Implantation failure and recurrent miscarriage

What is chronic endometritis? What is its effect in fertility?

Chronic endometritis is the name given to a continuous inflammation of the endometrium. It is a pathology that can be found in up to 10% of women, however it is known that this percentage is much higher in patients that have had recurrent embryo implantation failure and in patients who have had recurrent miscarriages (10-67%).

Emotional support for repeated miscarriages

According to the WHO, infertility is considered a chronic illness, since it causes emotional reactions that are the same as those seen in patients with other serious chronic pathologies.

Infertility is considered to be a stressful event that causes an “emotional imbalance” and affects a high percentage of patients.

The reactions and emotional states evolve and change […]

The miracle of embryo implantation

Embryo implantation is the process in which the human embryo adheres to the endometrium, where it continues developing. The first step of this process begins with the dialogue between the embryonic and maternal cells.

This is an extremely complex process that is currently only partially known and depends on the embryo quality, uterine receptivity and their […]

Immune Rejection as a Cause of Miscarriage or Implantation Failure

At some point in our lives, we have all tricked our mothers.

We are not referring to the white lies of our youth or our schoolyard antics. We are talking about the critical moment in our lives: when we were embryos.

Due to the fact that the embryo does not have the same proteins or make up as maternal tissue, it is a unique moment for the mother’s immune system.

Chromosomal alterations in repeated miscarriages

Couples who get pregnant, either naturally or through assisted reproductive techniques, are especially worried about the successful outcome of the pregnancy.

Unfortunately, some pregnancies end in miscarriage or fetal loss in the week 20 of pregnancy, when the fetus is not able to survive outside of the maternal uterus.

Discretionary use of intralipids in patients undergoing Assisted Reproduction Techniques

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.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome: What is it? How does it affect pregnancy?

Antibodies are proteins produced by the immune system of our organism to combat possible infections of viral or bacterial origin. In some diseases, the immune system produces antibodies that, erroneously, attack the tissues of our own body. The result of this attack is the appearance of what are known as autoimmune diseases.

Reproductive Immunology: What it is, causes, treatment and how it can affect the achievement of pregnancy

Pregnancy is a physiological state that conceptually challenges the foundations of immunology. While pregnant, the mother has to coexist with a being different from herself in at least half of its genetic origin. The, so-called, “tolerating the intruder” contradicts the principle of how the immune system functions: “tolerating one’s own and rejecting that of others”.

Types […]

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?

Embryo implantation bleeding

What is implantation bleeding?

Implantation is the process
through which an embryo starts its development in the maternal uterus and it
sometimes causes a bleeding. The implantation is caused by the growth of the
embryo -which is already in blastocyst stage
by the moment it arrives to the endometrium- enabling it to implant in the
walls of the uterus, and thus, […]
