Seven patients became pregnant (3 in the Metrodin group and 4 in the Metrodin HP group) and the pregnancy rates per patient and per cycle were 7/20 (35%) and 7/45 (15.6%), respectively. No local reactions were found in the majority of cycles. There was no significant difference in pregnancy rates and the number of cycles complicated by bruise, pain, itching, redness or swelling between these 2 groups.

Antiestrogen stimulation test consisting in the administration of Clostilbegyt (50 mg dose twice daily during ten days) was performed in 21 normospermic fertile men, and in 36 patients with idiopathic oligozoospermia after chronic therapy with Clostilbegyt (50 mg daily for 240 days). Among the latter, in 24 the therapy did not bring improvement in the number of spermatozoa, and in 12 patients chronic treatment with Clostilbegyt resulted in about fivefold increase in the number of spermatocytes in 1 ml of semen. It was found that the increase in blood serum estradiol in response to stimulation was much higher (118.9%) in patients not reacting to chronic Clostilbegyt therapy than in normospermic subject (60.8%) or oligospermic patients who reacted positively to the therapy (58.8%). This observation suggests the mechanism of negative results of antiestrogenic therapy in the majority of oligozoospermic patients.

This was a randomized placebo controlled double-blind crossover study of 3 months metformin (1500 mg day-1)/placebo, followed by 3 months metformin/placebo together with clomiphene (50-100 mg for 5 days) for three cycles in clomiphene resistant women with PCOS. The primary outcomes were restoration of spontaneous menses, ovulation induction (spontaneous or clomiphene induced) and pregnancy. Secondary endpoints were changes in biochemical parameters related to androgens and insulin.

The effects of clomiphene citrate (clomiphene) on the in vitro conversion of 13,14-dihydro-15-keto-prostaglandin F2 alpha (15KD-PGF2 alpha) to 13,14-dihydro-prostaglandin F2 alpha (13,14H2-PGF2 alpha) in the presence of rat ovarian homogenate, and the relationship between clomiphene and gonadotropin or estrogen in the conversion were investigated. Although clomiphene inhibited the increased conversion of 15KD-PGF2 alpha to 13,14H2-PGF2 alpha by pregnant mare serum gonadotropin (PMS) in rat ovary, the drug did not inhibit the decreased conversion of 15KD-PGF2 alpha by estradiol. The 3-day administration of clomiphene reduced the conversion of 15KD-PGF2 alpha to 13,14H2-PGF2 alpha dose-dependently. A single administration of clomiphene also decreased the conversion, and this decreasing effect was similar to that of estradiol. On the other hand, the repeated administration of clomiphene decreased the ovarian and uterine weights and also inhibited the increase of the uterine weight by PMS or estradiol. These results suggest that clomiphene affects the ovarian enzyme catalyzing the conversion of 15KD-PGF2 alpha to 13,14H2-PGF2 alpha.

In this study 11.7% of the group requiring screening were conceived by assisted conception. Of all babies requiring treatment for ROP, 28.6% were born after assisted conception. Of the assisted conception group, 83.3% were conceived by IVF. Assisted conception using IVF rather than other techniques appears to be the major risk factor for the development of threshold ROP. We would advise increased vigilance when screening babies conceived by the IVF methods of assisted conception.

GnRH-stimulated gonadotropin response during danazol treatment was significantly higher than that in the same group of women before and after danazol treatment, as well as in controls. Gonadotropin increase after clomiphene citrate administration during danazol treatment was not significant; moreover, LH response was significantly lower than that in the same group of patients before and after danazol treatment, as well as in controls.

Aromatase inhibitors are as effective as or superior to CC in ovulation induction and in superovulation. Unlike CC, they do not carry an antiestrogenic effect on the endometrium. Given the advantages of aromatase inhibitors, they can be used to replace CC as ovulation-inducing drugs. Their role in IVF remains to be determined.

Daily plasma follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH), estrone (E1), estradiol-17beta (E2), progesterone (P), androstenedione (A), and testosterone (T) were measured in six clomiphene citrate (Clomid) treated cycles. Three patients ovulated and 1 of them conceived during the study cycle. Three other patients failed to ovulate in spite of some evidence of ovarian response to clomiphene treatment in 2 of them. Plasma gonadotropin levels, of LH in particular, rose during the clomiphene therapy and reached a peak during Day 5 to Day 7 of therapy. Levels of plasma estrogens, both E1 and E2, gradually rose, reflecting follicular maturation in the ovary. When E2 reached a critical level as in the normal ovulatory cycle, it triggered an LH surge which consequently initiated ovulation. When the E2 level was inadequate or excessive, ovulation failed in spite of an LH surge. Following ovulation, plasma P rose and fell in a manner similar to the normal ovulatory cycle, with occasional values that exceeded the normal range. Levels of androgens, both A and T, rose during clomiphene therapy in some cases and T seemed to fluctuate in correlation with LH level. The possible local inhibitory influence of high E2 and T levels on follicular maturation in the ovary during clomiphene therapy is suspected in some cycles in which ovarian response was evident, but ovulation failed to occur.

Sixty-seven women underwent 91 cycles of ovarian stimulation (OS) and received a single subcutaneous injection of 1 mg of LA when follicular maturity was reached. Only clomiphene citrate (CC) was used for 15 cycles, CC/FSH for 66 cycles and human menopausal gonadotropin only for 10 cycles. Thirty-four cycles were in oligoovulatory women. Eighty-two cycles were combined with intra-uterine insemination.

Eighty-nine patients with defective ovulation were treated either with clomiphene citrate, with or without human chorionic gonadotrophin, or bromocryptine. The pregnancy rate in the two groups was 33.3 and 28.6 percent, respectively. There were no major complications in this study; the merits of these regimens in a unit without facilities for endocrine study are discussed.

Sixty-nine pregnancies were observed in 57 hyperprolactinemic women (5 with pituitary macroadenoma, 20 with microadenoma, and 32 with normal tomography of the sella turcica). Ten of these pregnancies took place spontaneously in women with mild to moderate hyperprolactinemia (up to 70 ng/ml); 2 were induced by exogenous gonadotropins, 2 by clomiphene, 42 by bromocriptine, and 9 by metergoline; and 4 occurred after pituitary selective adenomectomy. The observed complications included spontaneous abortion (10 cases); headache (7 cases); sellar enlargement (5 cases); and bitemporal hemianopsia (1 subject with macroadenoma). Among 24 women in whom prolactin levels were reevaluated at least 1 month after parturition and/or lactation, 8 showed a decrease in prolactin concentration (less than 50% of pregestational levels), with actual prolactin normalization in 3 and resumption of cyclic menses in 2 previously amenorrheic women. In contrast, no changes in prolactin levels occurred after pregnancies that ended in abortion. These data suggest the following: 1) conception is not uncommon in women with moderate hyperprolactinemia; and 2) pregnancy may be safely induced without prior surgery and/or radiotherapy in hyperprolactinemic women, except those with large pituitary adenomas, and a considerable number of these patients even show a clinical and biochemical improvement after pregnancy.

The live birth outcome when multiple gestational sacs were diagnosed at first trimester ultrasound was reviewed in 227 twin, 43 triplet and five quadruplet pregnancies. When two gestational sacs were present, the probability of delivering twins was 63% for maternal age less than 30 and 52% for maternal age greater than or equal to 30. With three gestational sacs, the probability of a triplet birth was 45% for maternal age less than 30 and 18% for maternal age greater than or equal to 30. When two viable embryos were present, the probability of a twin birth was 90% for maternal age less than 30 and 84% for maternal age greater than or equal to 30. With three viable embryos, the probability of a triplet birth was 90% for maternal age less than 30 and 44% for maternal age greater than or equal to 30. Two gestations resulting from ovulation induction with clomiphene citrate were more likely to result in twin delivery at term, compared to spontaneous twin gestations (P = 0.012). These findings may be useful in the treatment and management of patients when multiple gestations are diagnosed early in pregnancy.

In total, 85 women underwent 272 treatment cycles with rFSH, of which 57 women (67%) achieved an ongoing pregnancy. Oligomenorrhoea, shorter duration of infertility and a lower free androgen index (FAI) were associated with higher chances of an ongoing pregnancy, resulting in a predictive model with a modest discriminative power (area under the curve 0.72, 95% confidence interval 0.64-0.79) that allowed us to distinguish between women with a probability of <5% of attaining an ongoing pregnancy and women with a probability of >25% of doing so.

Sustained low-dose GnRH-a therapy during follicular stimulation does not have a clinical effect on luteal function.
A review of the extensive literature on the subject indicates that sex hormones have been associated with a wide variety of adverse clinical conditions following usage during pregnancy. About 230 cases of female pseudohermaphroditism have been reported following use of hormones with androgenic potency, but masculinization observed with estrogens in a few females may represent only adrenal-stimulated pseudohermaphroditism. Feminization of males, mostly by progestogens in some 45 cases, is unproven at present. Realizing the limitations of the published studies when all present data are considered, there seems no justification for undue concern over the induction of nongenital congenital malformations through hormone use in pregnancy. The available data on the association to cardiac, limb, and CNS defects, and to several malformative syndromes, are not convincing: the effects appear to be remarkably nonspecific, the studies are contradicted by a large number of negative reports, and an increased incidence of defects with increased usage has not materialized. A possible exception are the CNS malformations associated with the use of the antifertility agent clomiphene, and careful surveillance is warranted at present. While a reasonable interpretation from this review would be that hormones present no major teratogenic hazard, elimination of hormonal exposure whenever possible during pregnancy is suggested.
The number of preovulatory (≥ 17 mm) follicles on the day of hCG administration was significantly greater in the rFSH group than in the CC group (1.7 vs. 1.4, P = .01). Multifollicular growth was observed in 35.1% in the CC group and 54.8% in the FSH group (P = .01). The OPR per cycle was 9.6 and 15.6% for CC and rFSH groups, respectively (P = .31).

Although it is well known that acupuncture has beneficial effects on a variety of medical conditions especially in pain relief, nausea, and vomiting, it remains controversial whether it has positive impact on the female reproduction. The present study aimed to evaluate whether the following endometrial receptivity factors: the endometrial morphology, the hormone concentrations, and the protein expression of endometrial leukaemia-inhibitory factor (LIF) and osteopontin (OPN) could be improved by the acupuncture in clomiphene citrate(CC)-induced rat model during implantation period. Results showed that, compared with the CC group, glandular development advanced, the serum estradiol levels decreased significantly, and the glandular area and endometrial LIF and OPN expression were significantly higher in acupuncture group. There were no significant differences in serum progesterone levels, endometrial thickness, and stromal area between groups. These results suggest that acupuncture can improve certain aspects of endometrial receptivity in CC-induced rat model during implantation period, which might result in endometrial state better to female reproduction.
Most women who were prescribed CC had appropriate indications for therapy (65% with a diagnosis related to irregular menses and 33% with a diagnosis of female infertility), but there was variable and inconsistent monitoring of ovulation (much of which was apparently initiated by the patients). In the interview, 24 of the women (56%) said they would be fine having twins, and 14 (33%) said they would prefer to have twins if possible.

The prevalence of menometrorrhagia in fertile women is 11.4-13.2% and increases with aging. The presence of metrorrhagia is a relatively common cause of concern among adolescents and their parents, as well as a frequent cause of visits to emergency departments, gynaecologists, and pediatricians. Clomiphene is a selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM) that increases the production of gonadotropins by inhibiting negative feedback on the hypothalamus. Clomiphene is primarily used in the treatment of female infertility for ovulation induction to reverse oligoovulation or anovulation, as occurs in polycystic ovary syndrome.

Both before and during treatment, uterine vascularity assessed at all sites was significantly lower in the PCOS group than in controls. Endometrial thickness and pattern were impaired in the PCOS group under clomiphene citrate treatment. A significant difference in all ultrasonographic parameters was observed between cycles ending in unfavourable versus those ended in favourable outcome.
