Abstract

A patient with PCO and primary infertility had undergone numerous failed attempts of ovulation induction. She then was treated with GnRHa leuprolide 500 μg subcutaneously daily for 4 weeks, later combined with hMG 225 IU IM daily for 8 days and hCG IU IM. Six oocytes were retrieved for IVF, four fertilized and two were replaced. Twin pregnancy was established and delivered at term. Hyperstimulation syndrome was managed conservatively.
