A study was conducted on the characteristics of embryo transfer (ET) in the uterine cavity. The procedure of ET was modeled by a catheter inserted within a two-dimensional channel which represented the intrauterine cavity in the sagittal cross-section. It was found that the insertion of the catheter into the uterine cavity changed the normal intrauterine fluid flow. It was also found that fast withdrawal of the catheter pulled the embryos towards the cervix.
