Figure 3: Serum luteinizing hormone (LH) levels after triptorelin stimulation were remarkably higher in the reversal group than in the nonreversal group (P < 0.01). At the time of diagnosis, 78.6% of the reversible patients (11/14) had LH60 min levels above 12 IU l−1 after triptorelin stimulation, while in the nonreversal group, only 4% of them achieved such a high level. These results indicate that reversible patients may retain partial reproductive axis function at initial diagnosis.
