OBJECTIVE: To report two successful pregnancies after frozen-thawed ET in discontinued hormone replacement treatment cycles. DESIGN: Case report. SETTING: University hospital. PATIENT(S): Two infertile patients. INTERVENTION(S): Hormone replacement treatment for endometrial preparation and frozen-thawed ET. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Ovarian ultrasonography, serial hormone measurements of serum E(2) and P, successful pregnancy, and follow-up visit. RESULT(S): One patient discontinued both E(2) and P support 2 weeks after ET. The other discontinued estrogen support on the day preceding ET. No spontaneous follicle development was observed by ultrasonography, and no increase in serum P concentration was observed. Both patients became pregnant and achieved deliveries. CONCLUSION(S): These two cases show that maintenance of pregnancy is possible without early hormone support in hormone replacement treatment cycles.
