OBJECTIVE To determine the predictive factors for pregnancy after controlled ovarian hyperstimulation (COH)/intrauterine insemination (IUI). DESIGN Prospective observational study. SETTING University-level tertiary care center. PATIENTS AND METHODS 366 patients undergoing 480 stimulated IUI cycles between November 2007 and December 2008. (More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy of blastocyst transfer in comparison with cleavage stage embryo in a similar cohort of women. DESIGN Retrospective analysis. SETTING University teaching hospital. MATERIALS AND METHODS Women aged 35 or less undergoing in vitro fertilization/intracytoplasmic sperm injection between January 2005 and December 2006 were(More)
The changing social scenario together with economic growth and an increase in job opportunities has to a great extent reduced gender inequality and has resulted in more and more older women seeking help from infertility clinics. Fertility and aging have always been closely linked and the age of the female partner remains the single most important factor in(More)
Severe ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome remains one of the life threatening complication of assisted reproductive technology. In refractory cases of late ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS), clinicians are left with limited therapeutic options. We report a case of refractory OHSS which was managed successfully using thawed plasma. Thawed plasma(More)
OBJECTIVE The polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and the metabolic syndrome (MetS) are common disorders that share many characteristics, particularly abdominal obesity and insulin resistance. Our objective was to compare the prevalence of MetS between a large cohort of patients with PCOS and body mass index -matched controls. DESIGN Cross-sectional study.(More)
OBJECTIVES The overwhelming numbers of twins following assisted reproductive technology (ART) are dichorionic twins, but monochorionic twins account for around 0.9% of post ART pregnancies. The data for post ART-monochorionic pregnancy outcomes are scarce due to the rarity of this condition. Hence, we evaluated the obstetric outcomes of monochorionic and(More)
Clomiphene citrate has been traditionally used as the drug of choice in treating women with anovulatory infertility. In the last decade letrozole, an aromatase inhibitor has emerged as alternative ovulation induction agent. Literature confirms that letrozole has a definitive role in anovulatory women who have not responded to the clomiphene therapy. However(More)
AIM To estimate the prevalence of chromosomal abnormalities and Y chromosome microdeletion among men with azoospermia and severe oligozoospermia and its correlation with successful surgical sperm retrieval. SETTING AND DESIGN A prospective study in a tertiary level infertility unit. MATERIALS AND METHODS In a prospective observation study, men with(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of the study was to evaluate the role of Progesterone/ Estradiol (P4/E2) ratio as a predictive tool for clinical pregnancy in ART cycles with a premature progesterone rise of >1.5 ng/ml on the day of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) trigger. METHODS Retrospective analysis was done on 569 fresh embryo transfer cycles from January(More)
OBJECTIVES The literature regarding clinical outcomes following day 5/6 vitrified warmed blastocysts transfer has been conflicting. We decided to evaluate and compare the clinical outcomes following vitrified warmed day 5/6 blastocyst transfer using a solid surface vitrification protocol with fresh blastocyst transfers.
