Background: There have been numerous advances in the area of assisted reproduction. Among the various reasons of implantation failure, intrauterine lesions play an important role. Objective: The aim of the present study is to evaluate the role of hysteroscopy prior to any assisted reproductive technique. Materials and Methods: It is a retrospective study of 292 women who attended our infertility clinic over a period of 18 months, who had a variable number of failed IVF cycles previously. Results: Out of the 292 women studied, in 74 women, that is 25%, intrauterine pathology was detected, which when rectified by hysteroscopy, gave a considerable increase in pregnancy rate. Conclusion: According to this study it can be concluded that evaluating the uterine cavity is an important step before any assisted reproductive procedures.
