Needle-Free Monitoring for IVF Patient Cycles


Brief description of study

Salivary diagnostic testing is emerging as a less invasive, inexpensive alternative to serum analyte measurements with proven diagnostic accuracy in clinical settings. This study aims to continue analyzing aspects of the performance of salivary hormone competitive immunoassays for monitoring patient's reproductive hormone profiles in the reproductive cycle. Hormone levels will be monitored during treatment cycles for infertility.

Detailed Study Description

This study will be a prospective study to measure salivary and serum estrogen and progesterone levels in subject's voluntarily undergoing monitored infertility treatment cycles including controlled ovarian stimulation (COS) with oral agents or gonadotropins and controlled ovarian hyperstimulation (COH) for in vitro fertilization (IVF). Ultimately, the potential applicability and reliability of salivary steroid monitoring in IVF cycles will be assessed.
