Early luteal phase endocrine profile is affected by the mode of triggering final oocyte maturation and the luteal phase support used in recombinant follicle-stimulating hormone–gonadotropin-releasing hormone antagonist in vitro fertilization cycles

In oocyte donors triggered with a bolus of GnRHa, gonadotropin and steroid levels during the early luteal phase differed significantly according to the type of luteal phase support used after triggering.

Blastocyst biopsy with comprehensive chromosome screening and fresh embryo transfer significantly increases in vitro fertilization implantation and delivery rates: a randomized controlled trial

A randomized controlled trial demonstrates that blastocyst biopsy followed by rapid quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction–based comprehensive chromosome screening and fresh embryo transfer significantly increases implantation and delivery rates.
