Featured Article

Vaginal cuff dehiscence following controlled ovarian stimulation recognized during egg retrieval

Vaginal cuff dehiscence is a rare complication of hysterectomy. Those who choose to undergo controlled ovarian stimulation (COS) and oocyte cryopreservation following hysterectomy must be aware that elevated abdominal pressure from stimulation as well as transvaginal ultrasound use during monitoring may increase the risk of cuff dehiscence.

Fertility Research and Practice is a peer-reviewed, open access, online journal, publishing articles that provide novel insights into male and female infertility and early pregnancy. Read more

Fertility Research and Practice is affiliated with the CROWN initiative, Core Outcomes in Women’s Health. CROWN is an international initiative, led by journal editors, to harmonise outcome reporting in women’s health research. We are coming together to address the widespread, unwarranted variation in reporting of outcomes. CROWN’s main aim is to encourage researchers to report core outcome sets for key conditions in women’s health.
