Our study was designed to assess junctional zone contractility before and after this procedure in 20 patients at the time of mock embryo transfer (mid-luteal phase, at commencement of down-regulation). Real-time transvaginal ultrasound and computer technology was used to evaluate the contraction pattern and frequency. When a tenaculum was applied, the total… CONTINUE READING
