I’ve been for a couple of AI’s, as well as 2 IVF’s. My gynae said that there is nothing wrong with me, except that the embryo is not attaching to the womb. I’ve read comments/articles on L-Selectin being”embryo glue”. Please can you ask Dr V what supplements can I take which contains this “embryo glue”?Friday, March 6th, 2009
Fortunately the “American” era of “embryo glue “has come and gone quickly. We understand today that whether an embryo will implant or not is based on three factors:
1) The quality of the endometrium.
2) The technique and experience of the person doing the embryo transfer.
3) The quality of the embryo, which is dependent on the quality of the sperm and the quality of the egg.
It is therefore clear then that no amount of “glue” of what ever substance is going to ensure that the embryo implants and lead to a pregnancy.
