Recurrent pregnancy loss: what steps should be taken?

Pregnancy loss is quite common. It is estimated that about 10% to 20% of pregnancies end in miscarriage, although the actual figure may be higher as miscarriages often occur even before the pregnancy is known.  In most cases, the cause of pregnancy loss is embryonic: the embryo does not develop properly or is non-viable, leading to the woman’s body ending the pregnancy naturally. Doctors often consider this to be a one-off event and do not give it much importance. But what if it happens more than once? Are there other possible causes? What protocol is usually followed in these...

How does polycystic ovary syndrome affect fertility?

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is not a fertility problem per se, but it can lead to irregular cycles or a lack of ovulation. It is caused by an imbalance in the hormones responsible for regulating the menstrual cycle, resulting in impaired ovulation, which can make it more difficult to become pregnant.  In addition, it is a multifactorial disorder that can lead to the development of diabetes and obesity, two health issues that also have a negative impact on fertility and can have repercussions on a woman’s potential pregnancy and overall health.

Implantation failure: what it is and what it is not

After the transfer of an embryo, it may manage to implant in the uterus and lead to a successful pregnancy… or it may not. The causes of this failure can be many and one of the most important is embryo quality. However, the fact that an embryo fails to implant does not necessarily mean that it is a case of what experts technically call “recurrent implantation failure (RIF)”. This is something that many people who undergo IVF treatments find difficult to understand, and it is a controversial subject. According to the SEF (Spanish Fertility Society), there is no uniform...
