Empty Follicle or Not? A Case Report
Keywords:Empty follicle syndrome, Oocyte retrieval, Human chorionic gonadotrophin, BMI
Empty follicle syndrome is characterized by retrieving no oocytes in despite of achieving multiple follicle development in an IVF cycle. We report a case having a presumed empty follicle syndrome at 36th hour of human chorionic gonadotrophin (βhcg) administration and rescued by a second oocyte pick-up procedure performed at 42nd hour, without the need of a second dose of the drug. Intrauterine transfer of three good quality embryos resulted in a singleton pregnancy which ended with a healthy girl.
