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)”.

Fertility checklist

Most women take their fertility for granted from the moment they get their first period. But having your period is not a guarantee of fertility. To find out if everything is “working properly”, women need to undergo specific tests. You may never have thought about doing it, but it is definitely worth it, because if there is any problem, you will have more time to act, get information, make decisions and treat it.
