Abstract

In this retrospective cohort study of 102 ovarian stimulation cycles for IVF/intracytoplasmic sperm injection using GnRH antagonist and gonadotropins, we sought to assess the effect of high E2 levels on endometrial stripe thickness and its association with pregnancy outcomes and serum E2 levels. We found no significant correlation between serum E2 levels (both peak and area under the curve E2 concentration) and the endometrial thickness. However, there was a statistically significant inverse relationship with early pregnancy loss (31%) if the endometrial thickness was <9.8 mm (sensitivity 71%; specificity 76%).
