Blastocyst transfer treatment in Hyderabad
A blastocyst is an advanced staged embryo in which two types of cells are present, one that forms the placenta and other cells from the fetus. With the help of IVF techniques, the embryo is grown in a laboratory in a special medium and is provided with special nutrients to achieve this advanced stage of development.
In blastocyst transfer, the embryo which is an advanced stage of development is transferred. The process is performed on the 5th day of the follicular aspiration. In this process, the doctor removes eggs with the help of the ovary (follicular aspiration), and then they are fertilized in a laboratory with the help of IVF and ICSI. After fertilization, the egg starts to divide and develop into an embryo, and in the stage of development, the first stage is a pronuclear stage, and reaches the 2 and 4 cell stage on the second day, eight-cell stage on the third day, the fourth day on morula stage and fifth day is the blastocyst stage. The embryos are developed in an incubator till the fifth day in a specialized culture medium called blastocyst culture. Then the doctor transfers the embryo into a female uterus, and it is called blastocyst transfer.
The greatest advantages of this process are that there is a higher chance of implantation. The chances of getting pregnant after blastocyst transfer are very high compared to the embryo transfer method.
