Modified Natural Cycle IVF More Cost-Effective and Affordable than Traditional IVF

An cost and live birth analysis of 6 conventional IVF treatment strategies against 6 similar, corresponding strategies using modified natural cycle IVF showed significant savings with the latter method. This lowers the barriers of access, particularly for young couples who tend to have fewer resources, that may not be able to afford conventional fertility treatment.

Researchers may have found a clue to why some women experience hot flashes or night sweats and others don’t: gene variants affecting a brain receptor regulating estrogen release and is present across all ethnicities. It appears that women who have these variants are more likely to have hot flashes.

Resveratrol Can Help Correct Hormone Imbalance in Women with PCOS

Resveratrol—a natural compound found in red wine and grapes—can help address a hormone imbalance in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a leading cause of infertility in women, according to a new study published in the Endocrine Society’s Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.
