Table 9 Comparisons between patients having day 3 embryo transfer with moderate (>3000 < 4200 pg/ml) or high (>4200 pg/ml) estradiol levels on the day of hCG administration

From: In high responding patients undergoing an initial IVF cycle, elevated estradiol on the day of hCG has no effect on live birth rate
