Reproductive Partners Participates in New IVF Progesterone Delivery System Study

Southern California fertility center participates in a national study to explore new IVF progesterone delivery systems replacing intramuscular injections.

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Reproductive Partners Medical Group a leading Southern California fertility center esteemed for their excellent IVF success rates and national reputation was recently selected as a participant in a national, multi-center study exploring new progesterone delivery systems to replace intramuscular injections. Patients going through in vitro fertilization (IVF) often describe the progesterone injections as the most difficult and painful part of the IVF cycle. For more than 30 years doctors have been seeking effective alternatives to these painful injections.

The study compares an FDA-approved vaginal progesterone, Endometrin, with a new formulation which is administered subcutaneously, similar to the relatively painless fertility drug injections. Patients will be randomized to receive either the vaginal or subcutaneous progesterone until the pregnancy test and then until about 10 weeks of pregnancy. In case of unacceptable side effects the patient will be offered an alternative medication. Side effects are usually local reactions and mild.

Benefits to patients include free progesterone medications as well as a $1,500 honorarium for participating and completing the study questionnaires.

Participating patients will be IVF candidates, including those undergoing ICSI, Blastocyst and PGD, who are age 18-42 who have had less than three prior IVF cycles and an FSH less than 15IU/L and estradiol less than 80 pg/mL. Other exclusion criteria exist.
