ERA is a cutting-edge test to determine the endometrial status and which time/period would be best for the transfer of the embryo for implantation. This test is beneficial for patients who have experienced implantation failures.
Benefits of ERA
For conventional intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), spermatozoa are selected at a high magnification. However, the IMSI procedure allows a far better assessment, since spermatozoa are selected at a far higher magnification. IMSI may improve the chances of in vitro fertilization. IMSI is a real-time method where sperm are selected before the microinjection takes place. This is done using an inverted microscope that provides a much greater magnifying power (around 6000 times) than those that are normally used in reproductive laboratories (400 times) to carry out the ICSI.
Time lapse technology provides hundreds of images that allow pinpointing of key events in the embryo’s in vitro development, as well as the detection of brief but significant changes. This information is beneficial in selecting the healthiest embryos, which improves the chances of a positive outcome.
Assisted Hatching is a scientific technique used in in vitro fertilisation (IVF) that may improve the implantation of embryos into a woman’s uterine lining by creating an opening through which the embryonic cells can hatch out. Pregnancy cannot occur unless the embryo hatches.
Just before embryo implantation, the developing embryo must “hatch” out of its outer shell (zona pellucida). Some embryos seem to have a thicker shell that may diminish their ability to hatch and reduce the likelihood that they will implant. This may be due to the age of the woman or other unknown reasons.
In PGD, single cells from embryos are screened for any genetic disease and chromosome disorders. This test takes place during the IVF treatment and is done prior to embryo transfer. The objective of PGD is to identify abnormal embryos and discard them before they’re put in the womb.
PGS can be used for patients who have experienced several pregnancy losses or infertility. In PGS, embryos are screened for aneuploidy (missing or additional numbers of chromosomes), which is the principal cause of miscarriage and implantation failure.
