A total of 60 women with endometrioma and a control population of 60 women without endometrioma in the same period were randomly selected underwent the injection IVF-ICSI treatment.

Given that PGT-SR is a chromosomal abnormality hereditary in nature, whereas PGT-A is sporadic in addition to the contrasting funding policies, the two cohorts were analyzed separately. To achieve the proposed objective, the two groups under analysis were grouped in accordance with their respective coverage systems for infertility.ResultsAmong translocation patients, ...

CONCLUSION: In women with infertility undergoing fertility work-up, tubal flushing with oil-based contrast probably increases clinical pregnancy rates within 6 months and may increase subsequent live birth rates, compared to tubal flushing with water-based contrast and compared to no intervention. Evidence on fertility outcomes beyond 6 months is insufficient. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved. PMID: 30740799 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
