A comparative, randomized study of three different progesterone support of the luteal phase following IVF/ET program
Vaginal cream for better bioavailability and acceptance appear the most suitable and comfortable method for luteal phase support.
Endometrial morphology and hormonal profiles in in vitro fertilization patients.
Endometrial morphology and hormonal fertilization patients profiles in in vitro
The above findings do not support the supposition that defective endometrial structure is the main reason for nidation failure in the IVF-ET programs.
Luteal phase support in assisted reproduction
The first report of the combined use of pituitary suppression and ovarian hyperstimulation in invitro fertilization (IVF) and embryo transfer programmes was published in 1984 and several reports have shown that corpus luteum function and luteal phase duration are shortened in IVF cycles regardless of the protocol used for multifollicular induction.
Analysis of the bleeding pattern in assisted reproduction cycles with luteal phase supplementation using vaginal micronized progesterone.
The results reflect the normal bleeding pattern to be expected when vaginal progesterone is used for luteal support in IVF and embryo transfer, an approach whose efficacy has been amply proven.

Luteal phase support with hCG or progesterone after assisted reproduction results in an increased pregnancy rate, and the optimal hormone for lutealphase support, i.e. hCG, progestersone, or a combination of both, is found.


Effects of HCG and human pituitary LH on steroid secretion and functional life of the human corpus luteum.
The data suggest that both LH and HCG are capable of stimulating progesterone synthesis in a normal corpus luteum in vivo.
