Many women receiving chemotherapy face the prospect of premature menopause because the drugs destroy ovarian follicles. New research is helping to unlock the keys to use of AMHR2BP, a peptide that mimics anti-Müllerian hormone, to preserve fertility in these patients.
In vitro fertilization (IVF) has been vastly improved over the past few years with a transition to blastocyst state cryopreservation and transfer. Fertility experts Nina Desai, MD, and Elliot Richards, MD, share insights from the largest, prospective, randomized study to date of embryo development and live birth rates between sibling embryos cultured in two different single-step media.
ASRM has issued new recommendations for fertility care during the COVID-19 pandemic. Reproductive endocrinologist Stephen Mooney, MD, explains how we are implementing them to ensure the health of patients and the safety of gametes and embryos.
Cleveland Clinic researchers have identified three proteins in the seminal plasma of men with varicocele that can help serve as biomarkers in the diagnosis of fertility issues.

Infertility can be a complex disorder, but also highly treatable by primary care physicians in conjunction with fertility specialists or Ob/Gyns. This informative article covers which tests to order and when (and when not to), and discusses when a referral is indicated.
A study of women with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) who underwent bariatric surgery found they significantly lost weight, lowered their BMIs, reduced their ovary size and had more regular menstrual cycles.
Building on a history of transplant and reproductive surgery innovations, Cleveland Clinic performed the nation’s first uterus transplant, paving a multi-step path to potential motherhood for women affected by irreversible uterine infertility.
Examination of sperm function through proteomics has the potential to improve on conventional semen analysis in the workup of male infertility. Differentially expressed proteins may serve as novel biomarkers in the identification of bilateral varicocele and may help urologists identify better options for clinical management of infertile men.
Using proteomics, investigators identify key regulator of protein expression in sperm samples that are positive for reactive oxygen species
