Deciphering the complex relationship between systemic inflammation and fecundity in eumenorrheic women
To date, the general belief is that some degree of systemic or uterine inflammation is essential for normal function of the ovary, uterus, embryo, implantation, and pregnancy (1). However, it is also believed that when inflammation becomes too excessive or chronic, degradation of the embryo and impaired implantation could result. In this issue of Fertility and Sterility, Radin and colleagues investigated the relationship of high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), a marker of chronic low-grade inflammation, to fecundability and anovulation in healthy, regularly menstruating women (2).
