Abstract

Background: Endometrial cavity fluid (ECF) is occasionally observed during assisted reproductive technology (ART) cycles. However, few reports have described its prevalence or significance. Methods and results: We examined the relationships between ECF, clinical pregnancy rate (CPR), tubal factor infertility and ultrasound-visible (USV) hydrosalpinges. In 843 ART cycles involving 721 patients, ECF was observed during stimulation in 57 cycles and after human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG) administration in 12 cycles, with an overall incidence of 8.2% (69/843). When ECF was observed during stimulation, the cancellation rate due to poor ovarian response was significantly higher (29.8 versus 16.9%, P
