ABSTRACT
Introduction: To investigate whether pre and post embryo transfer heparin therapy compare to post embryo transfer heparin therapy increase the pregnancy rate in women with IVF implantation failure. Materials and Methods: A randomized controlled trial, transfer of cryopreserved embryos, among women with IVF implantation failure history. Pre and post embryo transfer heparin therapy was study group (n=45) and post embryo transfer heparin therapy was control group (n=43). Results: There was no significant difference in pregnancy rates between two groups; for example, Beta HCG positive rate were 42% (18.43) and 40% (18.45), in control group and study group, respectively, and the generalized estimating equation covariate adjusted relative Beta HCG positive rate was 0.93 (95% confidence interval, 0.44-2.17). Conclusion: Heparin treatment during pre and post embryo transfer did not improve pregnancy rates in women with IVF implantation failure history.
