Influence of Obesity on Medically Assisted Reproduction Techniques

Araujo Catia , Baptista Carla , Paiva Isabel , Cortesao Paulo , Martins Ferreira Mafalda

Introduction: Evidence has suggested a relationship between female obesity and the outcomes of medically assisted reproduction techniques (MRT); however, the evidence regarding male obesity is still scarce and discordant. Aim: Evaluate the influence of female and male obesity on the results of MRT.Materials and methods: Retrospective analysis of 2159 couples, with and without obesity, submitted to the first treatment of medically a...

Influence of polycystic ovary syndrome on in vitro fertilization and relationship with the Asn680Ser polymorphism in FSHR gene

Vieira Ines , Filipa Ferreira Ana , Carvalho Alexandra , Dias Conceicao , Fernandes Silvana , Rodrigues Dircea , Cortesao Paulo , Almeida Santos Teresa , Paiva Isabel

Introduction: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a frequent cause of infertility. Its influence on the results of in vitro fertilization (IVF) is controversial, and generally not isolated from the effect of obesity. A relationship between the FSH receptor (FSHR) polymorphism Asn680Ser and the risk and phenotype of PCOS has been studied with conflicting results.Objectives: To analyze the influence of obesity and PCOS on the gonadal axis...

Turner syndrome and reproductive counseling

Vicente Nuno , Lopes Helena , Couto Daniela , Cortesao Paulo , Sousa Paula , Barros Luisa , Bastos Margarida , Carrilho Francisco , Santos Teresa Almeida

Introduction: Spontaneous fertility in Turner syndrome (TS) is rare, due to low or absent ovarian reserve. A greater number of ovarian follicules is present in the cases of gonadal mosaicism, although the accelerated pace of apoptosis remains. Thus, the early referral to reproductive counseling is advisable, ideally soon after diagnosis. The criopreservation of oocytes is one of the options for fertility preservation. The authors present a series of 7 patients with TS admitted...

In Vitro Fertilization in Polycystic Ovary Syndrome: Treatment Individualization Based on Genetic Singularities

Carreira Ana , Vieira Ines , Reis Sandra , Carvalho Alexandra , Dias Conceicao , Fernandes Silvana , Ferreira Ana , Rodrigues Dircea , Sousa Ana , Ramalho-Santos Joao , Cortesao Paulo , Almeida-Santos Teresa , Ramalhinho Ana , Moura-Ramos Mariana , Melo Miguel , Paiva Isabel

Introduction: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common causes of anovulatory infertility. Polymorphisms in genes related to follicular recruitment and development, such as the follicle-stimulating hormone receptor (FSHR) and the oestrogen receptor 1 (ESR1) genes, and their impact on biochemical phenotype and response to controlled ovarian stimulation in women with PCOS have been studied in different populations, with inconsistent results.<p class="abstext...
