Abstract

In a program for in vitro fertilization, laparoscopies for oocyte aspiration were performed on 24 patients receiving human menopausal gonadotropin and human chorionic gonadotropin. Of the 40 preovulatory oocytes that were recovered from these patients, 33 (83%) were fertilized and 30 (75%) cleaved and were transferred. Ten immature oocytes were collected, and attempts were made to mature these in vitro prior to insemination. All ten oocytes (100%) did fertilize, and seven (70%) cleaved and were transferred. Morphologic variation was noted between cleaving conceptuses, even in those conceptuses responsible for establishing pregnancies. Five pregnancies resulted from 19 embryo transfers (26%).
