Abstract

Objective: To compare the effectiveness of intramuscular (IM) and intravaginal (IV) progesterone for luteal phase support, in patients undergoing in vitro fertilization-embryo transfer cycles (IVF-ET). Design: retrospective, observational, case-control study Setting: Centro Natalità, San Raffaele Hospital, Milan, Italy, from July 2007 to June 2009. Patient(s): 172 A-GnRH down-regulated IVF-ET cycles in patients with age
