Welcome to the July – September 2022 issue of the Journal of Human Reproductive Sciences. It comes with an informative mixture of a review article, original articles and case reports.

The review article by Alahmar et al., provides an overview of the current understanding of sperm DNA fragmentation and its implications for male factor infertility. The study in Wistar rats by Khan assesses the impact of oxidative stress on sperm count, motility, vitality and morphology. In another study in Wistar rats, Aledani et al., explore the possible protective effect of montelukast on the occurrence of delayed puberty following treatment with cholesterol reducing agents. A case-control study by Ray et al., looks at the association between global DNA methylation in peripheral leucocytes and PCOS in an attempt to address the epigenetic factors involved in PCOS. In a retrospective cohort study Sharma et al., have identified certain gene mutations in the steroid biosynthesis pathway in women with PCOS. Pradhan et al., in a cross-sectional study address the metabolic and hormonal abnormalities in first degree relatives of women with PCOS.

Banerjee et al., in a multi-centre cross-sectional study, have addressed possible association with certain lifestyle factors and serum AMH levels in infertile women. In a retrospective cohort study by Sarkar et al., the authors found no difference in the cumulative live birth rate following intrauterine insemination in women with minimal or mild endometriosis when compared to those with unexplained infertility.

Khurana et al., evaluate the clinical utility of progesterone primed ovarian stimulation protocol in oocyte donors in a cohort study and report it to be a cost-effective and patient-friendly alternative to antagonist protocol. Gunasheela et al., have shown a strong correlation between number oocytes retrieved and the cumulative live birth in women below and above 35 years of age in a cohort study. Its retrospective nature is a limitation of the study. Reddy et al., in a retrospective cohort study report on the long-term safety of embryo cryopreservation. Shukr et al., report an ergonomic and easily reproducible entry point for laparoscopy in the left upper quadrant, when intraperitoneal adhesions are suspected.

Kouvidi et al., report two cases of de la Chapelle syndrome and provide a valuable literature review of the syndrome. Pritti et al., describe a case of mosaic ring Turner's syndrome, a rare subtype of Turner's syndrome. Kalampokas et al., in a case report, provide a stepwise surgical approach for laparoscopic management of a cornual pregnancy.
