          Abstract

          To assess the effect of PRL on fertilization and cleavage of oocytes, PRL levels in serum and follicular fluid of normoprolactinemic women who had undergone in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer (IVF-ET) were determined, and the relationship between PRL levels and fertilization and cleavage rates was studied. A transient increase in serum PRL at the ovulatory phase was found in about half of the IVF-ET patients during clomiphene stimulation, and increased levels of PRL in serum and follicular fluid at the ovulatory phase may suppress the fertilization and cleavage of oocytes.
