Information for Women & Families

The ReceptivaDxTM Test is performed on an endometrial biopsy sample, a routine procedure that can be performed during a normal office visit with your Ob-Gyn or Reproductive Specialist. Once collected, the sample is placed in a preservative and sent to our testing facility in Greenville, South Carolina. Once in the lab, biopsies are processed and evaluated by our pathology team. A full pathology report is then prepared and submitted to your physician. Results are usually available in 7-10 days.

In simplest terms, BCL6 is a marker for endometriosis. If the BCL6 marker is found to be elevated in a sample taken from an endometrial biopsy, the patient's inability to become pregnant is likely due to undetected endometriosis interfering with the ability of a fertilized egg to implant. Endometriosis can block successful implantation in both sexual intercourse and in vitro fertilization. While many patients hear about endometriosis in women who have experienced pelvic pain, painful intercourse or heavy bleeding during menses, milder forms without symptoms can be present without experiencing any physical symptoms. These milder forms of endometriosis are often undetectable and cannot always be visualized through ultrasound or laparoscopy. This is the power and benefit to patients by having the ReceptivaDxTM test performed.

If found to be positive for BCL6, a treatment plan involving hormone therapy or laparoscopy to remove visible endometriosis can correct the situation. Patients undergoing 60 days of hormone therapy have shown excellent progress in achieving pregnancy in recent studies. Testimonials of women that have experienced this diagnosis and these courses of treatment that have moved forward and conceived can be found on our website.

Receptiva is the only approved and fully licensed test in the US to measure the BCL6 marker in endometrial biopsy samples. We encourage you to download our Receptiva Information Sheet and and discuss it with your physician.
