Blastocyst Embryo Transfer

Blastocyst Embryo TraBlastocyst embryo transfer is the implantation of the fertilized egg in the womb of a woman after five to six days, instead of two to three days, which is usually the case with in vitro fertilization (IVF). After developing in the culture fluid for this amount of time, the fertilized egg turns into a ball of about 120 cells known as a blastocyst. 

This has little impact on the process of IVF procedure. The patient just needs to wait a little longer for the transfer to happen. All fertilized eggs do not develop into blastocysts. The chances can be increased with the use of special culture fluids once the embryo starts to develop. The implantation of such embryos has been known to increase the chances of pregnancy, especially in the case of younger women. 

Blastocysts considerably increase the chances of pregnancy and hence most doctors endorse the implantation of only one such embryo to avoid multiple pregnancies. Any extra blastocysts that have successfully developed can be stored in a frozen condition for use in subsequent cycles of IVF. Blastocysts are usually allowed to develop when there are numerous embryos that are developing well and are healthy as seen on day three of fertilization. This kind of transfer can also be used for Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)

As against the rate of successful pregnancy through solely using IVF (27. 2 percent) the use of blastocyst embryo transfer records a much higher rate of success (44.6 percent). Although, this statistic was observed in women aged between 35 and 37 years; irrespective of the woman’s age, blastocyst embryo transfer records a difference in success rate that ranges between 14.1-17.4 percent. This figure only goes on to prove the effectiveness of blastocyst embryo transfer as alternative in cases when natural conception fails. Mexico, India, Greece and Thailand are among the most popular medical tourism destinations for this treatment.
