Levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine device insertion ameliorates leiomyoma-dependent menorrhagia among women of reproductive age without a significant regression in the uterine and leiomyoma volumes

Fertility and Sterility
Mehmet Murat NakiMeliha Cebi


Levonorgestrel- (LNG) releasing intrauterine device (IUD) insertion revealed significant reduction in visual bleeding scores and spotting with an increase in amenorrhea and uterine pulsatility index scores. LNG-IUD can be considered as a simple and effective alternative to surgical treatment in the management of leiomyoma-dependent menorrhagia of reproductive-age women.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.
