Flu vaccinations during fertility treatment

Vaccinations are essential for good health at all times, but they are particularly important during conception and pregnancy, both from the point of view of protecting the mother and from the point of view of protecting the foetus and newborn child since immunity can be achieved through the placenta.

Women are at a heightened risk of infections […]

Why does embryonic arrest sometimes happen during in vitro development?

Many factors can intervene in arrest processes during embryo development which mean cell division is detained and, therefore, it is not possible to implant the embryo in the mother’s uterus and bring about a pregnancy.

In the first instance, the conditions for development are essential.  Embryos that develop in vitro are subjected to a number of artificial […]

Molar pregnancy or hydatidiform mole

Molar
pregnancy, also known as hydatidiform mole, is a very rare pregnancy
complication where the tissue which is going to form the future placenta grows
in an exaggerated way; Trophoblastic tissue.

It happens
in 1 out of 1500 pregnancies and most of them (around 80%) are spontaneously
resolved so there’s no need to induce miscarriage.

Types of molar pregnancies

There are
two types of […]

What are an embryo’s nutritional requirements prior to transfer to the mother?

During in vitro fertilisation processes, for the first few days of their lives, human embryos have to develop outside the mother’s body in special incubators.  Temperature and pH conditions need to be optimum and embryos also need to have access to all the necessary ingredients in order to feed and, in doing so, meet their […]

Breast cancer and fertility

Breast cancer is the most common malignant tumour found in women and it is the main cause of death in women due to cancer in the world.

Over the last few years, there has been an increase in this pathology in younger women and, at the same time, treatment has taken breast cancer survival rates to almost 85%. These […]

Instituto Bernabeu´s specialised unit for the treatment of Klinefelter´s Syndrome and fertility.

Klinefelter’s Syndrome is considered the most common chromosomal abnormality  in humans, with an incidence of 1 out of every 500 newborn males. Those affected by this syndrome have an extra X chromosome, which leads to primary testicular failure and therefore infertility and hypoandrogenism.

It is a chromosomal abnormality that only affects men and mainly causes hypogonadism. […]

The advantages and disadvantages of transferring embryos during a natural or artificial cycle

Embryo transfer to the uterus is the pinnacle of all courses of assisted reproduction treatment. It cannot be left to chance. The endometrium needs to be receptive and facilitate embryo embedding.

The endometrium can be prepared with the aid of drugs (oestrogens) to simulate natural uterine behaviour – a substituted or artificial cycle – or transfer can be carried out […]

Marfan Syndrome and PGD (embryo genetic diagnosis)

We now can avoid the transmission to offspring with the PGD techniques (embryo’s Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis) also called PGT-M

Symptoms and causes of Marfan syndrome

The connective tissue serves to hold together body tissues and cells. As a result, the result of Marfan syndrome is abnormalities in blood vessels, eyes, lungs, bones and the heart. The […]

The advantages and disadvantages of pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD)

Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) consists of studying chromosomal abnormalities and genetic abnormalities in the embryo prior to transfer to the mother. Its purpose is to ensure that children are healthy and put an end to the transmission of a specific condition.

There are two types of PGD: the PGD aimed at selecting embryos that are free of a genetic disorder affecting a […]
