False pregnancy or pseudocyesis
False pregnancy occurs in women who think they are pregnant. They can even notice the pregnancy symptoms, although they are not actually pregnant. There have also been cases of men who have experienced it.
Pregnancy in spite of translocation
A couple of first cousins has achieved a twin pregnancy after undergoing an embryo transfer with a single, healthy embryo chosen from a cohort of 25 oocytes removed from the woman after follicular puncture.
Ovulation induction in IVF
It is necessary that woman undergoes controlled ovarian hyperstimulation in order to obtain more oocytes which can be fertilised and to perform the in vitro fertilisation (IVF) treatment.
Disadvantages of LH
There are some risks of using the luteinising hormone as a medicine in assisted reproduction. Even though it is a safe medicine, it is advisable to know the alterations that may occur.
Problems of in vitro fertilisation
There are some problems associated with in vitro fertilisation, mainly due to the previous ovarian stimulation that women undergo, which may cause ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome and/or multiple births.
Advantages of LH
LH hormone is used in assisted reproduction treatments to achieve an adequate ovarian stimulation, so that there are more chances of pregnancy in the treatments.
Disadvantages of GnRH analogues
Although the gonadotropin releasing hormone analogues are widely used in assisted reproduction, their use as a medicine involves some risks.
Advantages of hCG
The use of medications containing hCG for ovulation induction therapy among women undergoing an assisted reproduction cycle may have some benefits if compared to other medications.
hCG indications for use
Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a sex hormone whose natural function in a woman's body occurs during the menstrual cycle. In addition, it is also administered as a medicine in assisted reproductive treatments.
Effects of hCG
The hCG hormone (human chorionic gonadotropin) is found naturally in women, although it is also used for ovulation induction in assisted reproductive treatments.
Advantages of FSH
Using medicines containing recombinant FSH has several advantages. Its main benefit is that, since it is a lab creation, it has a high degree of purity, which means it may be effective in smaller doses as well.
FSH indications for use
The FSH or follicle-stimulating hormone is a type of gonadotropic hormone used for ovulation induction in women undergoing assisted reproductive treatments.
