INTRODUCTION: The aim of the study was to compare the outcomes of patients > 38 years of age who underwent COH/IUI and those who underwent IVF treatment.
METHODS: 113 patients who meet the inclusion criteria were enrolled into the study. Of the 113 patients; 42 patients who underwent KOH/IUI and 71
patients who underwent IVF treatment. The biochemical, clinical and ongoing pregnancy rates were compared between two groups.
RESULTS: There were significant differences in terms of biochemical and clinical pregnancy rates between two groups and those were higher in IVF treatment (p1=0.033, p2=0.031). Ongoing pregnancy rate was higher in IVF treatment group but there was no significant difference between two groups (p=0.084).
DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: IVF treatment may be first line treatment option in advanced age women because of the higher success rates of IVF treatment than COH/IUI treatment.
