Table 2 Day 2-3 serum hormonal concentrations and ovarian volume in 34 cycles of hMG ovarian stimulation in 20 anovulatory women with PCOS

From: The influence of circulating anti-Müllerian hormone on ovarian responsiveness to ovulation induction with gonadotrophins in women with polycystic ovarian syndrome: a pilot study

  Cycles with poor response to FSH stimulation* (n = 15) Cycles with good response to FSH stimulation** (n = 19) p
LH (IU/L) 6.7 (1.3-17.4) 8.6 (5.2-18.9) .348
FSH (IU/L) 4.5 (4.0-6.0) 4.5 (1.0-14.1) .650
Testosterone (nmol/l) 2.6 (0.9-3.6) 2.1 (1.6-3.6) .705
FAI 7.0 (2.0-13.0) 6.0 (3.0-13.0) .983
Ovarian volume (ml) 14.1 (8.5-16.7) 10.9 (8.0-16.7) .188
AMH (ng/ml) 6.5 (5.1-13.4) 4.0 (2.2-10.2) .007
  1. The results are compared between cycles with poor response and those with good response. Values are presented as median (range). Mann-Whitney test was used for comparisons.
  2. *Poor response, is defined as absence of or delayed ovulation (>20 days of hMG stimulation).
  3. **Good response is defined as occurrence of ovulation within 20 days of hMG stimulation.
