Corpus Luteal Contribution to Maternal Pregnancy Physiology and Outcomes in ART


The purpose of this study is to determine when using Assistive Reproductive Technology (ART), if there may be an increase or decrease in a certain hormone that helps the functioning of your heart, blood vessels, and kidneys. An additional aim is to assess if it differs in pregnancies conceived normally compared to those assisted by ART. Baseline assessment will be made before pregnancy, after subject becomes pregnant, and 3-6 months after delivery.
