Objective: To evaluate the value of hysteroscopy in patients with endometrial polyp(s) before starting the first IVF/ICSI treatment.
Materials and Methods: A total of 141 infertile women were divided into 2 groups according to whether they had already had IVF/ICSI treatment before hysteroscopy. 78 patients in group I didn’t have IVF/ICSI Embryo Transfer (ET) before hysteroscopic removal of polyps while another 63 patients group II already had IVF/ICSI ET at least once. General information and pregnancy outcomes were compared and studied retrospectively.
Results: In group I, more oocytes were retrieved (13.46 ± 6.48 vs. 10.63 ± 4.72; P<0.05) and more embryos were cryopreserved (4.38 ± 4.05 vs. 3.06 ± 2.63; P<0.05), with statistical significance. Both clinical pregnancy rate (87.2% vs.71.4%; P<0.05) and ongoing pregnancy (73.1% vs. 55.6%, P<0.05) rate in group I were significantly higher than group II.
Conclusion: EPs do have some negative effects on pregnancy and hysteroscopic removal of polyps before starting the first IVF/ICSI treatment could help relieve some unnecessary burdens of recurrent failure caused by IVF/ICSI ET.
