Four pregnancies were exposed to gonadotrophin-releasing hormone agonist (GnRHa) during early pregnancy and the patients were followed up to find out the outcome of their pregnancies. In three patients long-acting GnRHa (triptorelin acetate 3.75 mg) once monthly was used for severe pelvic endometriosis as part of preparation for undergoing assisted reproductive technology (ART) cycle, and in one patient daily injections of short-acting GnRHa (buserelin 0.05 mg) was given for down-regulation for ART cycle. The age of the patients ranged from 29 to 38 years and duration of infertility was 3 to 13 years. In patients prescribed long-acting GnRHa, diagnosis of pregnancy was done late at around 5-8 weeks by ultrasonography, whereas in patients using short-acting GnRHa diagnosis of pregnancy was made with blood beta human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) level after the 26th day of injections. Three pregnancies were delivered around term and the babies had no apparent complication or any congenital anomaly. One of the pregnancies ended up into spontaneous abortion at 14 weeks of pregnancy. The children were regularly examined by pediatricians regarding physical and mental development and for any abnormal behavioral problems. All of them are normal till now.
