Abstract Observation of response to gonadotropins in the treatment of anovulation has allowed us to define the estrogen excretion pattern which leads to a successful single pregnancy. The typical pattern shows a low pretreatment urinary total estrogen excretion; treatment with gonadotropins, of human pituitary origin, is continued for about 14 days. There is a predictable rate of rise of preovulatory estrogen excretion (30 μg/24 hr2). Human chorionic gonadotropin-about 4000 IU-should be given when an estrogen excretion of 75-100 μg/24 hr has been obtained. The use of this pattern of ovarian response is put forward as a useful guide in the planning of gonadotropin therapy.
