Abnormal estrous cyclicity after disruption of endothelial and inducible nitric oxide synthase in mice.
The dysfunction in cyclicity, ovulation rate, ovarian morphology, and steroidogenesis in eNOS-knockout female mice strongly supports the concept that eN OS/NO plays critical roles in ovulation and follicular development. Expand
Body mass index: impact on IVF success appears age-related.
In younger patients undergoing IVF, BMI has a significant negative impact on fertility that diminishes as patients reach their mid thirties, and after Age 36, BMI does not appear to have a major effect on IVF outcome. Expand

The relationship of the postcoital test and semen characteristics to pregnancy rates in 200 presumed fertile couples.
The results support the use of the PCT for initial evaluation of the infertile couple and measures predictive of pregnancy, which included vigorously moving sperm per high-power field, sperm concentration, motile sperm count, and percent motility. Expand
Endometrin as luteal phase support in assisted reproduction.
Endometrin monotherapy was sufficient for the P component of luteal support and provided high PRs for fresh cycles in both autologous and donor oocyte cycles in assisted reproductive technology (ART) cycles. Expand
Session 06: Oocyte/Embryo Freezing
How members of the Society for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility and Society of Reproductive Surgeons evaluate, define, and manage hydrosalpinges.
Although laparoscopic salpingectomy was the preferred method of surgical management, nearly one-half responded that hysteroscopic tubal occlusion should have a role as a primary method of intervention. Expand
Patients’ administration preferences: progesterone vaginal insert (Endometrin®) compared to intramuscular progesterone for Luteal phase support
It is suggested that PVI provides an easy-to-use and convenient method for providing the necessary luteal phase support for IVF cycles without the pain and inconvenience of daily IM PIO. Expand
