IRIS has been developed by our team of fertility experts to provide a clearer view of what’s happening within the uterine space.
Why does IRIS monitor oxygen and temperature?
There have been enormous developments in fertility research that have helped labs create the optimum environment for growing high quality embryos consistently and two of the most important factors to control are temperature and levels of oxygen.
Until IRIS, these levels have never been monitored in the uterus, so we’re here to shed some light on this and increase our understanding and hopefully provide some answers to people who are struggling to conceive.
Is every uterus the same?
Just as every person is different, so too is every uterus and the uterine environment. We know that miniscule fluctuations in temperature can have a big impact on our bodies, however everyone is working from a different baseline.
Instead of working to a ‘one-size-fits-all’ model, IRIS will provide a personalised set of data which your fertility specialist can use to determine the next best course of action to increase your chances of a successful conception.
Is the process comfortable?
Much like a traditional IUI (or intrauterine contraceptive device), the placement of IRIS within the womb should take between 5-10 minutes by one of our recommended experts. After placement, you might feel some mild cramping and we’ve designed the external shorts (which capture data from IRIS) to fit comfortably against your skin to avoid discomfort whilst you’re continuing with your daily routine.
Are you holding any trials?
We are regularly working with fertility specialists and clinics across the UK so if you’d like to find out more information, please get in touch here.
