In in-vitro fertilization(IVF) an embryo is implanted in the uterus which attaches itself to it and thus a patient achieves pregnancy. This embryo is formed in the laboratory by artificial fertilization of the sperm and the ovum. The embryo is 6-8 celled when it is implanted in the endometrium of the uterus.
A furthermore developed stage of the embryo is the blastocyst. A blastocyst is 50-200 celled and is much more developed and mature than anday3 embryo. Thus it has better chances to get implanted and attach to the endometrium wall
So here comes the concept of blastocyst culture, which is now available in India at Mathrutva Fertility Hospitals
How has blastocyst culture helped in overcoming infertility problems ?
Traditionally, embryos are transferred to the uterus on day three (called Day 3 transfer) after fertilization and it is not uncommon to transfer three or four embryos. However, it is now possible to grow embryos in the laboratory to the blastocyst stage of development, which occurs on day five after fertilization when the embryo has 50-200 cells. Typically, the strongest, healthiest embryos make it to the blastocyst stage as they have survived key growth and division processes and have a better chance of implanting once transferred
With newer technology of blastocyst culture and transfer in Mathrutva Fertility Hospitals, in vitro fertilization has found a new dimension.
The major advantage of day 5 transfer is embryo selection. The implantation rate per day 5 blastocyst transfers is greater than for transfer of day 2 or 3 embryos
Advantages of opting for Blastocyst Culture
Patients exhibiting certain chromosomal disorder might benefit from blastocyst, since specific chromosomal disorders often result in a halt of early embryonic development during a prolonged embryo culture. Blastocyst culture provides the patients with the opportunity to choose a viable embryo and thus improving the chances of giving birth to a healthy child
Blastocyst culture is advisable for women beyond 38 years of age. The risk for aneuploidy (abnormal number of chromosomes) increases in correlation with female age. Embryos with aneuploidy tend to stop development after the third day. Higher implantation rates may be achieved by transferring one to two embryos at the blastocyst stage
Another important advantage is that there is reduced uterine contractility from the 5th day onwards
Why should you choose Mathrutva Fertility Hospitals for your Blastocyst Culture ?
Mathrutva has the best doctors and laboratory professionals and thus provides the best blastocyst culture services.
The culture media used in Mathrutva Fertility Hospitals is sequential culture media system which gives them the option of culturing the embryos for as long as is clinically appropriate for each particular patient’s situation
The media and the programs they use, allows them to culture the embryos to whatever number of days is appropriate for the particular patient
Since the system of embryo freezing is so good at Mathrutva, the laboratory does not lose anything if they transfer fewer embryos to reduce your risk of triplets or quadruplets, and just save the extra embryos for a later pregnancy
Now you can decide for yourself where else would you get such outstanding facilities other than Mathrutva Fertility Hospitals.
