One patient (age 40) underwent four IVF cycles; the first two cycles were Age Parity D3 FSH AFC IVF cycles FET Outcome.

The researchers found that Essure placement for hydrosalpinx prior to IVF-ET results in excellent pregnancy rates and outcomes. Four out of six patients conceived (66.6 percent pregnancy rate). And three out of six patients delivered (50 percent live birth rate), with no pregnancy complications. The mean age was 37.5 years old.
