What is a Chemical Pregnancy?

 There are times when we give patients the results of  in vitro fertilization, we tell them that the test is positive, but that it is not good news, and that the chances that it involves into an ongoing pregnancy are slim. It is a very difficult situation, emotionally, since it is very hard for patients to understand what has happened. If it really is positive. Then why isn’t that good news? If it’s not good news, then why do I still have to take medication?

Anembryonic gestation

The anembryonic pregnancy or “blighted ovum” is a specific type of miscarriage in which the fertilized egg implants in the uterus but the embryo does not develop.

It is a relatively common problem: 10-15% of clinically detected pregnancies are lost spontaneously and one third of them are blighted ovum.

What causes anembryonic pregnancy

After fertilization, that is, after the union of sperm and egg, begin a series of cell divisions that lead to the formation of the gestational sac  surrounded by a “shell” or cover called trophoblast (which is the one that will lead to future placenta). Inside the gestational sac the embryo will develop. In the case of anembryonic pregnancy the gestational sac is formed with the trophoblastic cover. But the embryo is not displayed because it has stopped developing at a very early stage, before reaching a millimeter in size, so it cannot be detected with an ultrasound.

Embryonic arrest, why don’t all of my embryos develop equally?

When one starts an in vitro fertilisation (IVF) treatment, one of the most frequent concerns is the number of
high quality embryos that can be obtained.

This number is variable and depends on several factors
such as the ovarian reserve and gamete quality (egg and
sperm). Once the eggs are fertilised, they are considered embryos, which begins
after their early division. The embryo division is observed in […]

Why aren’t all embryos obtained from an IVF cycle suitable for freezing?

Today, in In Vitro Fertilization treatments, it is not extraordinary to find ourselves on the day of embryo transfer with a high number of good quality embryos. For a fresh transfer we shall be electing the embryo or embryos that morphologically and kinetically demonstrate greater development and ‘the other’ good quality ones can be cryopreserved.

What is the endometrium?

The uterus, the organ where pregnancy takes place, has a cavity inside where implantation occurs.  This cavity is covered by a soft tissue called endometrium, the “nest” that the uterus prepares every month for a possible embryo.

During the menstrual cycle the endometrium goes through 3 main phases:

How many eggs on average are donated on an Egg Donation treatment at Instituto Bernabeu?

In Spain, we performed 40% of all egg donation cycles in Europe. The experience accumulated at Instituto Bernabeu in the last decades, allows us to offer to our patients a high quality and personalized treatment.

When a patient decides to go for an Egg Donation treatment, a chain work is set in the organization, in which we guarantee a commitment of trust, reliability and professional quality.  Matching the donor to each recipient patient allows a better quality and larger number of oocytes to be donated. We guarantee a minimum of 8 donated oocytes and a statistical average of 11.

Why an “x” number of eggs are donated? Why not only one?
