Cooney co-authors article on live birth rates and PCOS in Fertility and Sterility

Laura Cooney, MD, assistant professor in the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, is the lead author on a new study published in Fertility and Sterility.

The details matter: personalized prediction of live birth following in vitro fertilization in women with polycystic ovary syndrome” is a multicenter, retrospective cohort study attempting to validate a prediction model for live birth for women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) undergoing in vitro fertilization treatment.

“Our study demonstrates that in addition to anovulation, the underlying pathophysiology and associated co-morbidities alter the likelihood of a successful pregnancy in women with PCOS undergoing IVF. Further validation of this model is needed before it, can serve as a tool to personalize prediction estimates for probability of live birth in women with PCOS.”
