71 cycles of 67 women were treated for superovulation induction in our IVF & ET program from May to September in 1988. Endogenous LH surges were occurred in 21 cycles out of 71 cycles. And then, we selected 50 cycles without endogenous LH surge treated in the same period as control group. We compared egg recovery rate, egg maturity, fertilization rate, cleavage rate and pregnancy rate of study group with those of control group. We were able to detect more than 90% of endogenous LH surge by commencing daily LH monitoring on MCD 9. The egg recovery rate, egg maturity, fertilization rate, and pregnancy rate of the study group were not statistically different from those of the control group. Significantly lower cleavage rate was seen in the study group compared with that of control group. Above results suggested that the cycles with endogenous LH surge do not have to be abandoned and can be treated continuously to achieve successful pregnancy.
