Abstract

Oocyte retrieval under transvaginal ultrasonographic guidance has been used for in vitro fertilization-intracytoplasmic sperm injection. Despite considerable advances in the assisted reproductive techniques, the efficacy of follicular flushing during egg collection remains controversial. The aim of this study was to compare the follicular aspiration only and aspiration + flushing methods in terms of retrieved oocyte number and clinical pregnancy rates.
