Everything that can go wrong with egg implantation

Every 28 days, the woman releases an egg that travels from the ovary to the uterus through one of the fallopian tubes. If a sperm penetrates the egg, it is fertilized and becomes an embryo. The embryo implants in the uterus. and 9 months later a baby is born.

This is what most of us know about fertility, but in reality there are hundreds of reasons why this process can fail and in this series of videos our medical team will try to explain everything that can go wrong with fertility and everything that we can do to fulfill your dream.

We usually think that when the egg is fertilized the pregnancy has already been achieved, however this zygote is not yet attached to the mother, it is a cell that is floating inside the fallopian tubes and for the implantation of the egg it must begin to divide and be transferred to the womb… There is still a long way to go.

“Even when there are implantation failures, there are options to fulfill the dream of being a mother”
