The article cites a study conducted by researchers from Spain which found that the use of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist for ovulation does not affect the rate of embryo implant. The study has evaluated the capacity of embryos derived from oocytes matured with bolus of GnRH agonist to implant. Researchers have demonstrated that the embryo is not altered by the agonist and suggested that the decrease in pregnancy rates is associated with luteolysis.
