Novel approach to recurrent implantation failure: short-term copper intrauterine device placement

      Repeated implantation failure (RIF) remains one of the most enigmatic areas of assisted reproductive technology and while there have been many efforts to investigate etiology and treatment, we presently have no definitive solution. Given that RIF is associated with high emotional and physical tolls that lead to drop out of care, novel treatments are urgently needed.
