I want to thank one of the readers for bringing this article to my attention. This is the study that I was accepted into back in June 2010, run by Dr. Bruce Lessey and Dr. Forstein in Greenville, SC. I went to their office in SC for an endometrial biopsy. Unfortunately I don’t think they were able to use my sample since I oddly didn’t ovulate that cycle, but he did still prescribe the Letrozole/Femara protocol that has gotten me successfully pregnant twice now.
You can read the entire article here.
A few highlights:
Our aim was to study ways to improve IVF success rates in women with suspected endometrial receptivity defects.
Lack of endometrial ανβ3 integrin expression is associated with a poor prognosis for IVF that might be improved with letrozole co-treatment. Prospective studies are needed to confirm and extend these findings but the data suggest that aromatase expression may contribute to implantation failure in some women.
I just wanted to post the whole article. I think its a very interesting read and also worth discussing with your medical provider.
