A blastocyst transfer, in simpler terms is an embryo transfer. It is recommended for women with tubal blocks, for couples who have opted to have their child through a surrogate, have a family history of genetic disorders, if both partners have fertility issues, or if they have had recurrent IVF failures.
A blastocyst is an embryo that has developed for 5 - 6 days after fertilisation. The embryos are cultured in the laboratory incubator to the blastocyst stage, before they are transferred to the womb. The blastocyst must successfully attach itself to the wall of the womb for the woman to become pregnant.
“We have a very high success rate with blastocyst transfer, especially with the scientific advancements that are available today. At the Srushti Fertility Centre, we ensure that only the best are selected and then implanted, which is a huge factor for successful conception.” – Dr. S. Samundi Sankari Chief Doctor.
