Abstract: Study Method:
Total of 50 patients in vitro fertilization/intracytoplasmic sperm injection(IVF/ICSI) cycles participated in this prospective study. The endometrial thickness, endometrial morphology and the level of serum progesterone were determined on the day hCG was given. Serum beta hCG was measured 14 days after embryos transfer. The association between endometrial thickness, endometrial morphology and level of serum progesterone with pregnancy was analyzed.
Result: Pregnancy was achieved in 10 out of 50 patients (20.0%). The mean endometrial thickness for the pregnant group was 9.86 ±1.68 mm, 7 out of 10 pregnant patients had trilaminar endometrium. The mean progesterone level was 3.717 ± 1.071nmol/L for the pregnant group and 1.408 ± 4.691nmol/L for the non-pregnant group. All differences were not statistically significant.
Conclusion: Endometrial thickness, endometrial morphology and the level of serum progesterone on the hCG day was not significantly associated with the outcome of IVF/ ICSI cycles.
