Abstract:

Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) given as a weekly injection in a medium dose is as safe and effective as a daily FSH injection for women undergoing assisted reproduction.

  • Interesting meta-analysis data. Is the long-acting FSH widely available in the United States? Will this be likely used in the majority of cycles in the future?
    It would be interesting to hear about the experiences of those who are already using this on a routine basis.
