To allow selection of embryos for transfer after in vitro fertilization, ovarian stimulation is usually carried out with exogenous gonadotropins. To compensate for changes induced by stimulation, GnRH analog cotreatment, oral contraceptive pretreatment, late follicular phase human chorionic gonadotropin, and luteal phase progesterone supplementation are usually added. These approaches render ovarian stimulation complex and costly. The stimulation of multiple follicular development disrupts the physiology of follicular development, with consequences for the oocyte, embryo, and endometrium...

The aim of this study was to evaluate whether frequency of ovulation and fertility potential of oocytes from the two ovaries differed in regularly menstruating women (1057 cycles of 856 fertile women and 1033 cycles of 258 infertile women). For both fertile and infertile women ovulation from the right ovary occurred more often than from the left ovary (55 versus 45%; P: < 0.005). In infertile women follicular phase length was similar for right- and left-sided ovulation. However, infertile women treated with intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in-vitro fertilization (IVF) showed a pregnancy rate in connection with right-sided ovulation (13%) which was higher than that of left-sided (9%)...
