Abstract

This study was designed to determine the efficacy of using OCs prior to ovulation induction in an IVF-ET program. A total of 26 cycles were initiated after gonadotropin suppression with OCs and 22 laparoscopies (84.6%) were performed. A pregnancy rate of 22.7% per laparoscopy and 23.8% per ET was achieved. The results suggest that the use of OCs to regulate oocyte retrieval can result in acceptable pregnancy rates and facilitate efficient time use of IVF-ET personnel.
