Abstract

PURPOSE:

To determine if the use of Embryo glue improves implantation and pregnancy rates following embryo transfer (ET) in women who failed to conceive in three previous attempts.

METHODS:

A matched controlled study was performed in women undergoing IVF-ET, donor oocyte recipients and women using their own oocytes having fresh or frozen ETs. A woman having Embryo glue was matched with the very next woman not using glue within six months of age and having the same number of previous failed ETs.

RESULTS:

Embryo glue did not seem to improve pregnancy or implantation rates. In fact, in evaluating fresh embryo transfers there was a significantly higher live delivered pregnancy rate in the women not using Embryo glue (39.3%) vs those using the glue (14.3%).

CONCLUSIONS:

Embryo glue does not improve pregnancy outcome in women failing in previous IVF cycles.
