This study included women aged > 40 years (range, 40–43 years) with previous experience of POR or poor ovarian reserve (POSEIDON group 4) undergoing their first ART treatment in our institution between January 2009 and March 2014. These patients were given the option of using GH, but may or may not have elected to utilize GH during the cycle when initially offered (due to costs or other concerns). This cohort study evaluated 182 cycles with and 160 without GH supplementation.
