  1. Statistical differences were calculated using the non-parametric Kruskal-Wallis H test, except for “oocyte fertilization rate” where the chi-square test was used
  2. Significant at P < 0.05. Values are expressed as mean ± standard deviation unless stated otherwise
  3. aSignificantly different from group B and group C, P<0.001
