Blastocyst Culture and Transfer

A blastocyst is an embryo developed in suitable laboratory settings for five days after the insemination process. They have a fluid-filled central cavity that contains two types of cells. The inner cell mass of the blastocyst gives rise to the fetus after implantation, and the outer layer of the cell gives rise to the placenta.

The procedure uses a culture media that mimics the changing environment of the reproductive tract and meets the unique environment of the embryo as it travels the fallopian tube. This technique enables the embryo to grow successfully till the blastocyst stage, and these blastocyst embryos are transferred to the woman’s uterus on the day five. It is the best option for the couple who have unsuccessful IVF or ICSI treatment even after having good quality eggs. The blastocysts transfer technique enables them to have more viable embryos for implantation and transfer, which helps achieve a more successful pregnancy.

Advantages of blastocyst culture

  • Reduces the risk of multiple pregnancies
  • Pregnancy and implantation success rate is higher
  • A competent embryo is transferred to the uterus
  • Blastocysts have better chances of implantation into the uterine wall compared to the earlier stage embryos
  • Enables select better embryo which is then replaced in the female uterus.

Blastocysts have a better chance of implantation, as they are more developed than other cells and have a higher probability. It also has a thin outer layer shell, which increases the chance of implantation into the uterine cavity.

This embryo is cultured in vitro for five days until it comes to the final stage of the embryo development or blastocyst, and then it is implanted into the uterine wall. The embryo at this stage has higher pregnancy rates. This also enables the specialist to choose the best embryo that increases the implantation rate. This also enables specialists to exchange fewer blastocysts and diminishes the likelihood of possibly dangerous twin or triplet birth.
