  OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether autologous platelet-rich plasma infusion during endometrial local injury at thin endometrium in infertile women can avoid the cancellation of embryo transfer cycle caused by endometrial factors.

STUDY DESIGN: Eleven patients who had undergone previous frozen embryo transfer cycles were recruited into the study. After an endometrial local injury, autologous platelet-rich plasma (PRP) was infused into the uterine cavity at least once until endometrium thickness reached ≥7 mm.

RESULTS: The endometrium thickness of 10 patients was found to be ≥7 mm after PRP injection at time of endometrial local injury. Nine of those patients achieved pregnancy after embryo transfer.

CONCLUSION: PRP injection during endometrial local injury increased endometrial thickness and avoided the cancellation of embryo transfer cycle caused by endometrial factors.
