Abstract

The objective of this meta-analysis is to assess the impact of LH supplementation in women undergoing in vitro fertilization/ intracytoplasmic sperm injection (IVF/ICSI) with gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) antagonist protocol. No significant difference in outcomes between LH supplementation and r-FSH alone in women undergoing IVF/ICSI with GnRH antagonist protocol is currently present, and further studies are necessary for more solid conclusions on pregnancy likelihood to be drawn.
