Beneficial Bacteria Increase IVF Success
In a study conducted in Spain, it was revealed that beneficial bacteria in the uterus increased the success of IVF treatment, which was applied to enable women with damaged, blocked or tubeless tubes to become mothers. Gynecology and IVF Specialist Prof. Dr. Erkut Attar evaluated the work as “a new ray of hope” for families who want to have children. Prof. Dr. Attar said, “The absence of beneficial bacteria reduced the rate of adhesion of the embryo to the uterine wall from 60.7 percent to 23.1 percent. This is a very important finding,” he said.
One of the most preferred infertility treatments today is the ‘in vitro fertilization‘ method. It has been revealed that the beneficial bacteria in the uterus affect the success of the in vitro fertilization treatment, which is made by combining the egg and sperm in the laboratory environment and transferring the embryo obtained after fertilization to the mother’s womb.
According to research conducted in Spain’s leading IVF clinics, beneficial bacteria in the flora in the uterus affect the success of IVF treatment. Evaluating the results of the research, IVF Specialist Prof. Dr. Erkut Attar interpreted the study as a “light of hope” for families who want to have children.
