Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
the study group, 45 women
Procedure: uterine cavity injection of day 2 embryo culture supernatant
On the day 2, the embryos were translated from the old dish to a new dish with fresh media and cultured continuously. In study group, the embryo culture supernatant at the old dish were aspirated by using embryo transfer catheter (COOK-5000, Australia) and injected into the patient's uterine cavity. But in the control group, this intervention was not done. Conventional ET was performed on the third day of embryo culture for both groups.
No Intervention: 2
the control group, 45 women
