Short description:
Kamphuis and colleagues analysed the overuse of in vitro fertilisation (IVF) treatment, focusing on the newer indications. The incidence of unexplained subfertility as an indication for IVF has undoubtedly increased, but why? With cited incidences being based on registries from Western countries, the most likely reason is the increase in female childbearing age and ovarian senescence in older women presenting as unexplained subfertility
