Oocyte and embryo counts in index patient. The patient underwent nine consecutive IVF cycles and increased oocytes and embryo yields from cycle to cycle, starting with one egg and embryo, respectively, and ending up with 17 oocytes and 16 embryos in her ninth cycle. Gonadotropin stimulation was reduced in her last cycle for concerns about possible ovarian hyperstimulation. The patients advised us of her DHEA supplementation only after her sixth cycle.
