The timing of when an embryo is most likely to attach to the lining of the uterus (endometrium) can be unique to each individual woman. ERA test is a genetic analysis that can help find the most optimal time when the endometrium in the uterus is most receptive to an embryo and thus improve the odds of the embryo being able to attach.
When is it appropriate to do ERA testing??
ERA test is suitable when there have been several unsuccessful IVF treatments despite good quality embryos, repeated miscarriages or in case of egg donation.
How does the ERA test work?
The test is taken via a thin catheter that is inserted into the uterus. Before the ERA test, a stimulation is done, just like before the introduction of a frozen embryo. At the time when the embryo should have been inserted, the sample is taken instead. Samples from the endometrium are taken and sent to the laboratory for analysis. In ERA testing, many genes are analyzed to determine the optimal time for embryo transfer.
