OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effects of endometrial thickness measurements and serum hormone levels on the outcomes of GnRH antagonist down-regulated ICSI cycles.
STUDY DESIGN: Forty consecutive infertile women undergoing controlled ovarian hyperstimulation with recombinant FSH and GnRH antagonists for ICSI were enrolled in this study. All patient's age, day 3 FSH, antral follicle count (AFC), serum E2 levels on day 3, E2 on stimulation day 5, E2 on day of hCG administration, endometrial thickness on the baseline (ETMBaseline), on day 5 of stimulation (ETMDay 5), on day of hCG administration (ETMhCG) and cycle outcomes were recorded. The outcomes of pregnant and nonpregnant women were compared.
RESULTS: Women's age was 33.6 +/- 4.9. Overall pregnancy rate was 45% (n = 18), clinical pregnancy rate was 27.5% (n = 11) and ongoing pregnancy rate was 20% (n = 8). In pregnant women, baseline AFC was significantly higher compared with nonpregnant women (p = 0.01). There was no significant correlation between ETMhCG and E2 level on the day of hCG, number of retrieved oocytes or patients' age.
CONCLUSION: For achieving pregnancy, endometrial thickness on the day of hCG is not a determining parameter, and the only significant determinent is AFC in GnRH antagonist down-regulated ICSI cycles.
