Abstract

The combined GnRH-agonist hMG-stimulation has now become a worthwhile tool as a second line therapy in vitro fertilization (IVF) under special conditions such as premature LH-surge and hyperandrogenemia. Several authors even propose this treatment as a first line therapy with an increased overall pregnancy rate.
