This study is to investigate the clinical efficacy of low-dose FSH regimen, comparing with clomiphene citrate and human menopausal gonadotropin (CC/hMG) regimen. METHODS: Retrospective study of the ovulatory factor infertility 39 patients who had been treated by intrauterine insemination (IUI). The 31 cycles of 21 patients were stimulated by CC/hMG regimen, the 22 cycles of 18 patients were stimulated by low-dose FSH regimen. We compared the rate of clinical pregnancy, multiple pregnancy and ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) of both group. RESULTS: The rate of clinical pregnancy of the CC/hMG group was 25.7% per cycle, and that of the low-dose FSH group was 54.5% per cycle. The low-dose FSH group showed a higher rate of clinical pregnancy per cycle than CC/hMG group (p=0.028). However, no differences was found statistically in the rate of multiple pregnancy and OHSS between CC/hMG group (22.2%, 5.7%) and low-dose FSH group (33.3%, 13.6%). CONCLUSION: This study showed that the low-dose FSH regimen is superior to CC/hMG regimen in getting clinical pregnancy, but dose not reduce the ovulation induction complications.
