Recurrent pregnancy loss: an issue that does have a solution

Clearly one of the most difficult situations a couple trying for children may have to face is pregnancy loss. Suffering is even greater when, prior to this, the couple has gone through fertility treatment such as in vitro fertilisation, insemination or egg donation.
Pregnancy loss is not always the result of an illness or underlying abnormality. It can be the response nature provides in order to block the development of an abnormal embryo. In fact, when the tissue from the pregnancy loss is examined, a large number of chromosomal abnormalities can be detected. […]

Instituto Bernabeu begins research on a new treatment for patients with poor ovarian response

From January 2016, Instituto Bernabeu will work on a clinical trial (free to participating patients) with the aim of evaluating the efficiency of a line of treatment in patients with poor response to ovarian stimulation.
The research, which has already been approved by the Spanish Drug Agency and has been published in the USA National Health Institute register, involves comparing ovarian response to two different stimulation protocols. One is conventional with drug administration starting at the beginning of the cycle. The other, new procedure carries out stimulation once it has been confirmed that the patient is ovulating. […]

Fertility research: one of a kind treatment for one of a kind patients

Research in the field of assisted reproduction provides us with more and more answers to situations which previously had none. It gives us solutions, options and new ways of overcoming the many difficulties which arise in reproduction.  What’s more, progress in science also helps diagnosis and treatment to be increasingly specific, personalised and individual. In fact, we might even say that the aim is to reach a point where one of a kind treatments are designed for one of a kind patients. […]

Low ovarian reserve, a challenge with optimistic future in Instituto Bernabeu

The social changes in recent years have been highly beneficial to achieving rights and equalities, although it has also led to a significant increase in maternal age. But nature does not understand social change and the biological clock keeps ticking as usual. There are several consequences of this delay on female fertility and it depends on each woman, but it is a reality that as women age, the ovarian reserve diminishes and the egg quality lowers. […]
