Embryo Glue

Embryo Glue

EmbryoGlue is a transfer medium composed of hyaluronan (a type of carbohydrate present in the uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries) that helps the embryo to stick to the lining of the womb after the embryo transfer. Embryo transfer is the final step of the IVF treatment cycle, and using embryo glue during embryo transfer encourages a implantation.Embryoglue is developed to exhibit a close resemble to the environment in the womb so that it is easy for the embryo to adapt to a new environment. Rathimed Fertility Centre recommends the utilization of embryoglue


during the embryo transfer to increase the likelihood of implantation and development.

EmbryoGlue acts as a bridge between the embryo and the womb and is rich in carbohydrates, amino acids and protein that are required by the embryo to develop properly. There is no much difference between traditional embryo transfer and embryoglue transfer, though in this method, the embryo is placed in a medium and then transferred into the uterine cavity. In a natural implantation process, the uterine wall prepares with naturally-occurring substance to assist in the embryo implants. It has been found that the level of hyaluronan in the uterine cavity  increases around the time the embryo implants, thus it is believed that they plays a critical role in assisting implantation. The same medium and conditions are mimicked by using the embryoglue to assist in implantation of an embryo from an IVF cycle.

How Is Embryo Glue transfer performed in IVF?

One hour prior to the embryo transfer, the embryos are placed in a medium enriched with embryoglue to thicken and bind the substance to the embryos. This creates an environment similar to the uterine cavity and also improves its ability to mix with uterine fluids, thereby preventing the embryo from drifting.

Which are eligible for a EmbryoGlue transfer?

EmbryoGlue transfer is beneficial for couples who have had recurrent implantation failures after IVF and women with high maternal. EmbryoGlue increases the chances of pregnancy rates for couples with unexplained infertility. Recurrent implantation failure may occur due to the absence of an adequate atmosphere and conditions inside the uterine cavity or that the embryo was not able to adapt to the new environment. Transferring the embryo to the Embryoglue medium provides all the necessary factors and conditions that are required for the implantation and development of the embryo. The embryo sticks to the uterine cavity with the adhesive effect of the Embryoglue, thus increasing the chances of implantation. They are especially useful while using a frozen embryo for implantation and development.
