The option of avoiding serious illnesses in our children: a study on recessive disease carriers

Recessive diseases are hereditary diseases. They are not common but they are often serious and incurable. They have the peculiarity that a person may be a carrier but does have any health issues. It is for this reason that they are called ‘healthy carriers.’
This circumstance makes diagnosis particularly difficult since we can come across families in which there are entire generations without the disease or in which the disease has not previously come to light. As such, until recently, it was impossible or very difficult to know if a person was a carrier or not.
Most of us are healthy carries of some form of recessive disease and, on the whole, this is not an issue as long as our partner is not a carrier of the same disease, in which case there are implications for our children. […]

Adenomyosis and recurrent implantation failure

Adenomyosis occurs when the tissue that lines the inner part of the uterus (the endometrium) is found in the outermost part of the uterus (myometrium), which is a muscle layer. It is sometimes referred to as endometriosis of the uterus, given that endometrial tissue is found where it should not be, just like it happens in endometriosis. […]

Fertility research: one of a kind treatment for one of a kind patients

Research in the field of assisted reproduction provides us with more and more answers to situations which previously had none. It gives us solutions, options and new ways of overcoming the many difficulties which arise in reproduction.  What’s more, progress in science also helps diagnosis and treatment to be increasingly specific, personalised and individual. In fact, we might even say that the aim is to reach a point where one of a kind treatments are designed for one of a kind patients. […]

A more reliable technique for detecting anti-Mullerian hormone and estimate ovarian reserve

We have built a new much more reliable, rapid technique (in 3 days the result is obtained) and as we do it directly in our laboratories the price is reduced to 50€. Only requires a blood test that can be performed in our clinics or send the sample by courier.
The determination of AMH levels in the woman’s blood helps us to assess the ovarian reserve and, together with the completion of an ultrasound to count antral follicles, provides information about their reproductive future and if there is or not a need to rush in getting pregnant.
It is also useful for individualizing the treatment for your fertility problem and helps predict the success of it.

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 […]

Egg donation at Instituto Bernabeu

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. […]

Importance of endometrial thickness in Assisted Reproduction treatments

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.

Anti-Müllerian Hormone (AMH): Know the Age of your Ovaries

Ovarian reserve is a widely used concept in assisted reproduction but patients do not always know the meaning of the results and their clinical implications. A woman’s ovarian reserve refers to the total number of eggs in their ovaries and provides information regarding their reproductive future and their replication potential. […]
