Step-by-Step Guide to the Process of Blastocyst Transfer

A blastocyst is an embryo of 5 days or more, which is transferred to the womb by the process of blastocyst transfer. In the IVF process, this is a great option to mature the embryo till the blastocyst stage to enhance the pregnancy chances.

The blastocyst transfer success rates are higher than embryo transfer at Joyce IVF fertility centre in Gurugram. 

Here is the step-by-step guide about what to expect during the process of blastocyst transfer – 

1. Explaining the Procedure – First of all, the procedure is explained to the couple along with the chances of pregnancy, risks and the best IVF options. These conditions are described based on their medical history, age and health conditions. 

2. Screening Tests – The screening tests are performed on both partners to know about any issues in their reproductive health. The screening tests include blood tests, hormonal tests, ovarian reserve tests, semen analysis, ultrasound etc. 

3. Ovarian Stimulation – Once our fertility specialists check the report and give a go-ahead to the couple, the hormonal injections are given to the female. This will release more than one egg to allow multiple egg harvesting. 

4. Ovum Harvesting – The mature eggs are then harvested in a simple procedure. The procedure is not painful at all as the anaesthesia is given to the patient. A needle is inserted through the vagina and eggs are harvested. No cut is made and the patient can go home after some rest. 

5. Semen Collection – The semen is collected from the male partner on the same day of ovum harvesting so that fertilization can be performed on the same day. This mimics the natural process so the chances of success increase. 

6. Fertilization in Lab – Once both the gametes are collected, they are taken to the closed working chambers, and fertilisation is performed. This leads to the creation of the embryo. The process can be performed by the normal IVF method or by the ICSI method. ICSI is performed in case of low-quality sperm, as one healthy sperm is injected into the egg to create an embryo. 

7. Embryo Culture – These embryos are then allowed to grow in the lab where they are kept in a nutrient-rich culture media and controlled environmental conditions. This helps the embryos grow from two cells to multi-cells and become a blastocyst eventually. A blastocyst contains about 200 to 300 cells and is the best stage for embryo transfer for a successful IVF at fertility centre in Gurugram.

8. Embryo Grading – In the embryo grading procedure, the embryos are assigned grades as per their health, arrangement of cells and their number. Embryo grading is performed once at 3-day-old embryos and then at 5-day-old embryos. ‘A’ grade means the best looking and a ‘C’ grade means the least healthy-looking embryo. 

9. Blastocyst Transfer – The best looking and the highest-grade blastocyst is chosen for transfer into the mother’s womb. A single blastocyst is transferred in most women in their 30s. This eliminates the risk of multiple pregnancies and gives the blastocyst enough space to latch and grow in the uterus. Visit Joyce IVF as we are among those fertility centres in Gurugram that have high blastocyst transfer success rates.

10. Embryo freezing – The rest of the embryos are frozen as per the couple’s wishes to provide a second chance in case of a failed IVF or these embryos can be kept for the second pregnancy as well. 

11. Pregnancy Test – After about 10 to 14 days of blastocyst transfer, the pregnancy test or the HCG test is performed to confirm the pregnancy.
