- Ongoing Pregnancy Rate [ Time Frame: 8-9 weeks after blastocyst transfer in the fresh cycle ]Defined as the percentage of participants with the presence of at least 1 intrauterine pregnancy with a detectable fetal heartbeat at 10-11 weeks of gestation.
- Positive β-human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) Rate [ Time Frame: First test approximately 10-14 days after blastocyst transfer in the fresh cycle, with a second test approximately 2 days later if first test was positive ]Defined as the percentage of participants with 2 positive β-hCG tests within 2 days in serum.
- Clinical Pregnancy Rate [ Time Frame: 4-5 weeks after blastocyst transfer in the fresh cycle ]Defined as percentage of participants with transvaginal ultrasound (TVUS) showing at least 1 intrauterine gestational sac with fetal heart beat at 6-7 weeks of gestation.
- Early Pregnancy Loss [ Time Frame: At 10-11 weeks of gestation in the fresh cycle ]Defined as participants with 2 positive β-hCG tests but no ongoing pregnancy at 10-11 weeks of gestation in the fresh cycle. Percentage of participants with early pregnancy loss is presented.
- Follicular Development as Assessed by TVUS [ Time Frame: On stimulation Day 6 and last day of stimulation (a maximum of 20 stimulation days) ]Defined as average follicle size and average size of 3 largest follicles.
- Follicular Development as Assessed by TVUS [ Time Frame: On stimulation Day 6 and last day of stimulation (a maximum of 20 stimulation days) ]Defined as percentage of participants with follicles having a diameter of ≤9 mm, 10-11 mm, 12-14 mm, 15-16 mm, and ≥17 mm.
- Number of Oocytes Retrieved [ Time Frame: At oocyte retrieval visit (approximately 36 hours after hCG administration) ]
- Number of Metaphase II Oocytes [ Time Frame: At oocyte retrieval visit (approximately 36 hours after hCG administration) ]
- Fertilization Rate [ Time Frame: On day 1 post-insemination ]Defined as 100 times the ratio of number of fertilized 2 pronuclei oocytes to the number of oocytes retrieved, for each participant.
- Quality of Embryos [ Time Frame: 3 days after oocyte retrieval ]Assessed by blastomere uniformity, cell size, the degree of fragmentation, and visual signs of multinucleation.
- Quality of Embryos [ Time Frame: 3 days after oocyte retrieval ]Assessed by cleavage stage.
- Quality of Blastocysts [ Time Frame: 5 days after oocyte retrieval ]Assessed by blastocyst expansion and hatching status, blastocyst inner cell mass grading, and trophectoderm grading. The scoring was based on the classification system by Gardner and Schoolcraft, with additional categories for inner cell mass (degenerative or no inner cell mass) and trophectoderm (degenerative or very large cell).
