Limits of current male fertility testing.

Fertil Steril 2019 Apr 8. Epub 2019 Apr 8.

Genk Institute for Fertility Technology, ZOL Hospitals, Genk, Belgium; Hasselt University, Hasselt, Belgium.

In the current approach to male fertility testing, basic semen analysis has limitations as a predictor of fertility status, and the technology is fraught with variability. Nonetheless, it remains the cornerstone of the evaluation of the male infertility, and we recommend adherence to most recent World Health Organization guidelines. Although the current sperm function tests (bioassays) have important drawbacks, they are still valuable as research tools. Read More

Endometrial preparation for third-party parenting and cryopreserved embryo transfer.

Fertil Steril 2019 Apr;111(4):641-649

Division of Reproductive, Endocrinology and Infertility, Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology, Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, California. Electronic address:

The advent of third party parenting ushered in the era of artificial stimulation of the endometrium. Initially intended only for patients with ovarian failure, exogenous induction of endometrial receptivity was quickly shown to be as good as natural endometrial preparation, with the advantage that the timing of embryo transfer could be controlled. It is perhaps surprising that even though the ovary produces a variety of steroids, that estradiol (E) and progesterone (P) alone would be needed to achieve optimal receptivity; no other substance has ever been shown to improve on the basic regimen of E and P.

Uterine polyps, adenomyosis, leiomyomas, and endometrial receptivity.

Authors:
Malcolm G Munro

Fertil Steril 2019 Apr;111(4):629-640

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, Los Angeles, California; Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Kaiser-Permanente, Los Angeles Medical Center, Los Angeles, California. Electronic address:

Endometrial polyps, adenomyosis, and leiomyomas are commonly encountered abnormalities frequently found in both fertile women and those with infertility. The clinician is frequently challenged to determine which of these entities, when found, is likely to impair fertility, and which are "innocent bystanders" unrelated to the problem at hand. Although removing an endometrial polyp may be seen as a relatively benign and safe intervention, myomectomy, and in particular adenomyomectomy, can be substantive surgical procedures, associated with their own potential for disrupting fertility.

Clinical approach to recurrent implantation failure: evidence-based evaluation of the endometrium.

Fertil Steril 2019 Apr;111(4):618-628

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Division of Reproductive Endocrinology, Fertility and IVF, George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences, Washington, D.C.

The endometrium is a dynamic, repetitively cycling tissue that mediates the implantation of the blastocyst. Evaluation of this complex tissue necessitates sophisticated methods that can assess its functional potential. Beginning in the 1950s with simple histological endometrial "dating," these methods have crossed into the molecular era with the use of arrays aimed at dating, functional tests that assess for proliferation and differentiation, and tests that screen for inflammatory markers.

What exactly is endometrial receptivity?

Fertil Steril 2019 Apr;111(4):611-617

Division of Reproductive Endocrinology, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

Endometrial receptivity is a complex process that provides the embryo with the opportunity to attach, invade, and develop, culminating in a new individual and continuation of the species. The window of implantation extends 3-6 days within the secretory phase in most normal women. In certain inflammatory or anatomic conditions, this window is narrowed or shifted to preclude normal implantation, leading to infertility or pregnancy loss. Read More
