Fertility Research & Practice is temporarily closed to new submissions due to Editorial Board absences that are impacting journal operations. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused. A notice will be posted once we are open for submissions again.
Fertility Research and Practice is seeking to appoint an Editor-in-Chief.
The newly appointed Editor-in-Chief will have full editorial responsibility for the content published in the Journal and for ensuring that the ethos, editorial standards, policies and scope of Fertility Research and Practice are maintained. They will also be responsible for providing strategic guidance and overseeing the commissioning of non-research content.
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.

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.
