Odds of Pregnancy in IVF Same With Frozen or Fresh Embryos: Study

Odds of Pregnancy in IVF Same With Frozen or Fresh Embryos: StudyFRIDAY, Aug. 7, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- Whether a frozen or fresh embryo is transferred during fertility treatments, the odds of pregnancy are roughly the same, according to a new Danish study involving nearly 500 women. Fresh embryo transfer, however, should still be the gold standard in assisted reproduction for women, the research team said. There was one exception to that rule, however: Women who are at risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome -- a painful response to the use of excess hormones in fertility treatments. Using only frozen embryos (a "freeze-all" strategy) during procedures such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) has become more common, noted researchers led by Sacha Stormlund, of the fertility clinic at Hvidovre University Hospital, in Copenhagen. But the new...

Men`s Genital Bacteria Help Predict Partners` Risk for Vaginal Infection: StudyTHURSDAY, Aug. 6, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- The makeup of bacteria that colonize a man's penis can help predict the risk of a serious and hard-to-treat vaginal infection in his female partner, new research suggests. Bacterial vaginosis, also known as BV, can lead to problems in pregnancy and make a woman more vulnerable to several sexually transmitted diseases. More than 20% of women worldwide get BV. For this study, researchers tracked 168 couples and found that women whose partner had BV-related bacteria on their penis were more likely to develop BV within a year. "Our results show that penile bacteria can accurately predict new cases of BV in women who did not have BV to begin with, up to six to 12 months in the future," said lead author Supriya Mehta. "This is important, because...

Will Your Kid Play School Sports This Fall? Here`s Some Guidance on Doing It SafelyTHURSDAY, Aug. 6, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- If you're thinking about letting your child resume sports while the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage, a leading pediatricians' group says there are a few things you should consider. To help families make informed decisions, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recently released guidance based on the most current research. "We recommend that parents talk to their pediatrician about the type of sport and setting, local disease activity, and individual circumstances, such as an underlying health condition that places the athlete or family members at high risk," Dr. Susannah Briskin, one of the guidance authors, said in an AAP news release. "The risk can be decreased, but not eliminated, by athletes, parents, coaches and officials who...

Mysterious Paralyzing Illness in Kids Is Set to Return, CDC WarnsTUESDAY, Aug. 4, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- A new outbreak of a mysterious, potentially fatal polio-like illness could strike hundreds of American children within the next few months, U.S. health officials warned Tuesday. Acute flaccid myelitis (AFM) outbreaks have occurred every two years in the United States since 2014, peaking between August and November, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said. More than 9 of 10 cases occur in children. More than half of AFM cases wind up in intensive care, and nearly 1 in 4 require a ventilator to survive after their muscles grow too weak to adequately draw breath, according to a review of the 2018 outbreak published Aug. 4 in the CDC's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. "AFM is a medical emergency that requires immediate...

U.S. Grandparents Are Raising Millions of Kids, and It`s ToughTUESDAY, Aug. 4, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- Nearly 3 million children in the United States are being raised by grandparents, and life has placed these kids on a rocky road toward adulthood, a new study reports. These children are much more likely to have experienced traumatic events that will influence their development, according to the report published online Aug. 3 in the journal Pediatrics. For example, children in grandparent-led households are six times more likely to have had a parent or guardian serve time in jail, and four times more likely to have lived with someone who has a drug or alcohol problem, the researchers found. By school age (6 to 17 years), these kids are almost twice as likely to be diagnosed with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and they are...
