Introduction: One of the determining factors in successful assisted reproduction technology is endometrial volume. The aim of this study is to evaluate the importance of endometrial volume on the day of HCG administration by live 3 dimensional ultrasound in predicting pregnancy in ART cycle. Materials and Methods: Endometrial volume was measured by 3Dimensional ultrasound on the day of HCG administration. According to endometrial volume, patients were divided to 3 subgroups: (2cc, 2-4.5cc, 4.5cc). Pregnancy rate were compared between all groups. Results: One hundred and sixty patients were included in the study. 73(36.5%) became pregnant after IVF. No significant cut-off value was found for endometrial volume. Conclusion: Endometrial volume on the day of HCG administration could not be used as a predictor of implantation in ART successful.

It is estimated that fifty to seventy-five per cent of pregnancies are lost due to a failure of implantation. There is evidence that there is an early secretion of human chorionic...
