What is a good number of blastocysts?
A blastocyst is the final stage of the embryo before we cryopreserve them or transfer to a patient.
Only 30-50% of embryos growing on day 3 will reach the blastocyst stage.
So from our 8 embryos that initially fertilized, about 3-4 will be viable for transfer..
How big is a day 5 blastocyst?
In humans, blastocyst formation begins about 5 days after fertilization when a fluid-filled cavity opens up in the morula, the early embryonic stage of a ball of 16 cells. The blastocyst has a diameter of about 0.1–0.2 mm and comprises 200–300 cells following rapid cleavage (cell division).

Can PGS damage embryos?
PGS testing is not without risk. In terms of damage to the actual embryo, yes this is a possibility and some data shows that embryos can be lost during the process.
Why do embryos stop growing after Day 3?
When embryos are cultured to the blastocyst stage in the IVF laboratory, it is common to see about half of the embryos stop growing by the end of the third day. This rate of attrition is normal and is a result of the poor developmental potential of some of the embryos.
Why do good embryos not implant?
Embryo Quality Many embryos are not able to implant after transfer to the uterus because they are flawed in some way. Even embryos that look good in the lab may have defects that cause them to die instead of growing. In nearly all cases, it’s not that your uterus has something wrong with it so you can’t carry a baby.
What percentage of blastocysts are chromosomally normal?
At 35 years of age, about 50% of a woman’s eggs are chromosomally normal. By the time a woman reaches 40, about 10-15% of her eggs are chromosomally normal. Unfortunately, chromosomally abnormal eggs will develop into chromosomally abnormal embryos following fertilization.
What percentage of day 5 embryos are Euploid?
The percentages of blastocysts biopsied on days 5, 6, and 7 were 62.5, 35.8, and 1.7%, respectively. Blastocyst euploid rates on days 5, 6, and 7 were 49.5, 36.5, and 32.9%, respectively. Earlier blastocyst development was associated with a significantly increased euploid rate (p < 0.0001).
What percentage of blastocysts are Euploid?
60.3%Blastocyst stage preimplantation genetic screening One hundred and fifty-two blastocysts from 46 patients underwent TE biopsy on day 5 or day 6 in 49 cycles of IVF–PGS. One embryo was reported with no result, which was excluded from the analysis. The percentage of euploid embryos was found to be 60.3% (91/151).
What percentage of embryos come back PGS normal?
Based on our most recent PGS data for 2018, women in the age category of 38-40 had an 82% chance of pregnancy with a PGS Cycle. Women in the age category above 40 had a 60% chance of pregnancy.
How many eggs reach blastocyst?
There is tremendous attrition from egg numbers to blastocysts for transfer or freezing. Typically, it goes something like this: 10 eggs, 8 mature eggs, 6 fertilized embryos, 4 eight cell embryos, 2 to 3 blastocysts. If the egg numbers are larger than 20, we typically have more immature eggs in the bunch.
Are Day 5 blastocysts better than Day 6?
Main outcome measure(s): Implantation and pregnancy rates. Result(s): Blastocysts transferred on day 5 implanted at nearly twice the rate of blastocysts transferred on day 6 (36.3% vs. 19.0%). Pregnancy rates were also almost twice as high among the day 5 transfer patients (59.3% vs.
