The SART clinic physicians were mailed a cover letter and consent form, a two-page survey, and return envelope. The surveys were returned and analyzed using descriptive statistics.
Small multiple follicles (> or = 10) and enlarged ovarian volume (> 6.2 mL) were the most prominent transvaginal US features of ovaries in patients with PCOS with CC nonresponsiveness. These US features could be clinically useful for distinguishing clearly a CC nonresponder from a CC responder.

We performed this study to investigate and compare the effects of Letrozole and gonadotrophins versus Clomiphene Citrate and gonadotrophins in women undergoing superovulation for Intrauterine Insemination (IUI).
A 21-year-old man, who had had normal sexuality, noticed a decrease in libido and potency as well as loss of ejaculation. Endocrinological evaluation showed normal serum levels of gonadotropins but a low testosterone level. The response to clomiphene citrate was poor while the response to luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone and human chorionic gonadotropin were within normal limits. By the examination of brain computerized tomography a tumor was detected in the septum pellucidum and was resected. Histologically it proved to be a mixed tumor composed of astrocytoma and oligodendroglioma. Two months after the operation the patient had recovered normal sexual functions and the endocrinological functions, including the responsiveness to clomiphene citrate, had been restored. This case suggests the existence of some stimulatory fiber for the secretion of luteinizing hormone in the septum pellucidum.

The long-acting agonist analogue of LHRH, Buserelin (Hoechst) has been used to suppress endogenous gonadotrophins prior to induction of ovulation with low dose human menopausal gonadotrophin (HMG) in women with clomiphene-resistant polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). The results have been compared with those in a similar group of patients treated with HMG alone. Buserelin (900-1,500 micrograms/day) was given intranasally to 11 women who thereafter received a total of 33 cycles of treatment with low-dose HMG. The control group comprised 16 women who received 40 cycles of HMG without Buserelin pretreatment. The ovulation rate was similar in the two groups: Buserelin + HMG 70%, HMG alone 68% and both groups showed a high rate of single follicle ovulation (52 and 63%, respectively). The threshold dose of gonadotrophin required to induce a single follicle was similar in the two groups. Premature elevation of LH in the late follicular phase was common in women who received HMG alone, but did not occur in any cycle in the patients receiving Buserelin pretreatment. In summary, these data show that pretreatment with an LHRH analogue prevents a premature LH surge but it remains to be determined whether this will have a significant bearing on the rate of successful pregnancy in women with PCOS.

This report concerns the development of in-vitro fertilization (IVF) in the Nordic countries from the start of 1981 to January 1, 1988. All the 24 clinics in the Nordic countries which treat infertile couples with IVF participated in the study. The number of IVF clinics in the Nordic countries has increased from four in 1981 to 24 in 1987. In the same period, the number of people who spent some of their professional time as a part of an IVF team increased from 17 to 150. The majority of the clinics (19) based their activity mainly on governmental funding, while five of the clinics were private. During the period from 1981 to 1987, the Nordic clinic changed their methods of oocyte retrieval. In 1981, all oocyte retrievals were done using laparoscopy. Transvesical, ultrasound-guided follicular punctures domainated in 1985 and transvaginal ultrasound-guided punctures were used in 81.5% of the retrievals in 1987. A total of 852 pregnancies were reported. Of these, 313 (36.8%) were miscarriages, including 66 (7.7%) ectopic pregnancies. At January 1, 1988, 433 babies had been born, including 48 sets of twins, 14 sets of triplets and two sets of quadruplets. This gave a multiple birth rate of 18.2%. Premature births (less than 36 weeks of gestation) were reported in 14.6% of the births. Five babies (1.1%) died in the neonatal period and five (1.1%) were born with various types of malformation. One hundred and eight-eight pregnancies were in progress at January 1, 1988.

No new trials were identified. This review includes two RCTs with low risk of bias that compared urinary human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) versus no treatment in anovulatory women receiving clomiphene citrate. Urinary hCG did not result in an increase in live birth rate over no hCG (OR 0.97, 95% CI 0.52 to 1.83; two trials, 305 participants, I(2) = 16%; low-quality evidence), but very serious imprecision around the effect estimate reduces our confidence in the apparent lack of effect of hCG as an ovulation trigger in clomiphene-induced cycles in anovulatory women.Among this review's secondary outcomes, urinary hCG may not increase ovulation rate (OR 0.99, 95% CI 0.36 to 2.77; two trials, 305 participants, I(2) = 55%; low-quality evidence), clinical pregnancy rate (OR 1.02, 95% CI 0.56 to 1.89; two trials, 305 participants, I(2) = 35%; low-quality evidence) or miscarriage rate in pregnant women (OR 1.19, 95% CI 0.17 to 8.23; two trials, 54 participants, I(2) = 0%; low-quality evidence). Multiple pregnancies and preterm deliveries were uncommon, and ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome, adverse events and deaths were not reported as outcomes in either trial. We found no trials evaluating other ovulation triggers.

We used data from the National Birth Defects Prevention Study, a population-based, multi-site case-control study of major birth defects. Women from 10 US regions with deliveries affected by at least one of >30 birth defects (cases) and mothers of live born infants without a major birth defect (controls) who delivered October 1997-December 2005 were interviewed. The exposure of interest was reported CC use in the period from 2 months before conception through the first month of pregnancy. Women who conceived using assisted reproductive technology were excluded. Thirty-six birth defect categories with at least three exposed cases were studied. Multiple logistic regression was used to control for potential confounders.

A positive family history of craniosynostosis [odds ratio (OR) 19.01 and 95% confidence interval (CI) 2.24-160.7] and using clomiphene citrate for infertility (OR 12.71 and 95% CI 1.42-113.6) were the strongest independent risk factors for craniosynostosis. More comprehensive studies with a larger sample size are required to confirm the role of environmental factors in order to decrease the occurrence of craniosynostosis.

Ovarian drilling was successfully employed without any surgical complications and mean +/- S.D. duration of follow-up time was 29.73 +/- 10.64 months. In the follow-up period 93.3% of the subjects were recorded to have regular cycles and 64.4% pregnancy rate was achieved, spontaneously. The serum levels of T, free T, LH, LH:FSH ratio, insulin and FG scores were significantly reduced after LOD, although glucose levels and glucose/insulin ratio remained unchanged.

A good blood supply to the endometrium is usually considered as an essential requirement for implantation.
The risks of multiple pregnancy and ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) are increased in women with clomiphene resistance WHO group 2 dysfunction undergoing ovulation induction as well as the risk of spontaneous abortion if conception takes place. Semi-purified preparations of FSH have been developed in an effort to reduce the impact of exogenous LH, relatively high levels of which are present in human menopausal gonadotropin (hMG). Ovulation induction in women with clomiphene resistant WHO group 2 dysfunction who often have clinical features of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), is a major challenge. The risks of multiple pregnancy and ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) are increased in this population. There also appears to be an increased risk of spontaneous abortion in those who conceive, perhaps associated with elevated LH levels. Semi-purified preparations of FSH have been developed in an effort to reduce the impact of exogenous LH, relatively high levels of which are present in human menopausal gonadotrophins.

No overall excess risk of invasive ovarian cancer emerged compared with the general population. In women with gonadotropin treatment for non-ovulatory disorders, the risk was elevated (standardized incidence ratio [SIR] = 5.89; 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.91-13.75); four of the five cases reported hCG treatment only, rendering the biological plausibility uncertain. Multivariate analysis within the cohort indicated that treatment with gonadotropins only was associated with an increased risk of invasive cancer (relative risk = 5.28; 95% CI 1.70-16.47). For borderline tumors, a more than threefold overall increase of tumors (SIR = 3.61; 95% CI 1.45-7.44) was noted; women exposed to clomiphene because of ovulatory disorders showed the highest risk (SIR = 7.47; 95% CI 1.54-21.83).
