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.
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 […]
Azoospermia is defined as the absence of sperm in the ejaculate, which is generally classified as either obstructive or secretory. In obstructive azoospermia, the sperm cells cannot complete their journey from the testicle to the urethra through the seminal tract; however, the sperm cells are produced in the testicle (spermatogenesis).
