Why can’t I get pregnant again?

It is a known fact that there are people who have fertility problems and that, in 2 out of 3 cases, it is possible to find out the causes and provide a solution. But what about when you decide to go for a second child but you can’t get pregnant? Nobody expects this to happen. Firstly, because you had already ruled out any fertility problems and, secondly, because the situation is quite disconcerting: it is hard to believe, and especially to accept, that if you are already a mother, you cannot get pregnant again naturally or must resort to...

What if i don’t respond well to ovarian stimulation?

Ovarian stimulation treatments aim to ensure that multiple follicles develop instead of just one or two, which is what usually occurs in a natural menstrual cycle. In IVF treatments, stimulation is used to provide enough oocytes to obtain at least one embryo suitable for transfer. However, not all women respond well to ovarian stimulation: it is estimated that up to 25% of women have a poor response. Unfortunately, this is something that cannot always be anticipated. Each case is different, and the cause of poor ovarian response may also be different, so an individualised assessment is always necessary. In...

The mosaic embryo dilemma

If you have never heard of mosaic embryos, this term may come as a bit of a surprise. They are so-called because these embryos contain both normal cells and cells with chromosomal abnormalities.

The presence of chromosomal abnormalities in an embryo usually prevents implantation or causes a miscarriage because the embryo cannot continue to develop. More rarely, it can also give rise to certain conditions with different consequences: intellectual disability, neurodevelopmental delay, heart disease, functional problems, morphological alterations, etc. Therefore, when these are...

How does smoking affect fertility?

We play it down because it is a subject on which there is not much information and because despite being a bad habit, smoking is socially accepted. Therefore, hardly anyone thinks about it, not even before trying to conceive. However, in the case of sperm, many studies have confirmed that exposure to tobacco is harmful. In the case of women, as already mentioned, the relationship is not so obvious, but smoking has been shown to reduce fertilisation rates and increase the risk of ectopic pregnancy (implantation of the embryo outside the uterus), which poses a risk to the mother’s...

Ovarian ageing: 5 interesting facts

We all worry about our first wrinkles and our first grey hairs, but we rarely ask ourselves how the passage of time affects our heart or other organs in our body, let alone our ovaries. Yet, ovaries are among the fastest ageing organs. Deterioration begins at the age of 30, and from the age of 35 onwards, this process accelerates progressively. Therefore, from a biological point of view, doctors consider that from the age of 35 a woman is already “old” to become a mother. The problem is that nowadays, at least in Western countries and especially in Spain,...
