Abstract

To evaluate the effects of salpingectomy on ovarian response in controlled ovarian hyperstimulation (COH), 36 women who underwent controlled ovarian stimulation cycles for IVF before and after salpingectomy were studied. The overall number of dominant follicles and the number of oocytes aspirated before and after salpingectomy were comparable (7.2 ± 3.8 vs. 7.3 ± 3.7 and 10.2 ± 6.6 vs. 10.3 ± 7.4, respectively) as well as maximal E2 levels, daily doses of gonadotropins, and the number of dominant follicles before and after surgery on the operated side, demonstrating that salpingectomy does not influence ovarian response in COH.
