Endometrial Receptivity Array Test or ERA is a pioneering new method used to assess when is the endometrium most receptive, in order to give a personalised embryo transfer.
The receptivity of the endometrium is a crucial factor in determining the success of IVF or any other infertility treatment. The endometrium is the tissue lining the uterus, which gets thicker during the cycle until it reaches the optimum thickness for implantation following ovulation. In IVF treatment, practitioners have to estimate the most suitable time to introduce the embryo into the womb based upon scans and conventional wisdom. It is simply to detect the perfect time to perform the infertility treatment. This advanced technology increases the chance of success.
