FSH Administration during hCG Trigger may Improve Oocyte Developmental Competence in IVF Cycles

The increase in the success rates of ART over the past few decades has been mainly attributed to improved laboratory conditions and ovarian stimulation optimization, with less attention directed towards strategies for enhancing final oocyte maturation. A recent study, touted to be the first randomized double blind placebo-controlled clinical trial to alter the ovulation trigger to enhance the developmental competence of oocytes in IVF cycles, has reported a statistically significant improvement in fertilization after a follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) bolus administration at the time of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) trigger, compared to placebo, in IVF cycles.

Transabdominal Follicular Aspiration Effective for Oocyte Retrieval from Transvaginally Inaccessible Ovaries

A new retrospective case-control study has reported that oocyte retrieval via transabdominal ultrasound-guided follicular aspiration is safe and effective in IVF patients with substantial ovarian displacement, i.e. in cases where ovaries are inaccessible transvaginally. The study reported that the results were comparable to cycles where the oocytes were obtained by transvaginal aspiration in women with normally located ovaries. Read the full story
