We thank the communicator for his query on why we did not consider the ethnic differences in our study population. We acknowledge the importance and relevance of this point. However, we would like to state that our center is a small IVF clinic in the South of India, where we have a majority of South Indian women attending our clinics. We do have some floating population of other ethnicities from various parts of India, but this is only a small population and unfortunately, we don't have access to this data in our archives to solidly comment on this subject. We do recognize from previous literature that North Indian women are more likely to present with PCOS and various other problems compared to south Indian women showing a marked difference in infertility patterns. However, we do concede that this is a limitation of our study and we will have to consider this point for future studies of this nature. Thank you for your comment.
