The embryo implantation is the most complex and essential stage of pregnancy in establishment origins of human gestation, and it is currently considered a single biological phenomenon. A successful embryo implantation depends significantly on the quality of the embryo and at the same time of the development of the endometrium (lining of the uterus), which will become receptive to the embryo at the early stages of the menstrual cycle. The two-way communication between embryo and endometrium enables successfully embryo adhesion and forms a permanent contact allowing the implantation of the embryo.
