Vaginal Progesterone Versus Progesterone in Oil in Donor Egg Recipient In Vitro Fertilization Cycles Utilizing Vitrified Donor Eggs
Comparison of the Effectiveness of Micronized Vaginal Progesterone (Endometrin, Ferring) Vs. Progesterone in Oil for Luteal Phase Support in Donor Egg Recipient IVF Cycles Utilizing Previously Vitrified Donor Oocytes

The aim of this study is to evaluate both pharmaceutical therapy and advanced treatment techniques for infertile patients requiring in-vitro fertilization utilizing donor eggs.

The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the clinical pregnancy rate of micronized progesterone (Endometrin, Ferring Pharmaceuticals) compared to progesterone in oil injections in in-vitro fertilization (IVF) donor egg recipients. The secondary objective is to evaluate the effectiveness of freezing/vitrification of donor eggs. Effectiveness of vitrification will be evaluated by egg thaw/survival, fertilization, and implantation rates.

Primary Purpose: Treatment
Infertility
  • Drug: Endometrin
    100 mg per vagina TID
  • Drug: Progesterone in Oil
    50 mg IM injection daily
  • Active Comparator: Progesterone in Oil

    Donor egg recipients will begin progesterone 50 mg IM injection starting the day after donor egg fertilization, and continue daily until pregnancy results can be determined.

    If pregnant, donor egg recipient will continue progesterone 50 mg IM injections daily until approximately 9 weeks of pregnancy.

    Intervention: Drug: Progesterone in Oil
  • Active Comparator: Endometrin

    Donor egg recipients will begin Endometrin 100 mg per vagina three times daily starting the day after donor egg fertilization and continue until pregnancy result can be determined.

    If pregnant, donor egg recipients will continue Endometrin 100 mg TID until approximately 9 weeks of pregnancy.

    Intervention: Drug: Endometrin
