Implantation failure and repeated miscarriage. Treatment options

Successfully treating implantation failure and recurrent pregnancy loss is undoubtedly a challenge for doctors and for patients.

It is an area on which we continuously focus research at Instituto Bernabeu and, whilst we are far from finding a solution to all problems, the number of couples we are able to successfully treat is forever increasing.

An approach which does not take all 3 parties into account – the female, the male and the embryo – is incomplete. When evaluation only takes the couple into account, the reason behind the issue is only determined in under 20% of all cases. […]

Immune Rejection as a Cause of Miscarriage or Implantation Failure

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.
