The work of in vitro fertilisation laboratories in cases of implantation failure: the embryo

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 […]

Blastocyst, advantages of a transfer on day 4 or 5

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. […]

Intentionally delaying motherhood: oocyte vitrification

Although egg cryopreservation was introduced more than 20 years ago, the results so far have been dispiriting, but in recent times there have been remarkable advances and improvements in the field of cryobiology which have made its acceptance as a routine technique possible.

Embryo vitrification: when and how?

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 in the IVF lab

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).
