Low dose human chorionic gonadotropin administration at the time of gonadotropin releasing-hormone agonist trigger versus 35 h later in women at high risk of developing ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome - a prospective randomized double-blind clinical trial.

J Ovarian Res 2019 Jan 26;12(1). Epub 2019 Jan 26.

Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Center for Advanced Reproductive Services, University of Connecticut School of Medicine, Farmington, CT, 06030, USA.

Background: Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome remains a serious complication during in vitro fertilization cycles if high dose human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is used to trigger ovulation in high responder patients. Though much of this risk is mitigated with trigger using gonadotropin releasing-hormone (GnRH) agonist alone, it may result in lower birth rates. GnRH-agonist trigger and adjuvant low dose hCG has been proposed to improve birth rates, but timing of this hCG support to corpus luteum function has never been fully described. Read More

Does the "delayed start" protocol with gonadotropin-releasing hormone antagonist improve the pregnancy outcome in Bologna poor responders? a randomized clinical trial.

Reprod Biol Endocrinol 2018 Dec 28;16(1):124. Epub 2018 Dec 28.

Department of Endocrinology and Female Infertility, Reproductive Biomedicine Research Center, Royan Institute for reproductive biomedicine, ACECR, P.O Box: 19395-4644, No 12, East Hafez Avenue, Banihashem Street, Resalat highway, Tehran, Iran.

Background: Recently, a novel approach with delaying the start of controlled ovarian stimulation along with gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) antagonist pretreatment for 7 days after estrogen priming for further suppression of endogenous follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) during the early follicular phase, resulting in more FSH-responsive follicles and thus improving synchronous follicular development was introduced. Two clinical trials have examined this strategy and reported controversial results. This study aimed to compare the effect of delayed-start GnRH antagonist protocol and standard GnRH antagonist in patients with poor ovarian response (POR) undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF)/ intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).
