Implantation and the continuation of pregnancy occur through a complicated and sophisticated dialogue, called “cross-talk,” which starts between the embryo and the endometrium in the early stages of oocyte maturation. This dialogue provides synchronization of the journey of the embryo to be implanted with the receptive endometrium. Understanding the activity and function of the hormones and factors involved in this dialogue will provide an understanding of endometrial receptivity, which plays a key role in implantation, and the determination of biomarkers specific for this period. As a result of the development of omics technology, it has become possible to identify biomarkers specific to endometrial receptivity by performing genomic, proteomic, and lipidomic analyses of these hormones and factors. The determination of these biomarkers, their optimization, and making them usable in the clinic will allow increased success in ART.

Keywords: Biomarkers, Endometrial receptivity, Genomic analysis, Implantation, Lipidomic analysis, Omics, Proteomic analysis.
