Failure to aspirate oocytes after ovarian stimulation for an in vitro fertilization cycle, after confirming normal folliculogenesis and steroidogenesis occurs in about 0.2-7% of the cycles. This condition is known as empty follicle syndrome. Most of the time, it may be due to human or pharmacological error, but rarely there is an entity called genuine empty follicle syndrome where no known cause can be identified.
