In a study on the influence of methotrexate (MTX) treatment on ovarian stimulation characteristics during the subsequent IVF cycle, 14 patients admitted to our department with the diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy and successfully treated with MTX were evaluated. No differences were observed in ovarian stimulation characteristics between the IVF cycle that had(More)
In an attempt to examine whether body mass index (BMI) may influence IVF outcome in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) patients undergoing ovarian stimulation with either gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRH)-agonist (agonist group) or antagonist (antagonist group), 100 IVF cycles were studied: 35 in the agonist and 65 in the antagonist groups. In both(More)
To examine whether day 3 LH level or FSH-LH ratio predict IVF outcome, we studied patients with a favorable prognosis a priori undergoing controlled ovarian hyperstimulation (COH) with GnRH agonist (agonist group; n = 131) or antagonist (antagonist group; n = 137). Although LH level could not predict IVF outcome, patients undergoing COH using the GnRH(More)
In a study of the possible inter-relationship among müllerian anomalies, hearing loss, and connexin 26 mutations, we evaluated all women in whom müllerian anomalies were diagnosed on hysterosalpingography during a 6-year period (n = 24/519). Audiometric testing revealed five (22.7%) with unrecognized sensorineural hearing loss; however, on genetic(More)
To examine whether and when conception may be achieved in multiple repeated in vitro fertilization cycles, we surveyed the outcome of 2760 consecutive cycles in our unit. The pregnancy rate statistically significantly decreased after the third cycle attempt, but no statistically significant decrease was observed between cycles 4 and 20; an acceptable(More)
The failure of tests of ovarian reserve to predict clinical pregnancy in women 40 years old and older prompted this study of the predictive value of information obtained during the first cycle of in vitro fertilization (IVF). Stimulation characteristics during the first IVF cycle attempt were unhelpful in predicting the possibility of clinical pregnancy(More)
To examine whether the choice of the GnRH analogues used during controlled ovarian hyperstimulation (COH), may influence endometrial receptivity, we studied 712 IVF cycles, in patients undergoing COH with GnRH agonist or antagonist and with the transfer of at least one top-quality embryo. The GnRH agonist group showed significantly higher endometrial(More)
The study retrospectively evaluated the influence of triggering final oocyte maturation with gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist on the outcome of IVF cycles. Four hundred and sixty consecutive women admitted to the IVF unit during a 4-year period were enrolled in the study. Ovarian stimulation characteristics and clinical pregnancy rate were(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to evaluate the influence of the ratios of estradiol (E2) to either the number of follicles >14 mm on the day of human chorionic gonadotropin administration (E2/follicle) or the number of oocytes retrieved (E2/oocytes) during controlled ovarian hyperstimulation (COH) with gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH)-agonist(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to evaluate the influence of type of GnRH-analog used during controlled ovarian hyperstimulation (COH) on the outcome of in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycles. PATIENTS AND METHODS All consecutive women aged < or = 35 years admitted to our IVF unit from January 2001 to December 2004 were enrolled in the study. Only(More)
