Accurately identifying the prognosis of the endometrium is crucial to avoid endometrial failure and potential embryo loss  

The research presented by IVI demonstrates how a new method can distinguish endometria with a 95% accuracy rate between good and poor prognosis by combining transcriptomics with artificial intelligence algorithms. Additionally, it can show a three times higher relative risk in patients with a poor prognosis for experiencing endometrial failure. The preventive detection of these… View Article

Safety in assisted reproduction treatments

Increased safety, comfort, and flexibility in assisted reproduction treatments

A new Frozen Embryo Transfer protocol (FET) allows for more flexible transfer scheduling – nearly 7 days – without affecting the outcomes of reproductive processes COPENHAGEN, JUNE 28th, 2023 The current practice in assisted reproduction centers is changing, transitioning from replaced or artificial cycles to natural cycles for frozen embryo transfers. This shift has raised… View Article

heavy metals and fertility 
27 June 2023
Mercury and arsenic, among non-essential trace elements associated with increased infertility in women undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF)

A study presented by the IVI Foundation at the Congress of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) confirms that a higher concentration of these heavy metals could affect fertility: the results suggested a lower ovarian response and worse embryological and clinical outcomes. These levels were observed in follicular fluid, plasma, and urine… View Article

synthetic embryos

Embryos created without eggs, sperm or a uterus open the door to a revolution in tissue and organ transplants

At the 10th International IVIRMA Congress, the Weizmann Institute of Science presented its technique for generating synthetic mouse embryo models from stem cells grown only in a Petri dish, i.e., without fertilized eggs and without the need for a uterus. The researchers achieved mouse embryos with progenitor cells with a beating heart, a brain with… View Article

The embryo’s return to life: new focus of study of Artificial Intelligence with promising applications

In general, embryos that achieve an evolutionary pregnancy begin their re-expansion within 50 minutes after devitrification. The embryos’ behavior during these first moments as it returns to life helps us to identify embryos with up to 30% higher chances of achieving pregnancy. This work provides objective quantitative values for the variables involved in blastocyst re-expansion,… View Article

uterine fibroids
28 March 2023
Three IVI studies received awards at the SRI for their contributions to the field of reproductive medicine

Therapies for women with premature ovarian failure, the treatment of uterine fibroids with encouraging results, and the possibility of silencing extra chromosomes have won the favour of the SRI scientific committee, recognising the quality and innovation of these studies. Poor oocyte quality is currently one of the main problems limiting reproductive success. In this sense,… View Article

78% of young women delay motherhood due to the current socioeconomic context

I Social barometer of Spanish women’s perception of motherhood and fertility The survey, led by IVI, has been carried out among almost 1000 women between the ages of 25 and 45 of middle, middle-high and high socioeconomic level to discover their perception and attitude towards maternity, fertility and assisted reproduction, within the current social, political… View Article

Paternal age does not influence maternal and foetal health during pregnancy

Paternal age does not influence maternal and foetal health during pregnancy

Two studies presented by IVI at the ESHRE Congress confirm that male age does not appear to have an effect on healthy pregnancy and healthy newborns, as is the case for women of advanced maternal age. Pregnancy and perinatal health indicators such as gestational diabetes, hypertension, infant weight, type of delivery, head circumference or admission… View Article

Myths and realities of endometrial receptivity in Assisted Reproduction

Embryo and endometrium are two fundamental players in the gestation process. IVI doctors Juan Antonio García Velasco and Elkin Muñoz analyse their influence on recurrent implantation failure and biochemical pregnancy. VALENCIA, 5 JULY 2022 When implantation failure occurs, the first question to be asked is what caused it. Is it the endometrium or the embryo?… View Article
