Abstract

It has been suggested that the presence of periovarian adhesions might impair the ovarian response to gonadotropins. Periovarian adhesions were recorded in 49 women, and the total percentage of accessible ovarian cortex was described at the initiation of the operative procedure. Adhesiolysis was performed as needed for oocyte recovery. Ovarian access did not correlate with serum estradiol level on either the day of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) administration or the day after hCG administration. Similarly, neither the total number of follicles on the day of hCG or on the day after hCG, nor the number of follicles 1.0 to 1.4 cm or ≥ 1.5 cm correlated with ovarian access. We conclude that periovarian adhesions are not a major determinant of the ovarian response to gonadotropin stimulation.
