Objective: To report the use of serum FSH levels during gonadotropin therapy for IVF to ensure medication compliance. Design: Case report. Setting: University-based reproductive endocrinology clinic. Patient(s): Two women with normal ovarian reserve undergoing IVF cycles with unexpected clinical responses. Intervention(s): FSH laboratory values. Main Outcome Measure(s): Ovarian follicular development. Result(s): Adequate follicular response leading to oocyte retrieval. Conclusion(s): Determination of serum FSH levels may help detect noncompliance with recommended gonadotropin regimens during IVF.
