The patients undertaking a single-dose protocol for GnRH antagonist were associated with elevated serum and follicular levels of nitric oxide (NO) and decreased embryo quality scores compared with those who underwent the long protocol for GnRH agonist. The relatively poor embryo quality may be NO related instead of Fas related.
