Endometrial Receptivity Assay ERA

ERA is a novel diagnostic method that Itlooks at the endometrial receptivity status of a woman, from a molecular point of view. This test is indicated in cases of recurrent implantation failure with good quality embryos.

A biopsy of endometrial tissue is performed seven days ovulation in natural cycles or 5-6 days after the start of Progesterone in a medicated mock cycle. This biopsy is carried out by a doctor and is a simple procedure.

The results will tell us if your endometrium (womb lining) is receptive to an embryo at the day the biopsy is performed.  If it is found to be post-receptive we can tailor future embryo transfers to take place earlier.  If your endometrium is pre-receptive we may advise that embryo transfers take place a day later than usual.
