Low Dose hCG in the Late Follicular Phase
Among ICSI Patients Undergoing Antagonist Protocols With Recombinant FSH, Does Replacement of Recombinant FSH by 200 IU of hCG in the Late Follicular Phase Compared With Continuing Recombinant FSH, Result in a Similar Number of Oocytes?

In this study,the investigators compared two protocols for controlled ovarian hyperstimulation in infertility patients requiring IVF. In the control group, the patient undergoes a standard antagonist protocol. In the study group, the administration of gonadotropins is stopped in the late follicular phase and replaced by low dose human chorionic gonadotropins. The primary endpoint of the study is the number of oocytes retrieved in both groups.

  • Drug: human chorionic gonadotropin
    hCG 200IU in the late follicular phase
    Other Name: Pregnyl, NV Organon, Oss, The Netherlands
  • Drug: recombinant gonadotropins
    200 IU per day during controlled ovarian stimulation
    Other Name: Puregon, NV Organon, Oss, The Netherlands
  • Active Comparator: A
    Patients undergo a standard antagonist protocol for in-vitro fertilisation, and are stimulated with recombinant gonadotropins.
    Intervention: Drug: recombinant gonadotropins
  • Experimental: B
    Patients are undergo an antagonist protocol for in-vitro fertilisation and are stimulated with recombinant gonadotropins. When the patient has an estradiol value of 600 ng/L or more and when the patient has at least 6 follicles of 12 mm, the administration of gonadotropins is stopped and replaced by low dose human chorionic gonadotropins.
    Intervention: Drug: human chorionic gonadotropin
