August Journal Club: Menstrual Preconditioning for the Prevention of Major Obstetrical Syndromes in Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

Background: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most common endocrine disorder in women of childbearing age (6.8%–18%), is among the most common causes of infertility due to ovulation factors, and accounts for 55%–70% of infertility cases caused by chronic anovulation. In this study, we used a combination of letrozole and clomiphene in patients resistant to both drugs individually, and studied the effects of this combination in ovulation and pregnancy in resistant PCOS patients.

RRM Bulletin: Vol. 8

Effects of medications on mucus The fertility charts of women using fertility awareness based methods (FABMs) is a wonderful tool for seeing changes in life. Mucus quantity and quality, as well as days of mucus, can be seen to diminish with age, stress, weight loss, and strenuous exercise regimens. Dry cycles, or those with very limited mucus, can make it challenging to find optimal timing for days of fertility, and for lab testing or tracking when to start progesterone or other hormonal supplementation.
