ENDORE (Endometrial Receptivity)

This clinical research study will investigate the biomarkers of endometrial receptivity, infertility and infertility treatment outcomes. A biomarker is a way to measure the health of a given body system or organ. This study seeks to understand the potential connections between a person’s microbiome (trillions of tiny organisms in the body, such as bacteria, fungi and viruses), diet and infertility.
