The menstrual cycle outcome of 71 regularly menstruating women was ovulatory in 60.5% of the cases, luteal phase defect in 25.3%, luteinized unruptured follicle in 11.2%, and anovulatory in 2.8%. Significantly lower resistance indices were seen in the uterine, arcuate, radial, and spiral arteries of the ovulatory group in the midluteal phase, which was inversely related to the P level.
