Shift Work and Early Reproductive Outcomes

A systematic review and meta-analysis was performed comparing women who worked the day shift (hours between 8:00 AM and 6:00 PM) with women who worked outside of that time frame. Reproductive outcomes included change of cycle length to less than 25 days or more than 31 days, infertility, and spontaneous pregnancy loss, before 25 weeks gestation

A systematic review and standardized clinical validity assessment of male infertility genes

Improvements in genetic testing have obvious benefits, particularly in RRM. The ability to identify co-morbidities, provide diagnosis to the male and answers to the couple seeking to conceive, as well as predict the reproductive health of the couples offspring. With few genes identified so far, this review emphasizes the need for more male infertility genomics research in order to improve diagnostics and patient care.

Use of metformin to treat pregnant women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PregMet2): a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial

Women with PCOS are at greater risk for pregnancy complications including impaired fertility gestational diabetes (GDM), pre-eclampsia, preterm delivery, and miscarriage. This paper wraps up two decades of research from Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). Three controlled studies were carried out between 2000-2017 across 15 different hospitals in Sweden, Norway, and Iceland

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….
