Nowadays, we all know that maternity is being postponed, currently standing at 31 years of age, according to the National Statistics Institute.
This basically means that the average woman has her first child at the age of 31. […]
Since 1988, egg donation has been legally regulated in Spain. It is a well-controlled and anonymous process that can be carried out thanks to the solidarity of many people. We should bear in mind that Spain is the leading country in terms of organ donation, including egg donation and blood donation, which is quite common in our country. […]
The aim of in vitro fertilisation (IVF) treatment is to obtain embryos that are able to implant in the uterus and lead to the birth of a healthy child. Unfortunately, this is not always the case and some couples go through the process unsuccessfully time and time again and these cases are catalogued as implantation […]
Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) is a new technique used in Reproductive Medicine and is one of the main sources of innovation and research. PGD allows embryos to be selected from assisted reproduction cycles and tested for certain genetic or chromosomal abnormalitybefore being transferred to the womb.
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.

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. […]
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. […]
