"Infertility is defined as 1 year of unprotected intercourse without conception. It affects approximately 14% of couples and is a medical concern for 2.7 million women of reproductive age in the United States. Infertility causes great distress to many couples, causing increasing numbers of them to seek specialist fertility care. This condition may be further classified as primary infertility, in which no previous pregnancies have occurred and secondary infertility, in which a prior pregnancy, although not necessarily a live birth, has occurred. There are many causes of infertility including male and female factors. Pathologies within uterine cavity are the cause of infertility in as many as 15% of couples seeking treatment and are diagnosed in greater than 50% of infertile patients. Uterine cavity abnormalities include endometrial polyps, endometrial hyperplasia, submucous myomas, intrauterine synechiae and congenital uterine anomalies.
