Embryo adoption is an affordable reproductive choice that allows many people achieve parenthood in spite of poor egg and/or sperm quality or no gamete production at all.
Using several techniques the quality of the eggs can be found out to know the reproductive potential of a woman, and if needed, which assisted reproduction technique to apply.
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.
Embryo thawing is a reliable technique which allow embryos to be retrieved in the same stage as they were vitrified, regardless of how much time has passed.
Embryoscope is an incubation system that allows taking images of the embryo at any moment. This way, the complete development of the embryo can be observed without any need to vary the conditions in which it’s immersed.
Currently, there is no clear evidence to recommend a specific protocol for endometrial preparation after embryo transfer, since many different factors which vary on each woman take part in the process.
Dr Manuel Muñoz, from Alicante’s IVI clinic, tells us about problems, treatments, or investigations into embryo implantation.
Some assisted reproductive techniques, such as in vitro fertilisation (IVF) or ICSI, perform egg fertilisation outside the woman’s body. For this reason, embryo culture is necessary up to the day in which the embryo transfer is performed.
Blastocyst is the stage in which embryo implantation within the uterus occurs naturally. To reach this stage, the embryo is cultured up to day 5-6 by means of a sequential culture system.
