Abstract


Objective: to evaluate the impact of intrauterine masses discovered in ultrasound during IVF-ICSI cycle on pregnancy rate and implantation. Study design: Case control study of all IVF cycles performed in our ART center from 2007 to February 2013. The study group consisted of 39 patients in whom an intrauterine mass was visualized in ultrasound during ovarian stimulation. The control group was composed of 39 age matched patients with normal endometrium. All patients were planned to have fresh embryo transfer. We also analyzed the hysteroscopic findings in patients who failed to be pregnant. Results: The mean size of intrauterine masses was 11.1 5.7 mm (ranging 2-22 mm). Pregnancy rate was significantly lower in the study group (9.1% versus 26.4%, p<0.05). There was no difference regarding implantation rate (6 % versus 10.6%, NS). Among the 17 patients who had a subsequent diagnostic hysteroscopy, 11 were effectively polyps (66%). Conclusion: According to our study, intrauterine masses diagnosed in ultrasound during ovarian stimulation are associated with decreased pregnancy rate.
