A relatively new test called endometrial receptivity array (ERA) is a diagnostic procedure that may help determine whether the endometrial cavity is ready for embryo implantation.
The procedure involves taking a biopsy of a small sample of the endometrium, or lining of the uterus, for molecular analysis. Problems with the endometrial lining are one of the causes for infertility in women with recurrent pregnancy loss or multiple failed IVF transfers. The results of an ERA biopsy are used to predict the ideal implantation window for the above patients.
