Abstract

In a retrospective chart review study women taking selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors antidepressants were compared with a matched comparison group to determine whether there were any differences in IVF outcome-related variables. There were no significant differences between the groups in peak E2, number of oocytes retrieved, number of oocytes fertilized, percentage of 8-cell or blastocysts developed, day of transfer, or initial hCG values; however, 40% of women taking selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors had ongoing pregnancies compared to 51% of women not taking selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors.
