It is known that normal follicular growth and pregnancy are possible using Follicular stimulating hormon(FSH) alone during controlled ovarian hyperstimulation(COH) for IVF-ET. The purpose of this study was to compare and analize the results of COH for IVF-ET between a group using only FSH-HP and a group using FSH/hMG METHOD: 111 cycle of the total 280 COH for IVF-ET cycles belonged to the FSH-HP group, and the FSH/hMG group accounted for remaining 169 cycles. The amount of gonadotropin administered, the duration of hormonal therapy, the number of embryos transfered, the endometrial thickness, and the pregnancy rate were compared between the two groups and statistically analized using the t-test. p values less than 0.05 deemed statistically significant. RESULT: There were no statistical differences on the amount of gonadotropin administered, the duration of hormone therapy, number of oocytes retrieved, nor the endometrial thickness between the two groups. However,the serum E2 level was significantly lower, and the number of embryos of high quality(GradeIandII) significantly higher in the FSH-HP group. In pregnancy rate, FSH-HP group shows higher than FSH/hMG group(38.8% VS 34.2%). but the difference was not large enough to be considered statistically significant. CONCLUSION: The results of this study show that compared to using FSH/hMG, treatment with FSH-HP alone allowed the retrieval of more embryos of high quality, and although not statistically significant, achieved a higher pregnancy rate, thus indicating that it can be used as an effective method for COH.
