Introduction:This pilot study was done to evaluate the effectiveness of intrauterineinstillation of autologous platelet rich plasma in the treatment of infertile woman with ≥2 IVF failures due to thin endometrium not responding to empirical medical therapies. Design: Prospective interventional study. Material and Methods: Intra uterine instillation of PRP was done in 50 women between 23 to 38 years with suboptimal endometrial receptivity, ≥ 2 IVF failures and HRT cycle cancellations over a course of 9 months. Frozen embryo transfer was done when optimal endometrial thickness and vascularity was achieved. Results: The mean endometrial thickness pre PRP was 5.78mm which increased to 7.20mm post-PRP (P value < 0.001). There was a statistically significant increase in endometrial vascularity. The mean PI uterine artery pre-PRP was 3.18 which decreased to 2.71 post PRP (P-value < 0.001). There was a statistically significant fall in uterine artery RI from 1.04 to 0.86 after PRP therapy. The implantation rate, clinical pregnancy rate were 15.3% & 33.3% respectively. One patient had early clinical pregnancy loss. Cervical ectopic pregnancy was diagnosed in 1 patient. 4 patients had DADC twins. Conclusion: PRP is a safe, inexpensive and acceptable alternative for endometrial preparation of infertile patients with ≥2 IVF failures due to suboptimal endometrium.
