Blastocyst Culture and Transfer: All You Need to Know

Blastocyst culture and transfer is an IVF process in which the embryo consisting of 100 to 150 cells is cultured over a period of 5 days after which the embryo is transferred to the woman’s uterus. In normal in-vitro fertilization, the embryo is transferred to the woman’s uterus on the second or the third day. In this process, the embryo is left to grow for two or three more days till the blastocyst stage is achieved. In the blastocyst stage, it is easier for the embryo to attach itself to the uterine lining during the process of implantation.

Blastocyst Culture and Transfer: All You Need to Know

Here are a few things you should know about Blastocyst culture and transfer.

1.  Blastocyst culture and transfer yield better results

Unlike the regular 3 days transfer in in-vitro fertilization, the blastocyst culture process can take anywhere between 5 to 7 days. This allows time for the bad embryos to be separated from the good ones as the bad ones are not able to stand this much time. This also helps to create a better environment for the embryo transfer and getting attached to the uterine lining. Overall, this yields better results.

2.  Multiple pregnancies can be avoided

Since the 3 days transfer method doesn’t have any viable method to check whether the embryo is good for a pregnancy or not, it is difficult to avoid multiple pregnancies with the regular IVF method. But with waiting for the blastocyst stage, many non-viable embryos are already eliminated and the specialists at the World IVF center can choose the most competent embryo for transfer using special techniques.

3.  How much time does it take for the process

The process can take anywhere between 5 to 7 days depending on the quality of eggs and sperms that are being used for the IVF. Usually, the embryo with blastocyst formed is transferred on the 5th day from the beginning of the culture. By this time, the uterine lining is ready to accept the arriving embryo which is usually the normal time as well for the embryo attachment in the normal process.
