A method of time-lapse photography for the assessment of sperm velocity is presented. The intersampling variation was not significant, nor was the effect of dilution. Sperm velocity increased with temperature within the range 25 degrees C to 40 degrees C. The possible clinical use of the technique is discussed.
A method is described for the separation of motile sperm from semen by "migration' into a diluent, providing a large area of interface between the semen and the diluent and resulting in a good yield of motile sperm (58%), with a mean percentage of motility of 95%. The method provides a specimen free of seminal plasma and debris and suitable for intrauterine(More)
Sixteen women requesting surgical treatment of menorrhagia were recruited for a study on microwave endometrial ablation. The mean age at treatment was 41.4 years and all patients had completed their family and were pre-menopausal. Average treatment time was 2 minutes 6 seconds. All patients reported a reduction in their menstrual loss and 87.5% were(More)
55 of 100 new female patients attending an infertility clinic had serum-prolactin concentrations greater than the upper limit of normal (360 mU/l). There was no significant correlation between serum-prolactin value and clinical features including age, duration of infertility, past reproduction, menstrual pattern, past use of oral contraception, or(More)
The clinical use of bromocriptine (2.5 mg twice daily) was investigated in 40 women attending an infertility clinic and presenting with secondary amenorrhoea (18) or with ovarian dysfunction (22) which had failed to respond to anti-oestrogen therapy. Patients in each group were sub-divided into those with raised and those with normal prolactin levels, and(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate patients' experiences in the first 3 months following microwave endometrial ablation (MEA) for menorrhagia as well as the suitability of local anaesthesia (LA) versus general anaesthesia (GA) for these procedures. We carried out a cross-sectional questionnaire survey of 173 patients at 3 months after treatment with(More)
