Patient Portal: Blastocyst Culture

Conventional IVF involves culturing embryos for 3 days after egg collection, with embryo transfer on day three. Blastocyst culture involves growing embryos in media for a further two to three days to allow their cells to divide many more times and develop into a blastocyst

This extended culture allows the trained eye of the embryologist to choose the very best embryo in order to maximise the chance of pregnancy
