Prepare for your next cycle with the ALICE test

The Analysis of Infectious Chronic Endometritis (ALICE) test can detect if the bacteria causing chronic endometritis is present in the lining of your womb.

Is ALICE right for me?

There are lots of factors that must be right for an embryo to implant successfully in your uterus – and one of them is the health of the endometrium (lining of the womb). It’s one of the reasons why an IVF or frozen embryo transfer (FET) cycle may have failed, despite having good quality embryos. If this happens, we may recommend having an ALICE test. It can tell us whether any pathogenic bacteria is causing your implantation failures or miscarriages, so we can treat it before your next cycle.

Who’s it for

You might want to use the ALICE test if…

  • You’ve experienced repeated implantation failure with good quality embryos
  • You’ve experienced repeated miscarriages
  • You want to maximise implantation success on your first cycle
  • You’re undergoing IVF or frozen embryo transfer (FET)
