28 August 2017 by Jamie Rickman

A protein that controls removal of male reproductive tissue in female mice embryos has been discovered. 

The protein is critical to the correct growth of the female reproductive system, and overturns the longstanding theory that development of the female reproductive system is a passive process which spontaneously occurs when the male hormone androgen is not present.

News: NHS cutbacks worsen IVF 'postcode lottery' in England

14 August 2017 by Dr Kimberley Bryon-Dodd

Funding cuts by the UK's NHS has meant that 13 areas in England have restricted or halted IVF treatment since the start of 2017, according to Fertility Network UK.

A further eight areas are consulting on taking similar measures, and the situation is worsening says the charity which monitors IVF provision. These cuts amount to a 'postcode lottery' said regional co-ordinator Anya Sizer to Sky News.

NICE recommends that three full cycles of IVF are offered to women under 40 who have not become pregnant after trying to conceive for two years. Currently, only 27 of England's 207 CCGs (Clinical Commissioning Groups) meet this guidance.
