What causes poor embryo quality?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 08/09/2018

There are several factors, both intrinsic and extrinsic, that can influence embryo quality:

  • Advanced maternal age
  • Endometriosis
  • Severe male factor
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome
  • Obesity
  • Stimulation protocols
  • Cultivation conditions

That being said, it is difficult to know the specific cause that could affect a particular case in women with good prognosis and good reproductive health.
