range (adjusted fecundability odds ratio of becoming pregnant per cycle, 0.54).
The researchers found that the time to ovulation was decreased in the stair-step versus the traditional protocol (23.1 ± 0.9 versus 47.5 ± 6.3 days).
The Lia Pregnancy Test is made with the same plant based fibers as most toilet paper and weighs less than 6 squares of the leading 3-ply toilet paper.
The researchers found that live birth was more likely in women replete with vitamin D versus those with vitamin D deficiency or insufficiency.
GONAL-f (follitropin alfa injection) is a recombinant human follicle-stimulating hormone (r-hFSH) approved for the treatment female infertility and a rare form of male infertility.
The data indicated little association between vaccination in females (FR 0.98, 95% CI: 0.90, 1.08) or males (FR 1.07, 95% CI: 0.79, 1.46) and fecundability.
The study included 1,119 women being treated for infertility who had their fallopian tubes flushed with either iodized poppy seed oil or water.
"This is the first study that demonstrates that scaffold architecture makes a difference in follicle survival," said one of the lead researchers Dr. Ramille Shah.
The presence of a non-Lactobacillus-dominated microbiota in a receptive endometrium is associated with poor reproductive outcomes for women undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF).
Patients undergoing fertility treatment often suffer symptoms of depression or anxiety, but few get any formal help, according to research published in Fertility and Sterility.
A bracelet that can track a woman's fertility has been launched today by the medical technology company Ava. In clinical trials the bracelet (which is worn only at night), detected an average of 5.3 fertile days per cycle with 89% accuracy.
Women who undergo in vitro fertilization (IVF) are not at increased risk of breast cancer, according to a study published in the issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association.
Results of in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycles using eggs from older donors are as good as those using eggs from younger women.
