Perifollicular Doppler in Natural Cycle In Vitro Fertilization
Perifollicular Doppler could reflect the quality of the follicle's vascularization and, consequently, the one of the oocyte that ensues from it. Perifollicuar Doppler is the analysis, in ultrasound, of the blood flow in vessels surrounding the follicle.
The goal of this study is to evaluate if there is a link, in natural cycle In Vitro Fertilization, between the quality of the vascularization and the one of the oocyte, the embryo and the pregnancy.
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Perifollicular Doppler in Natural Cycle In Vitro Fertilization|
- Quality perifollicular doppler and quality of the oocyte [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]The measurements are done twice; on days of induction and oocyte retrieval. During the blood sample collection on the day of the induction, there is also a measurement of progesterone, estradiol and luteinizing hormone (LH).
