"Beginning treatment with immediate IVF, compared with initial treatments of superovulation
and IUI, results in [a] significantly higher number of live-born infants."
At 6-8 weeks of age, the female mice underwent superovulation
[equine chorionic gonadotropin followed by human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), both at 5.0 IU in 0.1 mL saline; both from Calbiochem, Gibbstown, NJ] or superovulation
and mating as described previously (Jefferson et al.
and embryo transfer in Holstein cattle using sexed sperm Theriogenology 71: 68-73.
BOX 12-1 Focus on Fertility: Synchronizing Estrus and Ovulation The ability to regulate timing of estrus and ovulation is essential for effective superovulation
and embryo transfer and also enhances effectiveness of artificial insemination.

induction in infertile women.
The female partners underwent superovulation
using a standardised regimen and follow-up procedure.
The risks to women who provide eggs are associated primarily with the drugs used to induce superovulation
. Severe ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome is a rare but life-threatening event.
Beginning on the morning of days 13 of the estrous cycle (day 0=estrus), ewes received twice daily (morning and evening) intramuscular injections of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH; to induce superovulation
) as follows: Day 13, 5 units/injection; Day 14, 4 units/injection; and Day 15, 3 units/injection.
