Blastocyst Transfer

A blastocyst is an embryo that has been developed in the laboratory for five or six days after insemination, in contrast to conventional IVF which involves transferring embryos to the womb two to three days after egg collection and insemination (this is referred to as a Day 2 or 3 transfer).

With a blastocyst transfer, the embryo has advanced to the five or 6-day stage. This means the embryo has divided many more times into many more cells over this period. Blastocysts have a very thin outer shell thus potentially increasing the chances of implantation into the uterine cavity. Most of the blastocyst contains a fluid cavity and it is possible to see the cells which will become the baby and those which will make up the placenta. While the majority of fertilised eggs will develop into a three-day old embryo, only perhaps 40% of these embryos will develop into a blastocyst. Therefore, blastocysts are considered to be a more "select" group of embryos with a higher chance of pregnancy.

The 5 or 6 day blastocyst is a much more advanced structure than the 3 day old embryo and the real advantage of transferring blastocysts is the high live birth rate associated with blastocyst transfer.

Higher pregnancy rate in women having Blastocyst Transfer
Data suggests that blastocyst transfer can increase the chances of a live birth but it needs to be remembered that each couple must be considered independently.

  • Before 4 year my baby expired in 8 month pregnancy we were tying now till that time but my wife did'nt conceive my age is 43 wife age is 32 and had tried many ivf centres but didn’t get success. After that I had lost hope but one of my friend suggested to meet Dr. Geeta Jain once and after initial hesitation I went to Aastha Ivf Centre for the treatment and Dr. Geeta Jain and their staff treated us very gently and gave us right direction.

  • My name is Ravi and I got married in 2010, after trying for a long time we were hopeless and harassed. We did the best that we could and consult the best gynaecologists in our home town "Saharanpur" but could not succeed. One day one of our friend told me about Dr. Geeta Jain Clinic Aastha Ivf Centre and after all the investigations we consult her. After the endless effort of Dr.Geeta and her team finally we got the good news and blessed with a baby girl. We cannot even thanks them in words for their help and moral support in our tough time. May God bless them.
