Abstract

Objective: To employ protocols of mild ovarian stimulation to prevent an excessively elevated rate of high-order multiple pregnancies. Design: Case series. Setting: University hospital. Patient(s): Six hundred and twenty one consecutive patients undergoing 1,259 controlled ovarian hyperstimulation and intrauterine insemination cycles. Intervention(s): Patients received 50 IU per day of recombinant follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) starting the third day of the cycle, then a gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) antagonist on the day in which a follicle
