Dr. Daniel Bodri, why did you choose to focus on assisted reproduction?

I was first introduced to the field of assisted reproduction in the early 2000s while working at a large university hospital in Paris, France. I was immediately interested in the field’s broad scope of reproductive biology and endocrinology, sophisticated laboratory techniques, and practical approach to providing concrete solutions to the problem of infertility.

Later, I had the opportunity to discover different assisted reproduction methods in different countries such as France, Spain, the UK and Japan and took advantage of the best methods from each country.

How has reproductive medicine developed since you started working?

The 2000s saw significant changes in assisted reproduction, such as the emergence of innovative and safe ovarian stimulation protocols using GnRH antagonists and the GnRH agonist trigger.

Vitrification is another development that has profoundly revolutionized embryo and egg freezing technology. I have not only witnessed these but was also able to contribute to these advances myself by publishing my own research experience gained at prestigious large fertility clinics in Barcelona (Spain) or Tokyo (Japan).

What continues to amaze you most about being a fertility specialist?, Dr. Daniel Bodri

Even with over two decades of experience in this field, it still amazes me when we learn of a positive pregnancy test or see ourselves the foetal heartbeat on an early pregnancy scan just a few weeks after embryo transfer.

The same happens when I see successful, former patients with their young 2–3-year-old children and see their previous difficulties and efforts and what they went through at the clinic becoming just a distant memory.

What can we expect from the future of assisted reproduction? Are new technologies on the horizon?

There are many advances, continuously coming from the pharmaceutical, laboratory and genetic sides of assisted reproduction. We try to maintain our knowledge up-to-date and regularly think about innovation and new research ideas.

My own clinical interests are based around innovative ovarian stimulation protocols, egg donation, advanced 3D ultrasound, optimising the oocyte retrieval and embryo transfer procedure.

What advice would you give to patients starting fertility treatment?

The most important advice I give my patients is to persevere and carry on.

Take the treatment process step-by-step and try to stay optimistic throughout. In most cases, modern science can provide effective solutions, and regardless of the ultimate outcome, it’s better to have addressed the problem of subfertility than not to have tried at all.
