Your immune system and fertility – what’s the link?

We’re joined by Dr. Hector Izquierdo, the Medical Director of Vida Fertility Institute Alicante.

He shares his expertise on how and why your immune system and fertility might be connected and how one might be affecting the other, uncovering what you might want to test and how this can impact factors like implantation and recurrent miscarriage.

He gives us detailed and expert answers to the following questions:

  • What exactly is immunology? And how does it connect to your fertility?
