1. This multicenter randomized control study showed that there were no significant differences in live birth rates between women undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) who had endometrial scratching performed prior to embryo transfer and women who had no intervention. 2. The scratch procedure was associated with mild pain and a...

1. No differences were observed in live-birth rate, rates of implantation, clinical pregnancy, overall pregnancy loss, or ongoing pregnancy incidents between ovulatory women with infertility who received frozen-embryo or fresh-embryo transfers. 2. Frozen-embryo transfer resulted in significantly lower rates of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome compared to fresh-embryo transfer. Evidence Rating Level: 1...
1. Frozen-embryo transfer was associated with a significantly lower frequency of pregnancy loss and ovarian hyperstimulation compared to fresh-embryo transfer in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) receiving in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment. 2. Frozen-embryo transfer was associated with a significantly higher risk of preeclampsia compared to fresh-embryo transfer in...
1. This prospective cohort study found that breast cancer risk among women treated with in vitro fertilization (IVF) was not significantly different compared to women receiving fertility drugs (but not IVF), nor the general population. 2. Risk for breast cancer was significantly decreased for women who received 7 or more...
1. Infants conceived via natural In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) cycles (no controlled ovarian hyperstimulation) were less likely to be low birthweight at delivery compared to those conceived via standard IVF cycles. 2. This association did not remain significant after adjusting for gestational age. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Study Rundown: A growing...
1. In poor responders, live birth rates were higher after modified natural stimulation compared with high-dose hormonal stimulation cycles. 2. Compared to high-dose cycles, modified natural cycles resulted in fewer follicles on day of trigger, fewer oocytes retrieved, and fewer good-quality embryos transferred. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Study Rundown: Advancements in...
1. In women receiving in vitro fertilization (IVF) for decreased ovarian reserve, both intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and assisted hatching (AH) were associated with lower rates of live birth than those who received no micromanipulation.  2. In women with an elevated FSH, neither ICSI nor AH were associated with improved...
1. There was no increase in adverse obstetric or perinatal adverse outcomes among pregnancies achieved through in vitro fertilization (IVF) with frozen, compared to fresh eggs.  2. Women with ongoing pregnancies conceived using frozen eggs had a higher incidence of invasive procedures, such as amniocentesis compared to women with ongoing...
Image: PD 1. In donor oocyte IVF cycles, embryo transfer on day 5 and single embryo transfer were positively associated with achievement of singleton term pregnancy.  2. The majority of women undergoing donor oocyte IVF have more than one embryo transferred. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good)  Study Rundown: This study found that while...
