Abstract/OtherAbstract:
OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the combined effect of endometrial thickness and anatomic uterine factors on clinical outcome in oocyte donation recipients.
DESIGN: Retrospective analysis of oocyte donation cycles conducted between 2005 and 2010.
SETTING: Two private IVF centers.
PATIENT(S): A total of 737 donor oocyte cycles.
INTERVENTION(S): None.
MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Clinical pregnancy and live birth rates.
RESULT(S): No statistically significant difference was found in clinical pregnancy rates and live birth rates in cycles with endometrial thickness <6 mm compared with those with endometrial thickness >10 mm. However, a relatively high rate of live births was found within a medium range of endometrial thickness (8.2-10 mm). All intrauterine adhesion cases occurred in cycles with thinner endometrium.
CONCLUSION(S): No statistically significant difference was found in clinical pregnancy rates and live birth rates in cycles with endometrial thickness <6 mm compared with those with thickness >6 mm. A relatively high rate of live births was found within a medium range of endometrial thickness (9.1-10 mm).
