Pregnancies after infertility: prospectively collecting serum and consent for outcomes research in all women with history of infertility or recurrent miscarriage. Planned projects include evaluation of testosterone levels in relationship to fertility treatments, prospective study on pregnancy outcomes of women with PCOS compared to other women undergoing fertility treatments, miscarriage rates with different diagnoses and treatments.
Karyotypes of miscarriages: collecting karyotype information, ultrasound findings and clinical characteristics on patients miscarrying undergoing D&Cs. Over 350 karyotypes already entered. Objective: to evaluate subsequent pregnancy outcomes and utility of workup for recurrent pregnancy loss in setting of normal and abnormal karyotypes.
