Programed oocyte retrieval was performed in a group of 35 patients undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment. The date of follicular aspiration was decided several months in advance and the cycle prior to oocyte recovery was modified with a progestagen or an estrogen-progestagen contraceptive pill. This was followed by a fixed-schedule ovulation stimulation and induction regimen. Follicular growth was not monitored. Thirty-four of the 35 patients had follicular aspiration, and at least one embryo was obtained in 30 of them. The clinical pregnancy rate (excluding cryopreserved embryos) was 20% per IVF cycle, 21% per attempted oocyte retrieval procedure, and 23% per embryo transfer cycle. Programmed oocyte retrieval is a realistic option for follicular stimulation for IVF treatment and is associated with significant practical and economic benefits.
