Data from a recent analysis published in Acta Obstetricia et Gynecologica Scandinavica shed some light on how alcohol and caffeine consumption may impact fertility treatments. There are many different fertility treatment choices available to those who want to start families. However, a person’s lifestyle choices may have an impact on how well a certain reproductive treatment method […]
A study supports the association between COVID-19 vaccination and a lengthening of the menstrual cycle
Participants in a sizable NIH-funded study came from both North America and Europe. The results of a prior American study that connected COVID-19 vaccination with an average increase in menstrual cycle length of less than one day were supported by a sizable international study. The National Institutes of Health provided funding for the new study, […]
According to research, PMS is a major public health concern that affects women’s lives on a global scale
The researchers concluded that because at least 61% of women in all age groups reported experiencing mood-related symptoms every menstrual cycle, “premenstrual mood symptoms represent an important public health issue internationally.” In a recent survey, more than 64% of women worldwide report experiencing premenstrual symptoms at some point during each menstrual cycle, according to IANS.

A new prenatal test can speed up and save money when it comes to chromosomal anomalies
Details about the test which are awaiting authorization from the New York State Department of Health before it can be offered to Columbia patients and its performance was published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Prenatal genetic testing are currently available, but they are expensive and take days to weeks to complete; this adds […]
Bypassing the requirement for sperm, eggs, and fertilisation, Israeli scientists create the first “synthetic embryos” in history
The ability to induce mouse stem cells to self-assemble into structures resembling early embryos with a digestive tract, a developing brain, and a beating heart was found by scientists at the Weizmann Institute in Israel. Some cells underwent chemical pretreatment to activate genetic programmes that would drive them to develop into the yolk sac or […]
Metformin, a commonly used Diabetes drug has been linked to crucial birth defects
According to a new study recently released from Denmark, commonly used diabetes drugs have been linked to crucial birth defects in the offspring of male patients who were taking it ahead of the babies being conceived. Around 120 million people are said to have been prescribed the drug across the globe. Metformin is one the […]
How Covid-19 impacts male reproduction?
The virus can occasionally be identified in semen and may even directly bind to sperm cells, according to the evidence, which also implies that covid-19 infections can reduce sperm levels for months. According to the UNFPA Report published in July 2021, the number of births decreased by 3.0 percent in October, 5.0 percent in November, […]
Continuous sperm production is made possible by a newly discovered stem cell self-renewal factor
The discovery was documented in the publication Genes and Development. Men can continue to generate sperm throughout their adult life, in contrast to women who are born with all the eggs they will ever have. They must continually replenish the spermatogonial stem cells that give rise to sperm in order to do this. According to […]
Why does a woman’s fertility start to diminish in her 30s well before Menopause?
It has been demonstrated that utilising drugs that fight fibrosis and support mitochondrial health, ovarian ageing in mice can be reversed. Australian researchers have shown that when mice age, they develop higher amounts of ovarian fibrosis, which is brought on by mitochondrial failure, inflammation, and excessive collagen buildup. Reduced fertility results from the modifications, stiffening […]
Why is human reproduction such a challenge?
A new study by a researcher at the Milner Centre for Evolution at the University of Bath contends that “selfish chromosomes” are to blame for the early demise of the majority of human embryos. The discovery explains why human embryos frequently don’t survive while fish embryos do not have repercussions for managing infertility. It was […]
