Nutritional Supplement Guide – Immunological Infertility
About Immunological Infertility
Up to two-thirds of early pregnancies miscarry. The most common reason for IVF failure is that the embryo doesn’t implant properly. Chromosomal abnormalities in embryos might be a major factor in repeated miscarriage or implantation failure, however, it is now thought by some experts that a significant cause may relate to abnormal function of the woman’s immune system preventing successful embryo implantation. There are a number of experimental medical treatments offered by IVF clinics, including the Zita West Clinic, for women with diagnosed or suspected immunological infertility problems. These treatments may be complemented by a special nutritional programme and supplements designed by our nutritionists in collaboration with our medical experts.

Supplements can play a role in supporting healthy immune function, but the foundation for reproductive health is still a healthy diet, tailored to your individual needs. If you have an inflammatory or autoimmune condition, or are receiving treatment for immunological infertility at another clinic, we would recommend that you have a nutrition consultation to find out how our special nutrition programme designed for women with ‘immune infertility’ may help.
Consultations last 60 minutes and can be carried out in person or by Skype.
If you have suffered repeated miscarriages or IVF failure we would recommend a consultation with one of our medical team to discuss whether our immunological infertility IVF programme may be suitable for you. Please phone the clinic on 0808 196 4060 to find out more.
