Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • blood levels of C-reactive protein [ Time Frame: within 1 year from initiation of ivf treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • follicle liquid levels of C-reactive protein [ Time Frame: within 1 year from initiation of ivf treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
