Background

The Cochrane Gynaecology and Fertility Group (CGF) (formerly the Menstrual Disorders and Subfertility Group) is concerned with the systematic evaluation of the management and treatment of menstrual disorders and subfertility. It combines the work of two previous groups: the Menstrual Disorders Group was registered in August 1995 after an exploratory meeting in June 1995, and merged with the Subfertility Group in June 1997.  

In January 2018 CGF established a new satellite in collaboration with the Academic Medical Center of the University of Amsterdam. The satellite has started off with gathering, evaluating, and disseminating reviews on the effectiveness and safety of interventions in subfertile women undergoing intrauterine insemination and in women with polycystic ovary syndrome. The Netherlands Satellite is under the direction of Dr Madelon van Wely, who is a clinical epidemiologist and a long-serving editor with CGF.
