El síndrome de Asherman es una condición que afecta el útero femenino . Consiste en la formación y persistencia de adherencias o fibrosis dentro de las paredes internas de la cavidad uterina. Naturalmente, esto puede afectar seriamente la función uterina de concebir y gestar a un bebé. […]
When we perform an assisted reproduction cycle, we try to optimise the results as much as possible. Currently, the most physiological way of achieving this is with an embryo culture that reaches the blastocyst stage. […]
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 patient with low response to the ovarian stimulation for IVF is probably the most significant challenge faced by professionals treating couples with fertility problems.
At Instituto Bernabeu, we have developed a specific programme with protocols designed to treat repeated miscarriages and unsuccessful assisted reproduction treatments through the multidisciplinary approach that allows us to diagnose and therefore overcome these problems.
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 […]
Artificial insemination is a simple technique carried out on couples with specific fertility problems.
The ideal candidate would be a young woman with permeable fallopian tubes, less than 3 years of sterility and a male partner with normal semen. Artificial insemination is useful for couples that meet these requirements. No more than 4 tries are carried out, and the overall pregnancy rates are 25% – 30 %.
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.
The two most commonly found malignant tumours in women are from cervical cancer and breast cancer. Early diagnosis of cervical cancer is possible due to first and secondary prevention techniques (vaccination and Pap smear). Breast cancer is still detected through radiological screening (mammograms).
