    Due to inherent differences between gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRH) antagonists and agonists, their late effect on ovarian steroidal production during the luteal phase of IVF cycles may differ. The aim of this study was to characterize and compare the luteal phase hormonal profile after...

    Natural cycle IVF, without the use of LH down-regulation, is difficult because women start spontaneous LH surges at any time of the day and on any day of the week. This is not readily compatible with delivery of a routine IVF service and so historically the natural cycle has been modified by the...

    An ovarian adenomyoma developed in a 38-year-old infertile patient following treatment with exogenous gonadotrophins. Laparoscopic excision was performed. Histological examination showed thick muscular bundles resembling myometrium lined with endometrial glands and stroma. Gonadotrophins might...
