Human Papillomavirus Infection in Couples Undergoing in Vitro Fertilization Procedures: Impact on Reproductive Outcomes

Antonio Perino et al. Fertil Steril. .

Abstract

A prospective study was performed to assess the relationship between human papillomavirus (HPV) infection in 199 infertile couples and outcome of assisted reproductive technologies (ARTs). A highly statistically significant correlation between pregnancy loss rate (proportion of pregnancies detected by β-hCG that did not progress beyond 20 weeks) and positive HPV DNA testing in the male partner of infertile couples, compared with HPV negatives, was observed (66.7% vs. 15%).
