ABSTRACT
The article reports on the study conducted by D. Pu and colleagues which evaluates the efficacy of luteinizing hormone releasing hormone antagonist (GnRH-ant) versus GnRh agonist (GnRH-a) protocols for ovarian stimulation in poor responders of in vitro fertilization (IVF). The researchers conclude that GnRH-ant has lower duration of stimulation than GnRH-a protocols. They mention that there is no improvements found in the number of oocytes and mature oocytes retieved.
