Abstract

Purpose: To compare basal and clomiphene citrate ( CC) induced follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), estradiol (E-2), and inhibin B levels with ultrasound indices of ovarian reserve in infertile women and to test the prognostic value of these tests on response to ovarian stimulation in in vitro fertilization (IVF).
