This study was undertaken to evaluate the effectiveness of a new, constant low-dose, variable-length estrogen replacement therapy in preparing the endometrium of women suffering premature ovarian failure for embryo implantation.

This study proves the efficacy of low-dosage variable-length estrogen replacement therapy for preparing the endometrium for embryo implantation in patients suffering premature ovarian failure. These studies confirm earlier observations that sequentially increasing doses of estrogen during the follicular phase are unnecessary for implantation and that the length of t..
