Hello All. Long story short, after 6 failed transfers (details in my signature), my RE is recommending that we do an Endometrial Function Test through Yale University. We have already done an ERA, but sounds like this is different in that it tests the endometrium for various issues and markers which could be preventing implantation. Has anyone heard of this or done this test? Google searching is giving me some information, but not a ton. I am just curious as to if anyone found this test and the results useful, and if so, how did the results alter your treatment?
Thanks in advance!
- August 2013 - December 2013 3 rounds Clomid - February 2014 - DH diagnosed with bilateral absence of vasdeferens, so on to IVF with ICSI. - November 2014 - First IVF round/retrieval. From that we ended up with 12, day 3 embryos. Fresh transfer - chemical pregnancy - February 2015 - 1st FET - BFN - Dec 2015 - 2nd FET - BFN - Dec 2016 - 3rd FET - Added endo scratch, endometrial HCG, and resistant uterine protocol - BFN - Dec 2017 - Intra uterine scope and biopsy - Found nothing that could be causing us not to concieve - Jan 2018 - ERA- Found I was post receptive and we needed 12 less hours of progesterone before transfer - February 2018 - 4th FET - because of needing to mimic ERA cycle, had to thaw all 4 remaining embryos to day 5. In that process 3 of the embryos arrested and the remaining embryo was very poor quality. We weren't too surprised when that also ended in a BFN. - July 2018 - Full IVF round with PGS testing. 18 retrieved, 12 mature, 5 made it to day 5 testing day, 2 Normal. -October 2018 - 5th FET with a good quality PGS normal embryo with altered ERA transfer timing - BFN
