November CHR VOICE Digest

November CHR VOICE Digest

As we are finalizing this issue of The VOICE, the country has established a new president-elect who will be inaugurated in January. By that time, it also appears increasingly likely, that the first anti-COVID-19 vaccines will come to the market and, hopefully, allow the country to return to some balance and normality. The year 2020, most definitely, will become unforgettable but, unfortunately, for all the wrong reasons.

Our lead article in this issue is an update on what should be known at the present time by everybody who is considering getting pregnant during the still ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Since we ended CHR’s COVID-19 Bulletins in August, an update appears appropriate. In this issue, we are also addressing two subjects that we receive constant queries about: How does our diet affect fertility? And, what does it mean if an IVF center reports unusually high miscarriage rates? Finally, after some distance from the last time we mentioned in these pages the hypo-androgenic PCOS-like syndrome (H-PCOS), we here again review some key features of this syndrome which mostly appears to be overlooked in most IVF centers. We, therefore, see more and more cases here at CHR. Finally, CHR’s Medical Director and Chief Scientist, Norbert Gleicher, MD, tells an unusual personal vignette with a happy ending about how he recently encountered the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

In this month's CHR VOICE, we cover:
