Table 3 Comparison of the characteristics and IVF outcomes between poor responders aged 35 years with high FF BMP-15 levels and normal responders

From: Bone morphogenetic protein-15 in follicle fluid combined with age may differentiate between successful and unsuccessful poor ovarian responders

ET cycle/started cycle 83.9% 95.8% 0.004b
No. of embryos transferred 2 (0–3) 2 (0–3) <0.001a
Implantation rate/embryo 28.9% 24.8% 0.436 b
Chemical pregnancy rate/ET cycle 44.7% 47.1% 0.756b
