This prospective observational study evaluated the efficacy and safety of oocyte-donation cycles triggered with a gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist without monitoring oestradiol concentrations during ovarian stimulation. A total of 97 oocyte donors received recombinant FSH (150-225/day) and GnRH antagonists (0.25mg/day). Oocyte maturation was triggered with 0.2mg triptorelin s.c. Donors aged 25.4±4.1years were stimulated for 8.8±0.9days and underwent 2.9±0.5 (2-4) ultrasound assessments. Total FSH dose was 1703.4±304.7IU, antagonists were administered for 4.3±1.0days, 14.7±8.8 oocytes were retrieved and there were no cases of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome. Recipients (n=123) aged 40.3±3.4years received 10.9±4.3 oocytes, 88.7% of which were metaphase II. Intracytoplasmic sperm injection fertilization rate was 79% and 2.18±0.6 (1-3) embryos were transferred. The pregnancy, clinical pregnancy and twin pregnancy rates were 64.2%, 57.7% and 19.7%, respectively. In conclusion, given the high efficacy and safety of the GnRH-antagonist protocol triggered with a GnRH agonist, the monitoring of oestradiol concentrations is not necessary. Ultrasound monitoring is enough for an adequate follow up of the stimulation cycle in oocyte donors.
