In preparation, I'm printing a few CE resources. I may have included these in previous posts. . . what can I say, my memory has never been what it used to be! Still, having these in one place might be helpful for someone, so here we go.
December 2016 review article on the subject 'Chronic Endometritis and Infertility.' This references the links to repeat pregnancy loss (RPL), IVF implantation failure. It discusses diagnostic criteria, pathology, and treatment.

I'm also planning on giving my OB copies of the first two papers. Maybe she'll get offended and won't take them, like the OB at my previous practice. Maybe she'll take them and never read them. But maybe I'll help provide some additional information that can benefit future patients. Of women with RPL, 50% don't find an explanation. I suspect, from the growing body of CE literature, that CE explains a proportion of that 50%. If only we'd found and treated it a year ago, who knows what might have happened.
