Purpose: Most studies reported estradiol (E-2) levels attained on day of hCG administration when investigating effect of E-2 on IVF outcome. We studied whether a relationship exists between the area under the curve for E-2 levels (AUC-E-2) and E-2 levels on hCG day during IVF-ET.Methods: Retrospectively, we analyzed data for 313 patients who completed one IVF-ET cycle each. Patients were sorted according to AUC-E-2 levels.
