Blastocyst

To Blastocyst or Not...That is the Question

When undergoing IVF, there might come a time when you are faced with the decision to "go to blastocyst," or not. Simply put, this refers to whether you opt to culture your embryos in a Petri dish for 5 days in the lab, before having them transferred back to the uterus.
 
There are serious consequences to doing it or not doing it, so this decision must not be taken lightly. Not surprisingly, embryos fare much better living inside the uterus, as opposed to living outside the body.
