The article highlights a study which investigates the impact of an increase in progesterone concentration on the day of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) on the pregnancy result of intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) patients simulated with the long agonist protocol. Researchers have found out that a rise in progesterone on the day of HCG does not affect rates of implantation and pregnancy in ICSI cycles. They also determined that progesterone is not predictive of pregnancy outcome.
