With hormonally stimulated antral follicle growth (followed by sexual intercourse/natural conception): i. can you consistently induce ovulations (what kind of ovarian defects precludes it completely?); ii. can you control a number of ovulations (if induction is successful)?; iii. can you overcome defects in oocyte maturation/competence?; iv. can you achieve pregnancies if the main cause of infertility is previously undetected male factor?; and v. can you monitor early embryonic development and/or pre-select an embryo(s) that is/are free of genetic aberrations?

i. premature ovarian failure precludes it

ii. No. You can try by starting with a low dose but we can not always predict response.

iii. I don't know what defects you are referring to.

iv. Sometimes depending on the severity of the male factor.

v.only with IVF with PGS.
