  1. 1. Women's experience of pain and pain relief in assisted reproductive technology

    Author : Ann-Louise Gejervall; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : oocyte retrieval; pain relief; randomized controlled trial; pain; fertilization rate; embryo development; Visual Analogue Scale;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to evaluate and compare different methods for pain relief during oocyte retrieval and to study women’s expectations and experiences of pain during oocyte retrieval in conjunction with in vitro fertilization. Paper I, an open prospective randomized controlled trial, including 160 women had the primary aims of comparing the pain relieving effects of electro-acupuncture and conventional analgesia, comprising opiates, in conjunction with oocyte retrieval, and to compare post-operative well-being between groups.

    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ecosystem services; land use change; management practices; fertilization; irrigation; water quality; and smallholder; naturgeografi; Physical Geography;

    Abstract : Land use change has major impact on the world’s wetland ecosystems and biodiversity. The motivation behind this change has been to increase agricultural production, often resulting in negative effects on water quality and soil fertility. READ MORE

  3. 3. Cumulative Live Birth Rates after In Vitro Fertilization

    Author : Catharina Olivius; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : in vitro fertilization; cumulative live birth; single embryo transfer; frozen-thawed cycle; discontinuation;

    Abstract : Background: In vitro fertilization (IVF) has become increasingly common, today representing about 3% of all live births in some countries. Most patients have to undergo more than one treatment in order to achieve a live birth. Thus cumulative live birth rates are highly interesting to the patients. READ MORE
