IVF improving but fertility treatments keep multiple births high
More than one in three twin births and three of four births of triplets or more in the United States arise from fertility treatments, according to new estimates published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Although in-vitro fertilization (IVF) practices have improved to produce fewer triplets or higher-order births than at peak, multiples from non-IVF treatments continue unabated. (2013-12-04)

When she says, 'It's not you, it's me,' it really might be you, UCLA study suggests
Long after women have chosen Mr. Stable over Mr. Sexy, they struggle subconsciously with the decision, suggests a new study from UCLA researchers who look at subtle, unconscious behaviors during ovulation.

Balancing fertility and child survival in the developing world
Children in smaller families are only slightly more likely to survive childhood in high mortality environments, according to a new study of mothers and children in sub-Saharan Africa seeking to understand why women, even in the highest fertility populations in world, rarely give birth to more than eight children.

Yale researcher discovers 'brain temperature tunnel'
Yale researcher M. Marc Abreu, M.D., has identified an area of the brain he calls the brain temperature tunnel, which transmits brain temperature to an area of skin and has the potential to prevent death from heat stroke and hypothermia, and detect infectious diseases such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS).

Low-dose oral contraceptives are as protective against ovarian cancer as are older, high-dose pills, find University of Pittsburgh researchers
Low-dose contraceptives currently on the market are just as effective as the older, high-dose preparations in protecting women from ovarian cancer, according to investigators from the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health (GSPH) in a paper published in the August 1 issue of the American Journal of Epidemiology.

This is your brain on estrogen
Now, researchers reporting in the October Cell Metabolism, a Cell Press publication, have traced those hormonal effects on metabolism to different parts of the brain. The findings may lead to the development of highly selective hormone replacement therapies that could be used to combat obesity or infertility in women without the risks for heart disease and breast cancer, the researchers say.

Nerve and muscle activity vary across menstrual cycle
Nerve fibers, and the muscles they control, behave differently at different points along the menstrual cycle, potentially making women more vulnerable to knee injuries. Presentation is part of the Integrative Biology of Exercise VI meeting, co-sponsored by the American Physiological Society. (2012-10-11)

New USAID cooperative agreement with the Population Council facilitates contraceptive development
The Population Council was awarded a cooperative agreement from the US Agency for International Development's Office of Population and Reproductive Health, (2013-12-09)

Oral contraceptives increase C-reactive protein, an infIammatory biomarker
C-reactive protein (CRP) is a protein in the body whose level increases when blood vessels become inflamed. Measuring cardiovascular risk is thought to be possible by assessing CRP levels. Previously published data has shown that blood levels of CRP are elevated many years before a first heart attack or stroke occurs. Accordingly, a team of researchers set out to investigate the association between current low-dose oral contraceptives and levels of plasma CRP. (2003-04-09)

First West Coast baby born using frozen egg technique
University Fertility Consultants at the Oregon Health & Science University have successfully frozen human eggs that have resulted in the birth of a baby boy. This is the first known birth from this technique on the West Coast, and one of only about 25 nationwide. (2003-07-10)

Dopamine agonist can prevent ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome in IVF patients
A class of drug widely used in a number of gynaecological conditions can prevent ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS), an infrequent but serious complication of assisted reproduction treatments, a scientist told the 22nd annual conference of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology in Prague, Czech Republic on Wednesday 21 June 2006. (2006-06-21)

Diet and lifestyle changes may help prevent infertility from ovulatory disorders
Women who followed a combination of five or more lifestyle factors, including changing specific aspects of their diets, experienced more than 80 percent less relative risk of infertility due to ovulatory disorders compared to women who engaged in none of the factors, according to a paper published in the Nov. 1, 2007, issue of Obstetrics & Gynecology.

Adults lack stem cells for making new eggs
Mammalian females ovulate periodically over their reproductive lifetimes, placing significant demands on their ovaries for egg production. Whether mammals generate new eggs in adulthood using stem cells has been a source of scientific controversy. If true, these (2013-04-29)

Nitric oxide could extend fertility
Researchers have found that an important chemical compound, nitric oxide, appears to slow or reverse the aging of eggs in mouse ovaries. The finding suggests nitric oxide could one day help women in their 30s and 40s remain fertile longer and increase their chances of having healthy babies, the scientists say. The finding, by investigators at Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit, was published in the Aug. 30 issue of Biochemistry, an American Chemical Society journal. (2005-09-07)

Rhythm gene discovered
University of Utah biologists found a gene that controls rhythmic events in a worm's life: swallowing food, laying eggs and pooping. The same of related genes may control rhythmic behaviors in humans and other animals. (2005-10-06)

Successful birth to woman with re-implanted ovarian tissue after infertility from chemotherapy
A 32-year-old Belgian woman has given birth to a healthy baby 7 years after banking her ovarian tissue before starting chemotherapy for Hodgkin's lymphoma. Although she became infertile as a result of the chemotherapy, re-implantation of her ovarian tissue re-started ovulation 5 months later; she became pregnant 11 months after re-transplantation by natural fertilization. Details of the procedure appear in a research article published online by The Lancet at 0001 H Friday 24 September UK time. (2004-09-23)

Behavioural therapy can restore ovulation in infertile women
Fertility can be restored in some women by the use of behavioural therapy, thus avoiding recourse to expensive medicines and complex procedures, a scientist told the 22nd annual conference of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology in Prague, Czech Republic, onTuesday 20 June 2006.
