  Purpose

It was previously demonstrated in in vitro fertilization (IVF) patients that local injury of the endometrium during a spontaneous menstrual cycle that precedes IVF treatment doubled the rates of implantation and pregnancy. The hypothesis of our present study is that the endometrial injury procedure will have the same beneficial effect in patients undergoing controlled ovarian hyperstimulation (COH) combined with intrauterine insemination (IUI).

Experimental: Clomiphene citrate + IUI + endometrial biopsy
Clomiphene citrate + IUI + endometrial biopsy
Procedure: endometrial biopsy
two endometrial biopsies will be taken with a PIPELLE catheter on days 12 and 21 of the spontaneous menstrual cycle that precedes the fertility treatment.
No Intervention: Clomiphene citrate + IUI
Experimental: gonadotrophines + IUI + endometrial biopsy
two endometrial biopsies will be taken with a PIPELLE catheter on days 12 and 21 of the spontaneous menstrual cycle that precedes the fertility treatment.
Procedure: endometrial biopsy

No Intervention: gonadotrophines + IUI
Experimental: natural cycle + IUI + endometrail biopsy
two endometrial biopsies will be taken with a PIPELLE catheter on days 12 and 21 of the spontaneous menstrual cycle that precedes the fertility treatment.
Procedure: natural cycle + IUI + endometrial biopsy
two endometrial biopsies will be taken with a PIPELLE catheter on days 12 and 21 of the spontaneous menstrual cycle that precedes the fertility treatment.
No Intervention: natural cycle + IUI

Detailed Description:

In order to test our hypothesis, we will perform the simple procedure of local injury of the endometrium using a "Pipelle" biopsy catheter during the spontaneous menstrual cycle that precedes a COH + IUI treatment.
