Dunya IVF specialists on the comparison of pregnancy outcomes of cervical mucus washing in elective single‑embryo transfers

Endometrial Thickness Research

Dunya IVF Clinic doctors Dr. Alper and Dr. Berk, have contributed alongside colleagues in recent research regarding the success of fresh elective single-embryo transfers (ET) in women under the age of 37 using two different solutions for cervical cleaning: G-Rinse medium and physiological saline solution, published in the Journal of Assisted Reproduction and Genetics on SpringerLink.

The study included 172 women, with 75 in the G-Rinse group and 97 in the saline group. The clinical pregnancy rate (CPR) and live birth rate (LBR) were similar in both groups, and the difference was not statistically significant.

The results of our study indicate that there was no significant difference in clinical pregnancy rate (CPR) and live birth rate (LBR) when using a physiologic saline solution instead of G-Rinse medium solution for ectocervical washings during embryo transfer. Therefore, for selected patients, using physiologic saline solution can be considered as a safe and effective alternative approach to G-Rinse solution, given its lower cost, easy accessibility, and widespread use.
