Abstract

Transvaginal sonography (TVS) affords detailed depiction of the endometrium. Although there have been several reports using transabdominal sonography which have described changes in the endometrium during ovulation induction prior to in vitro fertilization-embryo transfer (IVF-ET), none have examined this with TVS [1–3]. It is the purpose of this study to utilize the improved resolution of TVS for the evaluation of endometrial changes found in conception versus nonconception IVF groups during ovulation induction. These changes will be correlated with the number of mature follicles, estradiol values, ova retrieved, and embryos transferred.
