Assessing the efficacy and safety of Sildenafil < em > vs < /em > . Nifedipine in improving endometrial blood flow and thickness in women with recurrent first-trimester miscarriage
This study aims to compare the safety and efficacy of Nifedipine and Sildenafil in improving endometrial blood flow and thickness in Iraqi women with recurrent first-trimester miscarriages.
