Cortisol levels in human follicular fluid

Cortisol levels in human follicular fluid

Fertility and Sterility 51(3): 538-541

This study shows that cortisol levels in follicular fluids in stimulated cycles were correlated with oocyte maturity and in vitro fertilizability. The levels were significantly higher than the concentrations found in spontaneous cycles. Our findings suggest that the presence of cortisol in follicular fluid may play a role in follicular development and oocyte maturation.
