OBJECTIVE To assess the results of screening an unselected general infertility population for diminished ovarian reserve with the clomiphene citrate challenge test. METHODS Two hundred thirty-six couples were followed prospectively and studied for the relationship between clomiphene citrate challenge test screening and final diagnoses and long-term(More)
OBJECTIVE Pituitary suppression with a GnRH antagonist before IVF may result in a plateau or decrease in estradiol levels. We sought to investigate the effect of increasing recombinant FSH (rFSH) after starting a GnRH antagonist on estradiol levels, implantation rates, and pregnancy rates. DESIGN Prospective, randomized multicenter study. SETTING(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the possible impact that the duration of GnRH agonist (GnRH-a) suppression has on subsequent ovarian responsiveness to exogenous gonadotropins. DESIGN Prospective evaluation of the relationship between the duration of GnRH-a and multiple parameters of ovarian responsiveness. SETTING Assisted reproduction program in a large military(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the relative efficacies of leuprolide acetate (LA) and hCG in inducing ovulation and a normal luteal phase during clomiphene citrate (CC)-stimulated superovulation cycles. DESIGN Prospective, randomized, blinded, and cross-controlled in consecutive cycles. SETTING Large military tertiary care center. PATIENTS Twenty-one ovulatory(More)
To determine the distribution of results of an in-vitro cervical mucus penetration system employing both human and bovine mucus (Tru-Trax) in a general infertility population, 133 couples prospectively underwent in-vitro and post-coital testing of cervical mucus. The distribution of Tru-Trax results in couples with normal semen analyses and Insler scores(More)
