Blastocyst Culture is a versatile method of embryo culture where the embryo developed by artificial fertilisation is allowed to grow beyond the conventional three day period. Unlike the conventional procedures of IVF where the embryo is transferred to the womb by the third day of fertilisation, blastocyst culture involves transfer of embryo by the fifth or sixth day.
Blastocyst culture increases the success rate of conception. This is because, blastocyst stage of embryo development is endometrial friendly and hence implantation ready. The probability for successful implantation is higher in this case. The blastocyst stage also ensures optimal embryo selection for transfer, which contributes to increased implantation rate.
When is Blastocyst Culture performed?
Blastocyst culture is usually done in the following patients: -
Blastocyst Culture Procedure
The procedure of blastocyst culture works on a path parallel to the normal procedure. Once egg and sperms are retrieved and fertilised in a laboratory, they are stored there for a period of 5 to 6 days. During this time blastocyst culturing occurs.
In normal cases, the endometrial thickens and creates the ideal environment for implantation by the fifth or sixth day of ovulation. In blastocyst culture technique, the selected embryos are transferred to the womb during this period. This maximises the probability for successful implantation.
In many patients, the method of sequential transfer is adopted. These techniques require the assistance of a skilled expert and advanced infrastructure. Blastocyst culture considerably decreases the chances of multiple pregnancies. They also ensure the transfer of well developed and quality embryo.
Genesis fertility Research Centre is considered to be pioneers in the field of infertility treatment techniques such as blastocyst culture, with more than 4000 couples being benefitted by the same.
