Why does the endometrium matter?
The endometrium is a tissue lining the interior of the uterus where the embryo implants and resides during pregnancy. Each month, the endometrium prepares for the arrival of an embryo. When this does not occur, menstruation begins.
Variations of the endometrium are one of the leading causes of infertility in women. The endometrium must be both receptive to embryo implantation at the time of transfer and rich in healthy bacteria. Infections with harmful bacteria can cause diseases of the endometrium, such as chronic endometritis, which are associated with poor reproductive outcomes.
Recent studies led by Igenomix indicate that the endometrium is a key factor for reproductive success. 20% of infertility is caused by the endometrial factor.
- EndomeTRIO provides a complete view of your endometrial health.
- ERA will enable you to perform a personalised embryo transfer, increasing the likelihood of successful implantation and a successful pregnancy
- EMMA will determine whether the uterine microbial environment is optimal for embryo implantation.
- If ALICE detects pathogenic bacteria, appropriate antibiotics and probiotic treatments will be recommended to treat chronic endometritis
