Our Latest Study is Published in Fertility and Sterility!

by | February 24, 2012

We are so excited to share the publication of our latest research study in Fertility and Sterility! It is the largest prospective study in the world comparing Crinone vaginal gel to IM progesterone for IVF. The study, which evaluated 511 patients going through IVF in 2009, demonstrated statistical superiority of Crinone compared to IM progesterone for all patients, and specifically for patients under 35. We are now using vaginal progesterone exclusively for luteal phase support in our IVF and gonadotropin/IUI patients.

We have also just received a research grant from Watson Pharmaceuticals to study the efficacy of Crinone for patients undergoing treatment with clomid/IUI. Hopefully those results will be out soon and we look forward to keeping you apprised as we learn more!
