Is it the number of research papers published? Is it the number of lectures delivered? Is it the position in the medical society?
Pregnancy rate can be increased by denying treatment to all who are likely to have more failures like eldely, tb, severe endometriosis, etc
No, you can cut, paste and publish articles as many as you want. how many are path breaking.how many have got noble prize.
Well,those who can do will do others will give lectures………….. like me.
Well …politics is bad every where? Who suffers ….the patient.
Couples with infertility problem should be interviewed separately as well as together, to bring out important facts that one partner might not wish to disclose to the other. Full history taking of both partners usually denotes the underlying problem
Full clinical examination of both partners usually stands for the underlying physical problem. By the end of this step, most of healthcare professionals will be able to sketch out their provisional diagnosis. Investigations will be requested to prove the clinical diagnosis and to exclude other close possibilities.
Many infertile couples have had some previous assessment for their infertility and this data should be cautiously reviewed. Further investigations may be requested according to the clinical presentation and the results of preliminary tests. Omitting unnecessary investigations, in particular couples, could reduce total cost of their infertility management without compromising their success rate.
A woman who has no history suggestive of previous pelvic inflammatory disease or endometriosis, there is no justification to request a laparoscopy especially after normal hysterosalpingography study. Similarly, there is no need for testing tubal patency for couples who will require IVF or ICSI procedure.

1-Testes which have an established correlation with pregnancy. 2- Testes which are not consistently correlated with pregnancy. 3-Testes which seem not to correlate with pregnancy. ESHRE Capri workshop 2000
Tests which have an established correlation with pregnancy are: 1- Semen analysis 2-Tubal patency by HSG or laparoscopy 3-Mid luteal progesterone for the diagnosis of ovulation National Guideline Clearinghouse 2000 RCOG Guidelines : Grade B Recommendation 1999
Testes which are not consistently correlated with pregnancy as. Zona-free hamster egg penetration tests. Post coital test. Antisperm antibodies assays. ESHRE Capri workshop 2000 RCOG Guidelines : Grade B Recommendation 1999
Includes tests which seem not to correlate with pregnancy as: Endometrial dating. Varicocele assessment. Chlamydial testing. May have a role in special situations ESHRE Capri workshop 2000
Hysteroscopy. U/S scan of the endomerium. Are not recommended in the routine. Investigation of the infertile couple. RCOG Guidelines : Grade C Recommendation
There is no value in measuring thyroid function or prolactin in women with a regular menstrual cycle, in the absence of galactorrhoea or symptoms of thyroid disease. RCOG Guidelines : Grade B Recommendation 2001
D3 (FSH) and (E2)estradiol for patients >35 years. because of their reduced window of fertility potential. Bloomington: Institute for Clinical Systems Improvement (ICSI); 2000 The National Guideline Clearinghouse.Modified 2002
Serial semen samples (at least two) should be assessed in the same laboratory The lower limit of the normal semen testing is > 15 million/mL. >30% progressive motility >4% normal forms WHO,2010
In a RCT, the determination of motility characteristics as obtained by computer-assisted sperm analysis (CASA ) systems is of limited value. (Krause,1995 ). CASA is not superior to conventional semen analysis. RCT= Randomized control trial
Testicular biopsy should be performed only in the context of a tertiary service where there are facilities for sperm recovery and cryostorage RCOG Guidelines :Grade C Recommendation
General Advice Weight loss if BMI > 30, Women should give up smoking (B). Men should give up smoking (C) RCOG Guidelines Regular intercourse throughout the cycle, rather than the use of temperature charts and LH detection (C)
Gonadotrophin is effective for treatment for male hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism. However, drug treatments are ineffective in the treatment of idiopathic male infertility. RCOG Guidelines : Grade B Recommendation
IUI offers couples with male subfertility benefit over timed intercourse, both in natural cycles and in cycles with COH. Mild ovarian hyperstimulation with gonadotrophins is advised in cases with less severe semen defects (motile sperm concentration > 10 million). Cohlen et al., January 1999 (Cochrane Review). In: The Cochrane Library, Issue Oxford: Update Software. Oligo/asthenospermia
Intrauterine insemination with or without ovarian stimulation is an effective treatment where the man has abnormalities of semen quality, but it has to be remembered that the pregnancy rates even after treatment remain very low (A)(A) Cohlen et al., January 1999 (Cochrane Review). In: The Cochrane Library, Issue Oxford: Update Software. Oligo/asthenospermia
Varicocele treatment should be offered when all of the following are present: 1. A varicocele is palpable. 2. The couple has documented infertility. 3. The female has normal fertility or potentially correctable infertility. 4. The male partner has one or more abnormal semen parameters. Baltimore (MD): American Urological Association, Inc.; 2001 Apr. 9 p. [15 :National Guideline Clearinghouse modified 2002
Vasectomy reversal and surgical correction of epididymal blockage (microsurgical)can be considered in cases of obstructive azoospermia. It needs Expert hands. RCOG Guidelines : Grade B Recommendation
Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is indicated in Severe deficits in semen quality Obstructive azoospermia. Non-obstructive azoospermia. Previous IVF cycle with failed or very poor fertilisation. RCOG Guidelines : Grade A Recommendation
Clomiphene C. is an effective treatment for anovulation in appropriately selected women.(A) (Mild to moderate WHO type 1 T type 2 dysfunction) Up to 12 cycles of treatment should be considered (B). RCOG Guidelines
FSH and hMG are both effective for ovulation induction in women with clomiphene resistant polycystic ovarian syndrome. RCOG Guidelines : Grade A Recommendation
There is no advantage in routinely using GRh analogues in conjunction with gonadotrophins for ovulation induction in women with clomiphene-resistant PCOS RCOG Guidelines : Grade A Recommendation
Dopamine agonists are effective treatment for women with anovulation due to hyperprolactinaemia RCOG Guidelines : Grade A Recommendation
Laparoscopic ovarian drilling with either diathermy or laser is an effective treatment for anovulation in women with clomiphene-resistant PCOS RCOG Guidelines : Grade A
There is insufficient evidence of a difference in pregnancy rates between : Laparoscopic ovarian drilling after 6-12 m follow up & Gonadotrophins 3-6 cycles. Multiple pregnancy are considerably reduced after laparoscopic drilling.. Farquhar et al., August 2001 (Cochrane Review). In: The Cochrane Library, Issue Oxford: Update Software.
Surgical ablation of minimal And mild endometriosis improves fertility in subfertile women RCOG Guidelines : Grade A Recommendation
Also, ovarian stimulation with IUI is more effective for them than either no treatment or IUI alone. RCOG Guidelines : Grade A Recommendation
Surgical treatment may improve fertility but controlled studies and comparisons with assisted reproduction techniques are required (B). RCOG Guidelines : Grade B Recommendation
Hormonal therapy for ovulation suppression cannot be recommended as a standard therapy for endometriosis- associated infertility. So drug treatments don ’ t improve conception rate. Hughes et al., 1996 (Cochrane Review). In: The Cochrane Library, Issue Oxford: Update Software. RCOG Guidelines : Grade A Recommendation
Microsurgical tubal surgery may be appropriate for : Mild distal tubal disease ( Laparoscopy). Proximal tubal obstruction, or Re-anastomosis to reverse sterilization. If pregnancy has not occurred within 12 m of surgery, IVF should be discussed. RCOG Guidelines : Grade B Recommendation
Micro scissor Cutting fimbrial band Cutting fimbrio- omental band Dissection of fimbriae adherent to the uterus
Where proximal tubal obstruction is suspected, and there are no other tubal abnormalities, a tubal catheterisation procedure may be attempted RCOG Guidelines : Grade B Recommendation
Bilateral Cornual Block Amorphous material R. Ovary R. fimbria Cornual catheterization
. IVF should be considered as the first line treatment for moderate to severe distal tubal disease RCOG Guidelines : Grade B Recommendation
Laparoscopic salpingectomy should be considered for all women with hydrosalpinges prior to IVF treatment Johnson et al., March 2002 (Cochrane Review). In: The Cochrane Library, Issue Oxford: Update Software.
Expectant management (no treatment) for up to three years of trying should be considered, taking into consideration the woman's age. RCOG Guidelines : GradeC Recommendation
