OBJECTIVE: To determine preovulatory uterine sonographic predictors of pregnancy in women undergoing ovulation induction for assisted reproductive treatments. DESIGN: Prospective evaluation of uterine sonographic and vascular flow profiles in women stimulated with leuprolide acetate and hMG. SETTING: Private fertility center and tertiary-care academic center. PATIENTS: Ninety-six women underwent 102 cycles of ovulation induction for IVF (46), GIFT (20), and zygote intrafallopian transfer (36). MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Endometrial texture, thickness, resistance index at the first branch of uterine artery, diastolic blood flow, and pregnancy outcome (no conception, spontaneous abortion, and delivery). RESULTS: Triple-lined pattern was predominant in women who delivered liveborn infants (P < 0.005). Endometrial pattern and diastolic blood flow were the only predictive markers of term pregnancy (P < 0.001 and P < 0.05, respectively). CONCLUSION: Preovulatory triple-lined sonographic endometrial texture and the presence of end diastole blood velocities at the first branch of uterine artery are the most important uterine predictors of conception.
