BACKGROUND Anti-mullerian hormone (AMH) is a marker of ovarian function and reserve and reflects the number and size of antral follicles. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of FSH suppression on AMH levels, during the late luteal phase of human menstrual cycle, with the use of oral contraceptives pills (OCP). METHODS Twenty(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the reproducibility and the reliability of an innovative, computer-assisted approach for automatically measuring ovarian follicles. DESIGN Prospective, comparative study. SETTING Hospital Béclère, Clamart, France. PATIENT(S) Fifteen infertile women undergoing IVF-ET in monodominant follicle cycles. INTERVENTION(S) Just before(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to determine the prevalence of drug use among institutionalized children and adolescents; to assess the degree of associated use of illicit drugs with alcohol and tobacco; and to determine which is the gateway drug to illicit drug use. METHODS A cross-sectional study was carried out in the Fundação Estadual do Bem-Estar do(More)
The accurate assessment of ovarian reserve is an essential step before the treatment of infertile couples. Ovarian reserve could either be evaluated through clinical or biological parameters, but ultrasound plays a remarkable role, since it permits the direct visualization and count of ovarian antral follicles. Nevertheless, the available literature data(More)
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the number of endometrial glandular openings, using previously reported software that provides an objective count, and to assess the variability of this parameter during the luteal phase in a population of women who had no hormonal abnormalities presenting with tubal infertility or male factor infertility.

The authors describe a case report of a uterine diverticulum in a postmenopausal woman with abnormal uterine bleeding, confirmed by 3-dimensional ultrasonography and hysteroscopy. They comment on the clinical significance of this rare lesion.
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the reliability of a computer-assisted approach for automatically measuring ovarian follicles during controlled ovarian hyperstimulation (COH). DESIGN Prospective, comparative study. SETTING Hospital Béclère, Clamart, France. PATIENT(S) Twenty-seven infertile IVF-ET candidates undergoing COH. INTERVENTION(S) Just before the(More)
OBJECTIVES To verify non-inferiority of the clinical pregnancy rate of Early hCG administration (leading follicle sizes within 16.0-16.9 mm in diameter) compared to Late hCG administration (leading follicle sizes within 18.0-18.9 mm in diameter). STUDY DESIGN Prospective randomized trial. Six hundred and twelve infertile women candidates for intrauterine(More)
Papillomas of the lower genital tract are rare benign lesions, which cause vaginal bleeding in girls. We report a case in a 2-year-old girl. Few cases have been described in children and adolescents. However, it should be considered as a possible diagnosis in girls with sanguineous vaginal discharge.
To reduce the twin pregnancy rate and their morbidity, several recommendations have been proposed to practice the "elective single embryo transfer" in a selected population. We decided to apply the criteria that were proposed in five articles from the literature to our population to evaluate the percentage of our population concerned and the impact on our(More)
