In a randomized prospective study, 125 women with World Health Organization class II anovulation received 50 mg of clomiphene citrate alone (group A, n = 65) or 50 mg of clomiphene citrate plus hCG (group B, n = 60) in a total of 125 cycles during natural intercourse-advised cycles. There were no statistically significant differences between groups regarding pregnancy outcomes and midluteal P levels, but luteal phase length was longer in group A.
