Oocytes collected in stimulated cycles are more readily fertilized after preincubation than are oocytes inseminated immediately after collection. It has not been ascertained, however, whether this increase in the fertilization rate is due to extrusion of the first polar body (meiotic maturation) during this period, or to some conclusive cytoplasmic maturation subsequent to the polar body extrusion. When analysing oocytes with a polar body (n = 14) by transmission electron microscopy… CONTINUE READING
