Objective. The aim of this study is to evaluate the thyroid status influence on oocytes and embryo formation until the establishment of biochemical pregnancy.
Materials and methods. Medical records of women that underwent assisted reproductive techniques was examined (ART). The only inclusion criteria was the presence of a documented evaluation of thyroid functionality. The following assisted reproductive techniques were used: ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection); FIV-ET (in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer); AIH (Artificial Insemination Homologous).
Results and conclusion. Based on our clinical observations it is assumable that thyroid homeostasis affects implant phase fertility and following embryo growth, rather than the first pre-implant phase considered in this study (oocytes and zygotes development).
