Academic Journal
The article presents abstracts on the clinical aspects of female fertility, including the practice of embryo donation in French assisted reproductive technology (ART) centres, using three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound in assessing ovarian volume and the temporary suppressive effects of a gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) antagonist when used concurrently with potentially toxic doses of chemotherapeutic agents for protection of ovarian function, as well as the effect of infertility on the sexual function of women.
