Original Title: Estudio del entorno microbiológico uterino en reproducción asistida
Authors' recommendations: Very low-quality evidence does not allow to determine the benefit associated to the endometrial microbiome test in assisted reproduction and in patients with repeated implantation failure and/or recurrent miscarriages. No comparative studies assessing the clinical usefulness of the endometrial microbiome test in patients undergoing assisted fertilization treatments and who experience repeated implantation failures and/or recurrent miscarriages have been found. The clinical practice guidelines consulted do not mention the endometrial microbiome test. The coverage policies consulted coming from public and private health sponsors from Europe and the United States as well as public sponsors from Latin America, do not mention this technology. In Argentina, no studies on cost-effectiveness, financial or organizational impact have been found; therefore, its impact on this dimension is uncertain.
