New examination aimed at testing couples with recurrent implantation failure

Instituto Bernabeu focusses on providing personalised solutions, particularly in cases of patients with a difficult reproductive prognosis (low ovarian reserve and recurrent implantation failure (RIF)).

Carrying out a number of empirical tests and treatments has, on occasions, been put forward as an option in the case of patients suffering from recurrent implantation failure. The latter have […]

Ovarian stimulation during the luteal phase

Over the last few years, progress in terms of freezing both embryos and oocytes has meant that embryo transfer can successfully be carried out during a cycle that does not need to be the ovarian stimulation cycle itself.

Such progress has led to new forms of ovarian stimulation that concentrate exclusively on retrieving an adequate number […]

Is implantation failure the reason why I am unable to get pregnant? A diagnosis for dissipating doubts.

Trying to achieve a pregnancy when pregnancy simply does not happen is one of the challenges faced by the medical team at Instituto Bernabeu each and every day. Implantation failure is one of the greatest challenges of infertility. The embryo does not implant in the mother’s uterus or, alternatively, is does implant but then pregnancy […]

Can the DHEA hormone really help increase ovarian response during fertility treatment?

Women with reduced ovarian reserves (low antral follicle count and/ or low Anti Mullerian hormone levels) have a higher risk of poor response to hormone stimulation and low pregnancy rates during IVF treatment.

According to some research, the steroid hormone DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone) could increase conception rates during IVF treatment by increasing ovarian response to stimulation. Although […]

Womens health in the world: situation and challenges

Chance is a deciding factor in our lives. Where we are born, our society and available resources determine our access to the coverage of basic needs such as health care and education. Specifically, limited access to health services or gynecological health affects millions of women and girls all over the world differently depending on where they live. […]

The advantages of comprehensive chromosome screening (CCS) in women of an advanced maternal age

Women currently seek guidance on reproduction at a much older age than they did some years ago. As a result, amongst the women who undergo fertility treatment, there is a significant group of women of an advanced age who will have a poorer prognosis. This is a huge challenge for specialists in reproduction.

Age has a […]

Genetic Health of the Embryo: Science Applied to Life

This is not science fiction, it’s reality. It is reproductive medicine and advanced genetics together to achieve healthy children who are free of diseases. Before, medicine focused on a person’s health. Now thanks to genetics and scientific research we are able to go one step further and take care of the embryo. […]

Assited Reproduction Techniques: FIV vs ICSI

Currently there are two main techniques used to achieve Assisted Reproduction IVF. These two techniques are conventional in vitro fertilization (IVF), and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). […]

The contribution of array CGH towards treating patients with recurrent implantation failure (RIF)

Couples who do not get pregnant following in vitro fertilisation treatment and couples who experience pregnancy loss during the early stages of pregnancy, require interdisciplinary guidance in order to diagnose and treat their particular reproductive issue.

From a genetic point of view, patients of this kind are more likely to generate embryos with chromosome abnormalities. Pre-implantation […]

Endometrial polyps, what are they and how are they formed?

Endometrial polyps are protrusions or growths in the endometrium, the lining of the uterus. Contain abundant inside your blood vessels and endometrial glands that respond to hormonal stimuli.
Polyps proliferate to form a region of the basal layer of the endometrium, and are less responsiveness to hormonal changes. Taking place repetition of menses, the endometrium functional layer surrounding the polyp breaks off and becomes increasingly individual from a pedicle. […]
