Some studies have concluded that the use of the Growth Hormone (GH) can increase the clinical pregnancy rates in poor responders to IVF stimulation. However, it may work only if added in the month prior to stimulation with gonadotropins or during the stimulation phase, as it may help increase the number of antral follicles.

Adding GH depends on each patient, and it is often applied in cases of women who have experienced previous IVF failure due to poor ovarian response in spite of maximal doses of gonadotropins.
