    New Products: FDA approves treatment for complicated UTI




    Updated glossary of infertility terms released

    A new consensus-based and evidence-based document published simultaneously in Fertility and Sterility (2017; 108:393-406) and Human Reproduction contains 283 terms used in infertility and fertility care. Last revised in 2009, the glossary has been enhanced and expanded to facilitate better communication among health professionals, scientists, patients, policy makers, and the public. Notable changes in this edition of the glossary include the term “subfertility,” which may now be used interchangeably with “infertility;” and the definition of infertility as “a disease characterized by the failure to establish a clinical pregnancy after 12 months of regular, unprotected sexual intercourse or due to an impairment of a person's capacity to reproduce either as an individual or with his/her partner. […] Infertility is a disease, which generates disability as an impairment of function.”
