Comparison of live birth defects after luteal phase ovarian stimulation vs conventional ovarian stimulation for in vitro fertilization and vitrified embryo transfer cycles

Wednesday, April 29, 2015
No evidence was found of detrimental effects of luteal-phase ovarian stimulation on live-born infants at birth. Infertility itself and multiple births pose risk factors for congenital malformation.
