New examination aimed at testing couples with recurrent implantation failure

Instituto Bernabeu focusses on providing personalised solutions, particularly in cases of patients with a difficult reproductive prognosis (low ovarian reserve and recurrent implantation failure (RIF)).
Carrying out a number of empirical tests and treatments has, on occasions, been put forward as an option in the case of patients suffering from recurrent implantation failure. The latter have proven to be of questionable efficacy and the former have proven to be of limited or no use.
One of the proposed strategies for patients with recurrent implantation failure (RIF) that is providing many of these cases with solutions, is IVF (in vitro fertilisation) with elective freezing and biopsies on all embryos so that the frozen embryos can later be transferred during a natural cycle. In other words, without any hormone treatment.
It is possible to recreate the conditions under which transfer takes place during treatment of this kind by carrying out a mock cycle and evaluating a series of parameters that can influence transfer success. […]

Could it be implantation failure why I don’t get pregnant? Diagnosis in one day.

Achieving pregnancy when pregnancy does not come is one of the challenges the medical team at Instituto Bernabeu faces every day. One of the most important challenges of female infertility is implantation failure. The embryo does not get to nest in the maternal uterus or it does but the woman undergoes an early miscarriage, which produces a great frustration. The couple should put themselves as soon as possible in the hands of the specialist and not leave to chance or wait the passage of time to solve a situation that requires a personalized study.
Instituto Bernabeu Medical Director, Dr Rafael Bernabeu explains: “The causes of implantation failure are multiple, but contrary to the general opinion, patients believe they are causing the problem when, in fact, to a great extent the problem is embryonic”. Therefore, the medical centre global benchmark in reproductive medicine develops a study of the three patients: “The mother, the father and the embryo.” Twenty-five percent of embryo implantation failures cases, “do not have a clear cause” and in many cases, there is a combination of factors that can be combined, warns Dr Rafael Bernabeu. Not only are environmental and immunological factors, they are also due to the intake of certain foods and even to the cosmetics used. “We are exposed to tens of thousands of chemical substances and many generate disorders and among them may be the cause of repeated miscarriage and implantation failure,” says Dr Bernabeu.

A negative beta hCG test. Now what?

What happens following the wait (‘the beta hCG wait’) which generates so much anxiety whilst, at the same time, creating the hope that our lives may be changed forever when, in the end, the result is negative?
Many patients say that the absence of symptoms meant that they knew what was coming; others were also expecting the worst because they had begun to bleed prior to getting the result of the analysis.
It’s important to point out that the presence or absence of ‘symptoms’ which women associate with pregnancy are not a means of diagnosis. It’s also important to clarify that vaginal bleeding of varying intensity is not infrequent prior to the programmed pregnancy test date and this does not necessarily mean that the result will be negative. Indeed, the results obtained from an analysis of the pregnancy hormone in blood is the only reliable proof available. A urine analysis is also an option but needs to be carried out a little later on and is not one hundred percent reliable. […]

Obesity and embryo implantation failure

It has long been known that patients who are overweight face increased reproduction and pregnancy loss issues.
Issues achieving a successful pregnancy are even greater if, as well as being obese, the patient also has illnesses such as diabetes, thyroid issues or other metabolic disorders (refer to further information on endocrinology and pregnancy).
However, little was known about the direct effect of obesity on endometrial receptivity and successful or unsuccessful embryo implantation. […]
