Objective: The purpose of this study was to determine reproductive results of intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) for different endometrial polyps subgroup divided according to polyp size and number. Materials and Methods: Eighty-three primer infertile patients were retrospectively analyzed. Group A consisted of 36 patients having an endometrial polyp with a diameter ≤ one cm; whereas 47 patients were included in Group B who had a polyp with a diameter > one cm or more than one polyps. All patients underwent a hysteroscopic polypectomy and ICSI treatments were started in the following cycle. Results: Pregnancy was achieved in 16 patients (44.4%) in Group A and 23 patients (48.9%) in Group B. The pregnancy ratios did not reveal a statistically significant difference between the two groups. Conclusion: The authors concluded that in patients who have undergone hysteroscopic polypectomy before the intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) cycle, the pregnancy rates do not depend on the diameter of the endometrial polyps.
