Blastocyst Culture and Transfer is a new-age technique that involves the creation of an embryo in a laboratory for 5-6 days following the insemination process. This procedure is in sharp contrast to the IVF treatment method, where embryos are transferred to the uterus immediately after insemination.
This procedure involves the conducting of multiple phases, which suggests that the embryo goes on to divide into many more cells, multiple times. This procedure has a high likelihood of success, as the time period that the embryo is kept in the lab enables the choice of the best one for implantation. It is an extremely viable procedure as it is done within 5 days, when ovulation levels are high.
While both IVF and Blastocyst Culture treatments may seem similar to the untrained eye, there is a huge difference in the time period that the embryos are kept out before implantation in the uterus. In IVF, the process happens within three days but in Blastocyst Culture, the embryos are kept in the lab for a period of five whole days following egg collection.
In the blastocyst procedure, the embryos are kept aside until after they hatch to increase the chances of a seamless pregnancy. Despite its apparent straightforwardness, blastocyst culture is a cutting-edge treatment that is offered only at specialised fertility centres.
Blastocyst Culture is a favoured course of treatment in the following cases:
