Abstract

A cross-sectional retrospective study was performed to question the utility of coagulation screening to prevent procedure-related bleeding before oocyte retrieval in IVF. Among 1,032 patients evaluated we found that 534 coagulation tests were needed to prevent one case of bleeding associated with an abnormal coagulation test result.
