Day of Embryo Transfer for Patients Undergoing In Vitro Fertilization
We are examining whether pregnancy rates differ based on day of embryo transfer in patients
who replace all available embryos after an In vitro Fertilization (IVF) cycle. Patients must
be undergoing IVF treatment at Stanford University and patients will not receive compensation
for their participation (no medical costs covered or patient payment for participation).
Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.
