Fertility and Sterility, 06/12/2012
Gremeau AS et al. – In vitro maturation is a safer and simpler alternative to conventional IVF for women with PCO. It avoids difficulties of gonadotropin stimulation and the risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) but has a significantly lower live birth rate. Current research projects aim to close the success gap between IVM and IVF.
