It is almost 18 month since the first case of covid − Sars 2 was detected. Till date millions of cases have being reported worldwide. The devastating effect of this pandemic has affected the lives of both the rich and the poor alike, destroyed world economies and challenged the whole medical fraternity. To fight this pandemic both researchers and scientists are struggling hard to find out the ways and means to control the morbidity and mortality, laying down recommendations and guidelines and now speeding the availability of a safe and effective vaccine against covid − SARS 2. The editorial in this issue is focusing on some of the problems and solutions in post covid scenario. One such issue is the prevailing confusion amongst patients as well as health care providers regarding vaccination and ART treatment. In this context the recommendations on vaccinations made by Indian fertility societies are very helpful in clinical decision making.

This issue contains three review articles and 12 original research articles covering very wide spectrum on different bur clinically relevant topics. IUI is very simple and common intervention. An update on optimization of results is worth reading. Research article on debatable topics in embryology like PICSI and single vs double blastocyst are interesting and throw light on various aspects including comparative outcome of these procedures. Use of color dopplar in ART is gaining popularity but its right place in clinical practice is still not certain. Routine use of color dopplar to access receptivity and improve implantation prospects is common. The article on impact of color doplar in FET cycles is an extension of the quest to find out the right place of color doplar.

Effect of oxidative stress on male and female gametes is well known but measuring it is a tedious task and most of the literature focus on the effect instead. Assessment of oxidative stress in follicular fluid and its effect on ART outcome is an original study giving an insight on this interesting subject. Another debatable topic is flushing or no flushing during ovum pick up, as both approaches have pros and cons and hence a fresh look at the practice is need of hour.

Finally, as we approach the end of second wave of covid, and hope that before third wave starts with more mutations and variants, the vaccination drive will be augmented and will reach the masses in all across the glove to circumvent the effects of an anticipated third devastating wave. Till then all should continue to observe a covid appropriate behavior. It is also important that pooling of clinically relevant data on covid is initiated by various agencies and societies so as to help all clinician in managing their patients.
