Characteristic of Poor Responder Patients and the success rate of biochemical pregnancy in the administration of adjuvant recombinant Luteinizing Hormones in Yasmin Clinic, Jakarta


Introduction: Management for poor response patients is still a challenge for clinician engaged in Assisted Reproductive Technology. Various protocols have been proposed to improve the outcome for patients, though no RCT can provide the evidence based of success rate of one protocol among others.

Objective: Our purpose is to find the basic data of poor responder patients in Yasmin Clinic, Jakarta and to assess the IVF cycle outcome after the addition of recombinant Luteinizing Hormones.

Material and methods: This is a cohort retrospective study taken from medical records of IVF patients at Yasmin Clinic, Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital between January 2012 to January 2015.

Result :  Two hundreds and eighty-one poor response patients were selected for ART during January 2012 to January 2015, were divided into four main group. Control group received gonadotrophin protocol, while group II received additional recombinant Luteinizing hormones (rLH), Group III received additional Growth hormones (GH) and Group IV received additional rLH and GH both.

Discussion: Our study demonstrated the follicle count, the oocyte count and the cleavage rate were statistically significant difference between control group and LH group. Where the oocyte count and follicle count were significantly higher, but the cleavage rate with LH showed negative correlation compare with control group.

Conclusion : In this study we found that with adjuvant therapy with recombinant Luteinizing Hormones, produced higher follicles count and oocyte count.
