Optimal Timing For Embryo Transfer For Low Responder Patients
Women undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) therapy, who are low responder and agree to enter the trial will be randomized to a study group, for whom embryo transfer will be done on the same day as oocyte aspiration and fertilization; and a control group for whom embryo transfer will be performed 48 to 72 hours later, as is the current accepted practice.
Allocation: Randomized, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A medical-surgical specialty concerned with the morphology, physiology, biochemistry, and pathology of reproduction in man and other animals, and on the biological, medical, and veterinary problems of fertility and lactation. It includes ovulation induction, diagnosis of infertility and recurrent pregnancy loss, and assisted reproductive technologies such as embryo transfer, in vitro fertilization, and intrafallopian transfer of zygotes.

Single Embryo Transfer
The techniques used to select and/or place only one embryo from FERTILIZATION IN VITRO into the uterine cavity to establish a singleton pregnancy.
Inability to reproduce after a specified period of unprotected intercourse. Reproductive sterility is permanent infertility.
The transfer of mammalian embryos from an in vivo or in vitro environment to a suitable host to improve pregnancy or gestational outcome in human or animal. In human fertility treatment programs, preimplantation embryos ranging from the 4-cell stage to the blastocyst stage are transferred to the uterine cavity between 3-5 days after FERTILIZATION IN VITRO.
The inability of the male to effect FERTILIZATION of an OVUM after a specified period of unprotected intercourse. Male sterility is permanent infertility.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate two types of embryo transfer procedure. The investigators will compare direct embryo transfer against afterloading embryo transfer.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether embryo transfer on day 3 versus day 5 shows a significant difference in implantation, clinical pregnancy, live birth, miscarriage and mult...
Studies have shown that endometrial sampling in the month prior to embryo transfer may increase pregnancy rates. We wish to test this hypothesis by performing a hysteroscopy and curettage...
The aim of this study is to demonstrate the efficacy of a single embryo transfer at blastocyst stage (Day 5) after co-culture on Autologous Endometrial Cell Culture (AECC) versus transfer...
A prospective randomized trial comparing Cook K-SOFT-5100 and Frydman classical catheter 4.5 for embryo transfer in human IVF/ICSI was performed. Three experienced operators participated...
Day 2 embryo transfer has been suggested as a method to improve pregnancy rates in poor responders compared with day 3 transfer. Our prospective randomized controlled trial does not show a difference...
OBJECTIVE: To describe outcomes of the first 100 consecutive infertility patients participating in a risk-sharing program with uncomplicated eligibility requirements. The program included the costs of...
BACKGROUND In order to optimize IVF strategies, particularly with the use of single embryo transfer, good predictive models are required. Here, we develop a model to allow such prediction, and the str...
Acupuncture has been used to treat infertility extensively, including ovulatory dysfunction, in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer (IVF-ET), and male infertility. This review summarizes the recen...
OBJECTIVE: To consider the risk of intercourse without contraception during infertility treatment. DESIGN: Case report. SETTING: Leiden University Medical Center. PATIENT(S): An infertile couple under...
