Regenerative medicine and fertility – or how endometrial and ovarian rejuvenation therapies can help to achieve pregnancy

If we were to look up what reproductive medicine is, we would roughly understand it to be the branch of health that, in dealing with human reproduction, is focused on the study of the creation of life itself. While this is true, one should not overlook another aspect that characterises it: its ability to provide the best results when it draws on other specialties. This is the case with regenerative medicine and, in particular, with the application of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which, since its first use in 1987, has become a biological material of broad therapeutic scope in branches such

IVF-Life and the Importance of Diagnosing the Male Factor

Contrary to popular belief, infertility and sterility diagnoses associated with the male are the cause of a large number of fertility treatments indicated by specialists in reproductive medicine. In fact, according to the latest National Activity Registry of the Spanish Fertility Society (SEF), 19.9% of in vitro fertilisation treatments with the patient’s own oocytes were carried out due to the male factor and 21.5% were linked to mixed causes, i.e., both male and female. At IVF-Life, as a clinic that approaches reproductive medicine in a global manner, we always advocate thoroughly studying all aspects that may be preventing the achievement
