Wednesday 20 January at 14:00, Julie Lyngsø defends her PhD dissertation entitled "The Impact of Lifestyle Factors on the Success of Medically Assisted Reproduction".  

Infertility is a major public health issue affecting one in six couples during their reproductive lifetimes. Thus, an increasing number of people seek fertility treatment. The treatments carry not only great socioeconomic costs but also have both physical and psychosocial consequences for each woman and man. Most factors involved in the complex chain of human reproduction are non-modifiable by the woman herself. Thus, identification of modifiable lifestyle factors that potentially influence human reproduction is of both clinical and public health importance. The PhD project investigated whether coffee and alcohol consumption as well as cigarette smoking was associated with achieving a clinical pregnancy and a live birth among Danish women and couples receiving fertility treatment.    

The summary is written by the PhD student.    

The defence is public and takes place online via Zoom. Please read the attached press release for more information.
