Abstract

 Introduction: The poor ovarian response to external gonadotropins is one of the common problems in assisted reproductive technology that occurs in 9%-26% of treatment cycles and can cause cancelling of the cycle, achieving small number of oocytes and finally decreasing the pregnancy rate. With beginning of ovarian aging, the ovarian reserve decreases but in the young group also the poor response is seen sometimes. There are several reports about the adjuvant therapy such as taking the high doses of gonadotropins, glucocotricoids and low doses of aspirin to improve the ovarian response.Materials and Methods: In this study, 140 infertile women, <35 years old underwent the ICSI cycles, were divided into two groups. In group 1 (study group) starting with GNRH-a, two dexamethasone pills and in group 2 (control), two folic acid pills (placebo) were randomly prescribed. The number of follicles, oocytes and embryos, HMG ampules and pregnancy rate was compared between two groups. Data were analyzed with SPSS software and t-test (p<0.05).Results: There was no significant difference between two groups regarding the age, hormonal assay results, number of HMG ampoules injected and pregnancy rate, but in dexamethasone group more follicules, oocytes and good quality embryos were achieved, that was statistically significant.Conclusion: By increasing the oocytes number and good quality embryos, there will be a higher chance of pregnancy and freezing extra embryos for using in next unstimulated cycles.
