Hello,

Long story short, we have unexplained infertility.  We proceeded with IVF and had 4 frozen embryos. We are down to our last embryo with no pregnancies to date. We were told 2 embryos were above average and 2 were average quality. I am wondering if I should try the ERA test prior to my next transfer but I don't want to waste the time and money if they aren't very accurate.  Just wondering your thoughts?

 

Thanks.

Yes, you should do it. It will tell how many days of progesterone is ideal. You can never really tell why the previous ones didn't implant but it would put your mind at ease knowing if you need more or less progesterone.

Our first FET failed.  We did an ERA test and found out my wife needed an extra day of progesterone - our second FET was successful and gave us our DD.  Both our embryos were PGS-normal so we think the ERA was definitely the difference for us - good luck!
