The endometrium has to be prepared prior to the implementation of an assisted reproduction treatment. Therapeutical drugs are used to increase the thickness of the endometrium so as to facilitate embryo implantation.
Dr Manuel Muñoz, from Alicante’s IVI clinic, tells us about problems, treatments, or investigations into embryo implantation.
Implantation takes place in the middle third of the posterior face of the uterus and it happens during a specific period of time in which there is a dialogue between embryo and mother. This moment is called implantation window.
