One of the causes of miscarriage or unsuccessful IVF treatment relates to problems in the female immune system. These problems can compromise successful embryo implantation.
We can give you special tests which can identify if you are at risk of immune problems. These tests measure Natural Killer Cell activity. Natural Killer cells are part of a normal immune system and help to fight off infection but research suggests that sometimes these cells can attack the early embryo or foetus leading to implantation failure or miscarriage.
