The effect of the administration of 1-ascorbic acid, either alone or combined with clomiphene, upon induction of human ovulation was investigated in clomiphene-inffective anovulatory women. Oral administration of daily 400 mg of ascorbic acid induced ovulation in two out of five habitually anovulatory cycles and in one out of eight first-grade amenorrhea cases, and was ineffective in all six second-grade hypothalamic amenorrhea cases. Combined administration of ascorbic acid with 5 days of… 
Relevance of serum ascorbic acid status in ovulation and pregnancy outcome of non-PCOS women undergoing intrauterine insemination cycles
Ovulation is an important process for successful co nception in intra-uterine insemination (IUI) cycles . The ovulatory process is initiated by an E2 induced LH surge causes a series of dramatic
Ascorbic Acid Supplement During Luteal Phase in IVF
The data suggest there is no obvious value of high dosed intake of vitamin C during luteal phase in infertility treatment, and no clinical evidence of any beneficial effect, as defined by main outcome measures, of ascorbic acid on IVF-ET.
Ascorbic Acid and Alpha-Tocopherol Contribute to the Therapy of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome in Mouse Models
It is shown that AA and ATE are beneficial in the therapy of PCOS, and both increased total antioxidant capacity and decreased malondialdehyde levels.
The status of ascorbic acid in follicular fluid of non-PCOS women during IVF-ET cycles is an indicator for aromatization and pregnancy outcome
The positive correlationship of FF-AA with clinical pregnancy rate observed in this study clearly denotes the importance of maintaining the antioxida nt status within the microenvironment in order to a chieve pregnancy.
Role of ascorbic acid in promoting follicle integrity and survival in intact mouse ovarian follicles in vitro.
It is concluded that ascorbic acid is necessary for remodelling the basement membrane during follicular growth and that the ability of follicles to uptake ascorBic acid confers an advantage in terms of granulosa cell survival.
Evaluation The Role Of Vitamin C In The IUI-Treatment Of Female Infertility
Vitamin C has a role in female reproduction as it can improve the number, diameter of follicles, endometrial thickness and thereby pregnancy outcome.
Identification and characterization of an ascorbic acid transporter in human granulosa-lutein cells.
Preliminary evidence is presented for the presence of a transporter for ascorbic acid in human granulosa-lutein cells that appears to occur via a Na+ - and energy-dependent transporter, with high levels of ascorBic acid being accumulated in these cells.
Effects of maternal ageing and dietary antioxidant supplementation on ovulation, fertilisation and embryo development in vitro in the mouse.
The maternal-age-associated decrease in both the number of ovulated oocytes after exogenous ovarian stimulation and embryo development in vitro in the mouse was partially prevented by supplementing diet with high doses of vitamins C and E from the first day of weaning.
Vitamin C Supplementation in Relation to Subfertility and Ovarian Function
A role of vitamin C supplementation is found to affect the subfertility through increasing the endometrial thickness either directly by its antioxidant effect onendometrial cell or through increase the level of progesterone.
Effects of Vitamin C on the Endometrial Thickness and Ovarian Hormones of Progesterone and Estrogen in Married and Unmarried Women
Vitamin C supplementation has effect on the endometrial thickness and ovarian hormones in married and unmarried women during luteal phase. The objective of this study was to determine the effect of
