Blastocyst transfer, which is one of the advanced in vitro fertilization techniques applied today, is a method that offers a much higher chance of pregnancy to couples who want to have children. The blastocyst transfer method, which is a method that minimizes the possibility of multiple pregnancy, which is frequently encountered in IVF treatments, supports families in making their plans to have a child more effectively. The blastocyst is defined as the 5th or 6th day of the egg becoming an embryo. Before transfer, one or two embryos of the highest quality are selected and the transfer is carried out. This method is among the most important processes of IVF treatment. What is blastocyst transfer, what are its advantages and risks? You can continue reading our article, which includes the details of blastocyst transfer with questions.

What is blastocyst transfer?

Blastocyst transfer, which has an extremely important place in the IVF treatment process, is the process of transferring the embryo created in the laboratory environment to the woman on the 5th or 6th development day. Embryos are followed in incubators in the laboratory and when they reach the blastocyst stage, transfer to the uterus is performed. Blastocyst transfer has many positive contributions to the IVF process, such as enabling better quality embryo transfer and reducing the risk of multiple pregnancy.

What are the advantages of blastocyst transfer?

Blastocyst transfer is a method that has been used frequently in recent years, depending on the developing technologies. In the first years of in vitro fertilization treatment, the expected time for transfer was 48 hours, but this period has been extended in parallel with the developments experienced today. In the blastocyst transfer method, embryos with the highest success rate are selected more easily with transfers made after 5 and 6 days. In general, the advantages of blastocyst transfer can be listed as follows;

The chance to achieve better results against recurrent pregnancy failures, thanks to the selection of embryos with better development potential and compatibility with the uterus,

Reducing the possibility of multiple pregnancy by transferring fewer embryos with high viability,

The chance to observe the embryo development more clearly and healthily,

Freezing of embryos at the time when they have the highest developmental power, that is, at the blastocyst stage,

· Allowing different methods to examine embryo viability.

What is the risk of blastocyst transfer?

The condition that can be encountered frequently as a result of blastocyst transfer is the factor of multiple pregnancy. For this reason, some legal restrictions have been imposed on the number of embryos to be transferred in order to be protected from the risks of multiple pregnancy. For our country, this limit has been determined to be a maximum of 2 embryos. By performing 1 or 2 blastocyst transfers in embryo transfer on the 5th day, both the risk of multiple pregnancy is reduced and the chance of pregnancy is increased. The aim of IVF treatment is to achieve a healthy fertilization. In this direction, better quality but less number of embryo transfers will minimize the risks that may be encountered and will facilitate healthy results.

Who is blastocyst transfer suitable for?

Blastocyst transfer can be applied to all couples with a high number of fertilized eggs and good embryo quality on the 2nd day. Since a single embryo can be transferred in the first two attempts under the age of 35, a blastocyst transfer will be made to them, thus preventing multiple pregnancy. In our country, blastocyst transfer is successfully applied and high success rates are achieved. However, the remaining quality embryos after the transfer are successfully frozen with the vitrification method, which is a new and fast freezing technique, giving couples a second chance.
