Bisphenol A (BPA) is an endocrine disruptor with estrogenic properties that can adversely affect meiotic spindle assemblies. Our data indicate that BPA exposure in female patients may interfere with oocyte quality during IVF, as suggested by the inverse association between serum unconjugated BPA concentration and normal fertilization.
