The objective of the present study was to assess the effect of altering the timing of GnRH antagonist initiation on the hormonal environment and follicular development in in vitro fertilization cycles. Sixty women undergoing in vitro fertilization participated in a prospective randomized controlled trial. Patients were stimulated with a fixed dose of 200 IU recombinant FSH, starting on d 2 of the cycle, and with GnRH-antagonist, starting either on d 1 (n = 30) or on d 6 of stimulation (n = 30… CONTINUE READING
