  1. The numbers reflect the percentages of total fatty acid methyl esters. The fatty acids whose content were more than 0.01% were shown in our data. *P < 0.05 vs. NC group; **P < 0.01 vs. NC group; aP < 0.05 vs. COH group; aaP < 0.01 vs. COH group; bP < 0.05 vs. IVF group; bbP < 0.01 vs. IVF group. Data are presented as the means ± SD.
