Presented by Anne Marie Z. Jukic, Ph.D., this presentation will examine the role of vitamin D and reproductive health, synthesizing her research and work on this topic including the effect on the menstrual cycle, time to pregnancy, ovarian reserve, and inflammation.
This new research, International Natural Procreative Technology Evaluation and Surveillance of Treatment for Sub-fertility (iNEST) : enrollment and methods sponsored by the IIRRM, and involving multiple IIRRM members, was published earlier this year. “iNEST” worked to establish and build more robust outcomes research for Restorative Reproductive Medicine, and was the first multi-clinic multinational study published for Restorative Reproductive Medicine (and specifically for NaProTechnology). Dr. Joseph Stanford presents this work alongside some of the co-authors involved in the study.
What observations and effects could Covid-19 infection or Covid-19 vaccination have on women’s cycles? What observed menstrual changes are seen in women’s charts during this time, and how long do these persist? How could further data be collected for further research? View this Grand Rounds to explore early data observing the effects of covid 19, as well as the Covid 19 vaccination, on women’s cycle charts.

Professor Stephan Gordts presents a systematic minimal invasive exploration of so-called “unexplained infertility” (normal ultrasound/normal HSG) reveals the presence of pelvic pathology on 50-70 % of patients. In the absence of other fertility impairing factors, like male infertility, he looks at the different treatments of these pathologies to create the possibilities for normal conception.
Dr. Paul Carpentier provides an update and review on the use of Lisinopril for Male infertility, discussing the article, “Angiotensin-converting enzymes play a dominant role infertility”.
