  • What patients are best suited for freeze only IVF cycles?
  • How can progesterone concentration be used as prognostic factor?
  • Is there an optimal cutoff value for progesterone to consider with freeze only? 
  • How does patient age affect decision to consider freeze only?
  • What study design is best to interrogate this important issue?
