Animal model of C. Fertility Parameters Females were sacrificed on day 18 of gestation. Paediatrician Lars Almroth, from the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, and colleagues studied 99 infertile women and women who were pregnant for the first time, at two hospitals in Khartoum in Sudan. All the women in the study had undergone female genital mutilation FGM as girls, and they were examined to discover the extent of the mutilation.
