Instituto Bernabeu discovers during research work that random-start ovarian stimulation does not affect oocyte potential

  • 09/05/18

During assisted reproduction treatment, conventional ovarian stimulation is performed over the first few days of the menstrual cycle. However, recent research shows that it can begin on any day of the menstrual cycle. The advantage is a decrease in the total time before treatment can begin. During the research, the oocyte retrieval results using the two strategies were similar.

  • 08/29/18

Instituto Bernabeu has carried out research work with the aim of understanding if it is possible to predict the success of a cycle of egg donation by analysing two parameters: the number of mature donated oocytes obtained following ovarian stimulation and the quantity that are eventually fertilised.

A research by Instituto Bernabeu investigates the regions that affect the vaginal and endometrial microbiome

  • 08/16/18

With the incorporation of genetic techniques, it has been possible to identify a greater number of microorganisms that cannot be analysed with a normal microbiological culture and that make up the vaginal microbiome. A powerful tool to identify the microbiome are the massive sequencing techniques. The analysis of the microbiome is important since, among other things, in the field of reproductive medicine it is possible to detect if there is a microorganism that can facilitate or hinder the implantation of the embryo.
