If you have experienced (recurrent) miscarriage or failed implantation then you may have heard of the term ‘reproductive immunology’.
What is this exactly? Put simply, reproductive immunology is the study of how the immune system interacts with any aspect of the female and male reproductive systems, and their respective physical structures including but not limited to the egg and sperm and a future and developing embryo or even the foetus.
Currently, reproductive immunology is a controversial topic. While there may be specialists who do not believe such an issue exists, the latest scientific research suggests that as many as 1 in 5 couples are affected by immunological infertility.
