One of the options for patients undergoing In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) techniques with remaining embryos, meaning high quality embryos that can be cryopreserved for the future, is to donate these embryos to other couples for reproductive purposes. In most cases, these embryos come from couples that have gone through double donation treatments (egg and sperm), and after achieving their goal of becoming parents, decide to donate their embryos so that other couples can achieve their own.

For 21 years, egg donation has been a treatment that Instituto Bernabeu offers to women who need it, which has made it a European reference point for egg donation.
It is the reproductive technique with the highest pregnancy rates, over 60% per cycle. At IB, the overall pregnancy rate after three cycles of treatment is over 90%. […]
A good embryo freezing programme is essential when trying to increase the chances of pregnancy in couples who undergo assisted reproduction techniques. Over the last few years, we have observed a significant increase in thawing cycles with posterior embryo transfer known as cryotransfers (CTs). The data we have at Instituto Bernabeu confirms this trend since the number of CTs performed per […]
Given the essential role of the endometrial receptivity in the success of any Assisted Reproduction treatment (In Vitro Fertilisation, frozen embryo transfers (CT) or egg donation cycles), the uterus’ capacity to “accept” the embryo must be carefully measured.
Embryo transfer is the culmination of various assisted reproduction treatments: in-vitro fertilisation, egg donation, embryo adoption, use of cryopreserved embryos, and so on.
The embryo is transferred from the laboratory to its ultimate place of development, the mother’s uterus. […]
This post has been modified according to the latest updated use of Heparin in Assisted Reproduction treatments. Please check out the following link to see the latest publication on “Heparin as a Treatment for Repeat Miscarriages or Implantation Failure”:
Since the discovery of Heparin, an effective anti-coagulant agent, it has been used in many fields of medicine. It has recently been used in fertility treatments (IVF, egg donation, etc.) in two ways: firstly as a preventive treatment for thromboembolic phenomena and secondly as an adjunctive therapy in cases of implantation failure or repeat miscarriage.

What is a Beta?
The determination of the levels of the hormone beta-hCG in blood. The hormone produces the embryo and passes to the mother via the placenta. This is the first measurable sign of embryo implantation. […]
A surprising number of patients require the support of assisted reproduction techniques in order to become parents with egg donation treatments playing a major role. These patients choose the professionalism of Instituto Bernabeu to achieve this goal. […]
