Abstract

We investigated the use of a gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist (GnRH-a) to assist in the synchronous entry of a fixed number of subjects into in vitro fertilization (IVF) and gamete intrafallopian tube transfer cycle. Using a protocol in which a GnRH-a was given in the follicular or luteal phase, the clinical pregnancy rate per procedure was 27%. We conclude that the use of a GnRH-a for synchronous cycles in IVF-embryo transfer is efficacious and results in acceptable pregnancy rates.
