Brief Summary:
The aim of this study is to test the hypothesis that addition of daily small dose of human menopausal gonadotropin (HMG) drug following oocytes retrieval could improve the fertility outcome in women undergoing in-vitro fertilization

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Infertility Drug: human menopausal gonadotropin Phase 4

Detailed Description:
The study will be conducted in the IVF unit of Cairo University. Females undergoing ICSI cycles in the age between 20 and 40 years will be allocated to one of 2 groups. Long agonist protocol will be used. Allocation to either one of 2 groups will be done on the day of oocytes retrieval. The first group will take (in addition to the routine care) daily human menopausal gonadotropin drug injection for 2 weeks. The second group will receive the routine care.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 600 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Human Menopausal Gonadotropin as a Novel Addition to Luteal Phase Support in Down-regulated ICSI Cycles (RCT)
Actual Study Start Date : July 6, 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date : July 15, 2019

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Human menopausal gonadotropin (HMG)
This group will take daily subcutaneous 75 IU (international unit) of human menopausal gonadotropin (HMG) in addition to the usual luteal phase support from the day of ovum pickup and will be continued for 2 weeks
Drug: human menopausal gonadotropin
Merional injections will be given to participants after ovum pickup in in-vitro fertilization cycles
Other Name: Merional

No Intervention: Routine care
This group will receive the routine care for luteal phase support



Primary Outcome Measures :

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Clinical pregnancy rate [ Time Frame: This outcome will be calculated 2 years after enrollment of the first patient in the study ]
    The clinical pregnancy rate will be calculated by a statistician for each group

  2. Implantation rate [ Time Frame: This outcome will be calculated 2 years after enrollment of the first patient in the study ]
    The implantation rate will be calculated by a statistician for each group

  3. Miscarriage rate [ Time Frame: This outcome will be calculated 2 years after enrollment of the first patient in the study ]
    The miscarriage rate will be calculated by a statistician for each group
