Blastocyst Culture

Blastocyst Culture

The blastocyst is usually a medical term that has been conveyed to the embryo developed during the IVF process after it goes ahead with the fertilization period of 5 to 6 days. You can also term them the advanced embryos that come with a better chance of implantation during the earlier stages. However, in order to let them reach this stage, the embryos are been provided with all the required support while getting developed and fertilized without any disturbance for a period of 5 days, to further turn into a blastocyst eventually.

The Embryos that have been transferred during the blastocyst stage have been known to boost the chances of pregnancy without pushing the rate of multiple pregnancies alongside. Within the past few years, numerous couples across the globe have got benefitted from the blastocyst culture method while undergoing the IVF treatment process.

Relevance of blastocysts in IVF

One of the key aspects of a blastocyst comes with its efficiency to reach a point where the future baby’s own genes eventually get triggered and carefully take over the rest of the fertilization process. This phenomenon is known as “genomic activation,” and simply due to genes being termed as the chemical codes that make us unique individuals, genomic activation can be deemed as the right element that helps a gene to transform into a unique individual right from the start of the conception process.

Benefits of  blastocyst culture

Blastocyst culture can enhance the overall conception chances for women undergoing IVF treatment and it can be said that the same outcome may not be achieved by an embryo. While the usual embryos get implanted during the 3rd day of the fertilization process, blastocyst gets carefully cultured until the 5th to 6th day of the same process. Well, this is right where it holds some real significance for all the couples that are going through IVF treatment and want to get the best outcome forward.

Blastocyst also helps in eliminating the risk of multiple births and that can very well said to be another added advantage of bringing it in use.
