In a conventional IVF treatment cycle, embryos are transferred to the uterus within 2 or 3 days of insemination. The term Blastocyst Culture refers to an embryo that is artificially developed in the laboratory instead of inside the woman’s womb. Blastocyst Culture significantly increases the chances of pregnancy, especially in couples who have had repeated IVF failures. This is because most embryos transferred in conventional IVF may not have the quality to develop into blastocyst and beyond in the womb.
By carefully monitoring the embryo past its blastocyst stage, our experts can therefore pick the most viable ones and implant it onto the womb. Also, the number of embryos transferred being lesser than conventional IVF, Blastocyst culture reduces the risk of multiple pregnancies.
Who it is for
- Women who have had previous IVF failures.
- Women who have a large number of embryos and require the healthiest to be selected.
