What is an ERA Test?
ERA stands for Endometrial Receptivity Array. It is a genetic test which uses a small sample of a woman’s endometrial tissue to evaluate whether or not the endometrial lining is prepared to accept an implanting embryo.

Each woman has an “implantation window” in her period which is a few days long, generally occurring from the 19-23 days of the menstrual period. During this time, the luteal or secretory stage, the ovaries are producing progesterone. The progesterone causes many subtle but important changes to the uterine covering in order to create a perfect case for implantation. Proteins are created which make the lining thicker and more receptive. In about 84% of women this small window occurs at the expected time. However, researches at Igenomix labs in Spain discovered that about 16% of women have a unique window which can be earlier or later than expected. For IVF cycles, this could mean that the embryo transfer is happening on the wrong day, when the window hasn’t opened yet or has already closed, thereby causing implantation failure.
Thanks to ERA Tests everybody will be able to get pregnant.
