All women that fulfilled eligibility criteria were invited to participate. Those who agreed were included. No women was excluded.

Reporting Groups
  Description
Endometrial Injury Group Endometrial biopsy was performed once with a pipelle de Cornier® in the month before initiating controlled ovarian stimulation. The pipelle was introduced gently through the cervix up to the uterine fundus. The piston was then drawn back to the end of the biopsy cannula until it self-locks and creates a negative pressure. Aiming to wound the entire endometrium, the examiner applied regular back-and-forth movements while rotating the sampler covering the whole uterine cavity. This procedure was continued until fragments of uterine mucosa appeared within the sheath, which generally took 30 seconds.
Control Group Introduction of the speculum and wiping of the cervix with gaze for 30 seconds
