Abstract
One hundred thirty-five infertile patients were enrolled to investigate the efficacy of phloroglucinol-induced inhibition of the endometrial fundocervical wave and its effect on in vitro fertilization (IVF). We found that phloroglucinol significantly inhibited (P < 0.05) peristaltic fundocervical wave, suggesting a feasible way of application of phloroglucinol to suppress endometrial waves during IVF.
