There are several potential causes for bleeding during pregnancy, and many doctors believe some bleeding is normal. If you experience bleeding during pregnancy, it is best to inform your doctor right away to rule out major complications.

Gene Mutation Causes Male Infertility

Bionews,  Oct 18, 2012

Research teams in Australia and Britain have discovered a gene mutation that impacts sperm motilityin mice.

Male mice with the RABL2 gene mutation demonstrated no outward signs of impaired fertility, though their sperm had 17 percent shorter tails than those without the mutation. This causes a problem for conception, as the sperm are not equipped to swim long enough to reach and fertilize the female egg.

New Treatment Restores Ovulation

Science Daily,  Oct 17, 2012

A study published by the Journal of Clinical Investigation has found that a hormone released by neurons in the brain may restore ovulation when used as a fertility treatment for prolactin-induced anovulation.

Prolactin is the hormone responsible for milk production and has been dubbed a “natural birth control” for breastfeeding women. However, high levels of prolactin, or hyperprolactinemia, is undesirable in women trying to conceive. In both of these instances, prolactin inhibits ovulation.

New Embryo Monitoring Technology Increases IVF Success Rates

Herald Online,  Oct 16, 2012

A study to be published by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) in the journal Fertility and Sterility indicates that a breakthrough technology may significantly increase in vitro fertilization (IVF) success rates.

The world’s largest multi-center fertility clinic, Equipo IVI, used the clinically certified EmbryoScope® Time-lapse System to culture and select embryos- a procedure that improved success rates up to 20 percent.

An article published by PLoS ONE suggests inhibiting the PTEN molecule, a cell-growth regulator, can cause immature eggs to mature.

Researchers led by Professor Kui Liu at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden have recently discovered that a chemical PTEN inhibitor can aid in healthy egg growth by shutting off the mechanism that naturally regulates cell growth.
