|Official Title:||Early Progesterone Cessation After in Vitro Fertilization|
- progesterone [ Time Frame: june 2009 ]
Our predictions are similar to those seen in previous studies:
No significant change in the miscarriage rate.
There may be a higher percentage of bleeding episodes in patients who stop LPS earlier, but it does not seem to have an impact.
|Study Start Date:||January 2009|
|Study Completion Date:||January 2010|
|Primary Completion Date:||January 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Active Comparator: Progesterone 5 Weeks
The study group stop receiving P4 on the day of their first US at 5 weeks pregnancy
Other: Cease progsterone at 5
Cease administration of progsterone at first US at 5 weeks
Control Group : P4 8 weeks
Progesterone will be given until 8 weeks of pregnancy
Other: control group: progesterone 8
Control group: progesterone until 8 weeks of pregnancy
The objective of the study is to investigate the effect of early cessation of progesterone for LPS after IVF treatment on the pregnancy outcome, with special interest in determining the miscarriage rate and episodes of bleeding between the date of the first ultrasound (US) and up to 12 weeks of gestation.
Patients start to receive 200 mg twice a day of P4 on the day after oocyte retrieval.
All patients which show a gestational sac in their uterus in the first US are included in this study and randomized.
- Patients who underwent ovarian stimulation using GnRH analogues,
- Fresh embryo transfer,
- LPS by vaginal micronized P4,
- Clinical pregnancy demonstrated by US and
- Informed consent signed.
Patients who had bleeding episodes before their first US because they are likely to continue P4 therapy without medical indication.
