Role of the uterus in fertility, pregnancy, and developmental programming

Role of the uterus in fertility, pregnancy, and developmental programming
The extent to which the uterine endometrium contributes to the success of fertility treatments has long been debated. Several uterine conditions have been associated with poor endometrial receptivity and low pregnancy rates (1). Thin endometrium, fibroids, adenomyosis, and endometriosis, for example, can each affect uterine receptivity and limit the ability to conceive. Many of these conditions are commonly seen in the infertile population and many may go undiagnosed. In the absence of obvious defects, the contribution of uterine receptivity to in vitro fertilization success has been controversial; the uterus and eggs are linked in most women undergoing in vitro fertilization making it difficult to discern the relative contribution of the egg verses the endometrium.
