For the examination of the uterine mucosa for the individual immunological factors, our laboratory requires a bioptate of the uterine lining. This procedure can be carried out by your gynecologist and is performed without anesthesia on an outpatient basis. We recommend the execution between the 19th and 21th day of the cycle.
In the Placenta-Lab of the University Clinic for Gynecology and Obstetrics of Jena, the cells of the uterine lining will then be tested with the help of specific examination methods for the concentration of uNK cells and possibly also plasma cells. Thereby the number of immune cells as well as the localization and the surrounding tissue are assessed.
After all the results are available, your gynecologist will inform you about the possibilities of further treatment.
