In the field of fertility treatment, the term ERA stands for Endometrial Receptivity Array or Endometrial Receptivity Analysis. It is a genetic test in which a small sample of a woman’s endometrial tissue is taken to assess if her endometrial lining is properly developed such that it can successfully accept an implanting embryo.
Technique of ERA Test
ERA test is done by obtaining a sample of endometrial lining during the implantation window. A tiny catheter is inserted through the cervix. Suction is created to draw out a sample of tissue from the lining. This sample is then sent for analysis using Next Generation Sequencing technology. If the tissue happens to be non-receptive, the test has to be re-performed, until the perfect implantation window is found.
