Results: A total of 137 women presenting with primary or secondary infertility were enrolled in the study.
Clinical pregnancy was observed in 44/71 (61.9%) patients in the intervention group and 33/66 (50%) in the group without endometrial scratching (p value = 0.16).

Many factors are now being studied to improve the implantation rate, one being endometrial artificial injury (endometrial scratching).By gathering our knowledge together, we aim to gain further common insights into the issues facing this field.

The term pre-embryo has been embraced wholeheartedly by IVF practitioners for reasons that are political, not scientific. 3] "The question came up of what is an embryo, when does an embryo exist, when does it occur. These pronuclei fuse with each other to produce the single, diploid, 2N nucleus of the fertilized zygote. The combination of 23 chromosomes present in each pronucleus results in 46 chromosomes in the zygote. 12}] "Almost all higher animals start their lives from a single cell, the fertilized ovum (zygote)...
