Featured Journal: Iranian Journal of Reproductive Medicine Vol.11 No.8

Today we are featuring the Iranian Journal of Reproductive Medicine on the blog. 

One of the articles in vol.11 no.8, "Relationship between maternal periodontal disease and low birth weight babies" by Haerian-Ardakani et al., looks at the effect of periodontal disease during pregnancy and if periodontal disease affects the birth weight of the infant. For this study, 88 women were evaluated in hospitals in Yazd, Iran. Half of the women had babies with low birth weight, and the other half had babies weighing greater than 2500 g. Dental examinations were carried out on the 88 women up to three days after giving birth. The results indicated that women who gave birth to babies with low birth weights had more unhealthy areas of gingiva and more deep pockets.

This issue also includes "Pelvic abscess after oocyte retrieval in women with endometriosis: A case series" by Romero et al. This article looks at three case studies of tubo-ovarian abcesses in women between 2004 and 2011, after the oocyte retrieval process during in-vitro fertilization cycles. These tubo-ovarian abcesses occured despite antibiotic prophylaxis. The results indicated that antibiotic prophylaxis may or may not be necessary in women with endometriosis.
