  Description
Gonal-f® Plus Pergoveris® Gonal-f® (follitropin alfa) 300 International Unit (IU) was administered subcutaneously once daily from stimulation day 1 (S1) to stimulation day 5 (S5) followed by subsequent daily administration of Pergoveris® (follitropin alfa and lutropin alfa) 300 IU subcutaneously starting from S6 until recombinant human chorionic gonadotropin (r-hCG) (Ovidrel®/Ovitrelle®) administration day (at least 1 follicles greater than or equal to (>=) 18 millimeter [mm]). On r-hCG day, 250 microgram of r-hCG was administered once subcutaneously. The dose of Pergoveris® was adjusted based upon the participant's ovarian response and according to the site's standard practice.
Pergoveris® Pergoveris® (follitropin alfa and lutropin alfa) 300 IU was administered subcutaneously once daily from S1 until r-hCG administration day (at least 1 follicles >= 18 mm). On r-hCG (Ovidrel®/Ovitrelle®) day, 250 microgram of r-hCG was administered once subcutaneously.
