A Promising Procedure To Cure Infertility : Blastocyst Culture
Blastocyst culture, a reliable and risk free way of artificial culturing is a main component in In-Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) or test tube procedure, these days. Its feature of minimising multiple pregnancies makes it a popular option in ART (Assisted Reproduction Techniques).
The formation of blastocyst occurs in about five days from fertilisation. In ART, blastocyst culturing is done artificially in a laboratory setting and the best quality ones are implanted in the womb. In blastocyst culturing, the embryos are allowed to develop for 4 to 6 days and hence, the best developed ones are easily identifiable. This helps in increasing the success rate of the procedure. The process needs to be performed by a skilled embryologist for the best results.
Scope of Blastocyst Culture
Blastocyst culture is best suited for those patients who: –
- Have better chances at blastocyst development based on the age and infertility conditions.
- Have previously failed many times at achieving a successful pregnancy.
- Have a high-risk factor of conceiving multiple pregnancies of higher order.
Benefits of Blastocyst Culture
Blastocyst culture is emerging as a highly successful procedure in artificial fertilisation. The popularity of the technique can be attributed to its benefits as discussed below.
- Reduces probability of multiple pregnancies
The process of blastocyst transfer involves the transfer of best quality blastocyst into the womb. Unlike other techniques only one or rarely two best quality blastocysts are transferred, hence effectively reducing the threat of high rate multiple pregnancies.
- Higher rate of implantation
The rate of implantation is higher in this procedure. This is because only the best developed and highly robust embryo is selected for implantation, increasing the rate of successful conception of pregnancy.
