There has been a lot of discussion about therapies aimed at improving pregnancy rates; especially in patients that have gone through several cycles of treatment without positive results.

This is one of the most frustrating situations that doctors and patients can possibly have.

The inevitable question is:

What can we do to improve our chances? Isn’t there anything new?

We think that patients who have received 4 or more high quality embryos without any pregnancy should be thoroughly evaluated through an implantation failure study that should include the three fundamental elements for success: the female, male and embryo factors.

Is ovary size important?

As is the case with all the organs in our bodies, over our lifetime, ovaries go through changes that affect not only their size but also how they perform. The ovaries are situated between the uterus and the fallopian tubes. They are essential to reproduction and, therefore, to the survival of the human race.

The ovaries begin to develop when female embryos are around 8 weeks old and during pregnancy they undergo a number of changes that prepare them for their role in reproduction when a woman is in her childbearing years.
