Blastocyst Culture

Generally human embryos, obtained from IVF treatment, are routinely transferred into the uterine cavity on either Day 2 or Day 3 after egg retrieval. Using With special culture technique for embryo development, it is possible to successfully culture embryos up to the blastocyst stage (Day 5 after egg retrieval) and transfer the blastocyst stage embryos into the uterine cavity via the cervix. This technique can offer higher chance of implantation and consequently pregnancy rate in the specific group of infertile couples. Some couples may benefit from an early transfer rather than continued growth to the blastocyst stage. Therefore, blastocyst transfer should be an option for the couples with some specific conditions.
