Human chorionic gonadotropin reduces aromatizable androgens and aromatase activity in women stimulated by clomiphene citrate and human menopausal gonadotropin.

Abstract

Periovulatory steroidal dynamics in women undergoing ovulation induction with clomiphene citrate and human menopausal gonadotropin were studied in 31 women with tubal blockage. Serum estradiol levels were significantly reduced 36 hours after human chorionic gonadotropin administration (from 1792 +/- 162 to 926 +/- 132 pg/ml, p less than 0.001). Peripheral… (More)
