Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Identification of the ovary at the time of ovulation during three consecutive menstrual cycles results in one of eight ovulation patterns, left-left-right, right-left-right, left-right-right, and right-right-right of right-sided ovulation and right-right-left, left-right-left, right-left-left, and left-left-left of left-sided ovulation. Our data suggest that IVF and IUI treatment in cycles in which development of the preovulatory follicle(s) occurs in the right-sided ovary-and ovulations took place from the left-sided ovary in the preceding two cycles (left-left-right)-is likely to show the best pregnancy potential and high offspring sex ratio.
