The recent advances in assisted reproduction have made possible to study and interfere in almost every step of the human reproductive process except for implantation. However, the most complex and important step remains in great part unknown. Implantation in human has proven to be less efficient as compared to other species. However, in IVF patients, it has been evaluated to be even poorer. This paper highlights the factors related to infertile patients and IVF treatments that can affect implantation as well as implantation%u2019s clinical aspects related to these treatments: plantation failure and early pregnancy loss.
