Searching for Sterility Origin - Online Course


The num­ber of women and couples ac­ces­sing as­sis­ted re­pro­duc­ti­ve te­ch­no­logy (ART) is in­crea­sing every year, pri­ma­rily be­cau­se pa­rent­hood has been post­po­ned.

The eva­lua­tion and ma­na­ge­ment of in­fer­ti­lity has chan­ged subs­tan­tia­lly over the past ten to fif­teen years. Se­ve­ral tests, pro­ven to be of li­mi­ted value in the study of pa­tients, have been dis­car­ded and re­pla­ced by newer and more ef­fec­ti­ve tests, while sig­ni­fi­cant ad­van­ces have been made in ul­tra­sound eva­lua­tion. In ad­di­tion, there have been ad­van­ces in the sur­gi­cal ap­proach to pat­ho­lo­gies re­la­ted to ste­ri­lity, which have led to a grea­ter use of en­dos­copy and less in­va­si­ve te­ch­ni­ques.

Cli­ni­cians who treat pa­tients with in­fer­ti­lity face se­ve­ral cha­llen­ges in se­lec­ting the ap­pro­pria­te diag­nos­tic and treat­ment op­tions for both their male and fe­ma­le pa­tients. Some of the op­tions, par­ti­cu­larly when re­la­ted to ad­van­ced ma­ter­nal age or low res­pon­ders, are not well-known among gy­ne­co­lo­gists and pri­mary care phy­si­cians. Also, among gy­ne­co­lo­gists and PCPs there is still not a clear un­ders­tan­ding re­gar­ding the pre­ci­se in­di­ca­tions of treat­ment in male/fe­ma­le in­fer­ti­lity and some pat­ho­lo­gies, such as in the case of ade­nom­yo­sis.

This edu­ca­tion pro­gram has been de­ve­lo­ped to help cli­ni­cians bet­ter diag­no­se and treat ste­ri­lity.
