Poor Ovarian Response Unit

The number and quality of oocytes decreases with age, which is why there are more difficulties for natural conception, and sometimes conventional assisted reproduction techniques fail. The Low Ovarian Reserve unit at Instituto Bernabeu designs innovative diagnostic and treatment techniques shared in this section.

Ovarian Reserve: How many eggs do I have left to become a mother?

Ovarian Reserve: How many eggs do I have left to become a mother?

Reproduction in mammals, and therefore in humans, requires oocytes and sperm, each contributing with the parent’s genetic load. Sperm are made in the testes, but not before puberty. This means that, if we analysed the […]

i-Port: bidding farewell to injections during ovarian stimulation

i-Port: bidding farewell to injections during ovarian stimulation

At Instituto Bernabeu, we are bidding farewell to ovarian stimulation injections during courses of in vitro fertilisation (IVF) treatment. The clinic is launching an innovative device called i-Port Advance™ for self-administration of drugs using a system that is already used […]

Ovarian rejuvenation through fragmentation and transplantation of ovarian cortex

Ovarian rejuvenation through fragmentation and transplantation of ovarian cortex

Ovarian reserve is determined at birth and continually decreases both in quantity and in quality until it completely runs out during the menopause in women aged around 45 to 50. However, around 1% of women, […]

Use of platelet rich plasma (PRP) in low ovarian reserve

Use of platelet rich plasma (PRP) in low ovarian reserve

Low ovarian reserve means a lower probability of spontaneous conceiving, as well as a decrease in the number of eggs obtained in ovarian stimulation treatments. At Instituto Bernabeu, the low ovarian reserve unit works to […]

From ovarian rejuvenation to follicle activation, strategies for patients with low ovarian reserve

From ovarian rejuvenation to follicle activation, strategies for patients with low ovarian reserve

As a result of a number of different factors – essentially social and economic ones – including medical progress (availability and widespread use of contraception), there is a growing demographic trend in the Western world […]

Primary ovarian failure and its diagnosis using mass sequencing techniques

Primary ovarian failure and its diagnosis using mass sequencing techniques

Primary ovarian failure (POF) or early menopause is the loss of ovarian function before the age of 40. As a result of this cessation of ovary function, the woman stops having menstruation and her hormonal […]

Doubts, questions and answers about egg vitrification

Doubts, questions and answers about egg vitrification

What is the egg vitrification about? Vitrification technique is a relatively new freezing technique based on avoiding the ice crystals formation inside the cells when temperatures below 0 are reached (freezing), therefore, protecting them from […]

Importance of clinical trials for the discovery of new drugs and therapies in Reproductive Medicine

Importance of clinical trials for the discovery of new drugs and therapies in Reproductive Medicine

For a new drug to be marketed and used in humans, research must be preceded by laboratory studies and animal experimentation. If under these conditions the study drug meets the established requirements, it can begin […]

Can the DHEA hormone really help increase ovarian response during fertility treatment?

Can the DHEA hormone really help increase ovarian response during fertility treatment?

Women with reduced ovarian reserves (low antral follicle count and/ or low Anti Mullerian hormone levels) have a higher risk of poor response to hormone stimulation and low pregnancy rates during IVF treatment. What is […]
