1. Compared to naturally conceived newborns, couples with infertility who conceived by assisted reproductive technologies (ART) were more likely to be born with a non-genetic birth defect. 2. The absolute risk of a non-genetic birth defect among infertile couples who conceived via ART treatments was very low. Evidence Rating Level: 2...
1. Women with a history of cancer were less likely to have a successful live birth using autologous oocytes compared to healthy infertile women. 2. In donor oocyte cycles, live birth rates were similar between groups. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Study Rundown: Assisted reproductive technology (ART) is increasingly used to help...
1. Compared to the general population, women who underwent assisted reproductive technologies (ART) treatments were not at increased risk for developing cancer after approximately 5 years of follow-up. 2. ART treatment was not associated with an increased risk of uterine, ovarian or endocrine cancers and was associated with a reduced risk...
1. Despite rejection episodes and graft viability concerns, both recipients and their partners of uterine donation reported stable well-being during the first year after surgery. 2. At 3-month follow-up, transplant recipients reported a significant increase in pain and decrease physical functioning from baseline, both of which resolved by 6 months. Evidence Rating...
1. The type of culture media and the duration of embryo culture were not associated with changes in birthweight in singletons born using assisted reproductive technologies (ART). 2. These findings contradict previous studies. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good)   Study Rundown: The use of assisted reproduction technologies (ART), such as in vitro...
1. Patients performing self-operated endovaginal telemonitoring (SOET) had comparable pregnancy rates to patients in the non-SOET group.  2. Patients in the SOET group had higher satisfaction and sense of empowerment during their assisted reproductive technology (ART) experience.  Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good)  Study Rundown: As the number of women who use assisted...
Image: PD 1. Overall, clinic factors such as patient centeredness were unrelated to continuation of fertility care.  2. Among individuals receiving non-assisted reproduction treatment (e.g. intrauterine insemination), those who reported their fertility clinic as having low respect for patient values were more likely to drop out, whereas among women receiving assisted...
