Objective: To detect the effect of late coasting on oocyte quality.
Design: Retrospective study.
Setting: Samir Abbas Medical Center

Main outcome measure(s) : Oocyte quality.
Results: number of mature oocytes was identical in both groups,however the significant difference was in the oocyte recovery rate which was higher in the control group (120) than in the coasting group(92)
Conclusion(s): Oocyte quality is not affected after using coasting as a method for prevention of OHSS. Effect of late coasting used in the prevention of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome on oocyte quality
