To determine whether individual subject variation in ovarian response between repeated cycles with the same ovarian stimulation protocol can be predicted. DESIGN: Retrospective data analysis. SETTING: Multicenter, open-label, uncontrolled clinical trial. PATIENT(S): Women aged 18-39 from a phase 3, open-label, uncontrolled trial with complete data across all cycles (n = 176). INTERVENTION(S): Up to three cycles of a single injection of 150 ?g corifollitropin alfa for 7 days, then daily recombinant FSH/hMG until three follicles reached =17 mm. Gonadotropin-releasing hormone antagonist from stimulation day 5 until day of hCG administration. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Numbers of follicles =11 mm on day of hCG in cycles 1-3, transition in ovarian response type between cycles from low (0-
