Infertility Tests for Women

ERA

ERA, or Endometrial Receptivity Analysis, is a test to determine the receptivity of the endometrium.

ERA may increase the chance of pregnancy by predicting the ideal time for the implantation of the embryo during an IVF cycle.

A biopsy of endometrial tissue is taken and analyzed. Results will indicate whether the endometrium was receptive or non-receptive at the time the biopsy was taken.



RECEPTIVE

A receptive result indicates the endometrium is likely to be receptive and the embryo is likely capable of implanting into the uterus relative to the day the biopsy was taken.

NON-RECEPTIVE

A non-receptive result indicates that the endometrium is either pre- or post-receptive relative to the day that the biopsy was taken. The embryo transfer would not be recommended.

A non-receptive result means the endometrium is either pre-receptive or post-receptive.

In this case, a new window of implantation will be suggested and a second biopsy and test are recommended to confirm the new personalized window of implantation.

ERA links to a major improvement of the global pregnancy rate, up to 85%* in those personalized transfers made according to the test results.
