Brief Summary:
Implantation of the human embryo is the limiting factor in the success of invitro-fertilization and embryo transfer(IVF-ET).We wanted to find out whether creating a local injury to the endometrium in the non-transfer cycle would improve the IVF-ET outcome in the subsequent cycle.We believe that the injury created causes release of substances which help in implantation.
