Why use EMMA?
- EMMA will determine whether the uterine microbial environment is or is not optimal for embryo implantation.
- EMMA determines the percentage of healthy bacteria (Lactobacillus) in your endometrium. If the percentage is low, the report suggests the appropriate probiotic or antibiotic treatment for each patient.
- This test also reports the most abundant bacteria detected in the endometrial sample. This informs the ALICE part of the test, indicating the possible presence of bacterial pathogens that can cause chronic endometritis or other infections.
- Microbiology counselling is available for doctors.
- If pathogens have been detected, antibiotic and probiotic therapy may be recommended, followed by a second EMMA test to confirm that the endometrium has been returned to a healthy, optimal state.
