Aims: Study of intrauterine infusion of autologous platelet rich plasma in unresponsive thin endometrium in frozen ET cycle .Thin endometrium still remains a big challenge for clinicians, creating so much burden in the form of cycle cancellation, unplanned freezing of embryo and even need for surrogacy. Intrauterine infusion of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is newer modality of treatment in thin endometrium, in various studies showing promising results. Material and methods: Our study was prospective randomised controlled trial done from 1 August 2018 to 31 May 2019 at a tertiary infertility centre, New Delhi, India. 30 patients undergoing frozen embryo transfer with history of thin endometriun (less than 7 mm) with normal hysteroscopic examination were enrolled. Patients with platelet count less than 1.50000/dl, uncorrected asherman syndrome, submucosal polyp, fibroid or congenital uterine anomaly and with history of systemic diseases were excluded from study. From day 2 of menses tab estradiol valerate was started in dose of 6–8 mg/day. It was increased up to 12 mg/day gradually after reviewing endometrial thickness serially. Patients with thin endometrium on day 10/11 received PRP on day 11 and repeat dose after 48 hours if endometrial thickness was less than 7 mm. Frozen embryo transfer was done in patients who achieved endometrial thickness 7 mm or more. Results: The mean pre-treatment endometrial thickness was 5.42 mm, which significantly increased to 6.64 mm, post treatment (P < 0.001). 8 patients out of 30 in our study could not achieve an optimal pattern of endometrium after treatment and embryo transfer was postponed. The positive beta human chorionic gonadotropin rate was 46.66%, and clinical pregnancy rate was 33.33% which is not statistically significant. Conclusion: In this study, we found PRP has effective role in thin endometrial cases.
