The incidence of the premature LH-rise/peak has been analysed in view to the pregnancy rate in 139 HMG and combined Buserelin + HMG cycles of an IVF-ET/GIFT program. A premature LH-rise/peak seems to be correlated with a lower pregnancy rate; therefore the cancellation of the stimulation is recommended in these cases. A gonadotropin suppression by the GnRH-analog Buserelin before and during the HMG treatment proved to be a good method to prevent a premature LH-rise/peak and to decrease the number of cancelled stimulation cycles.
