What is a blastocyst transfer? 

Blastocyst transfer in IVF can increase the chances for success while decreasing the likelihood of multiples. Embryos are carried to the uterus through a soft catheter. This painless process is similar to a pap smear and does not require any anaesthesia. 

Blastocyst embryo transfer implantation procedure

In most clinics abroad, on the day of the procedure a doctor will discuss with you the quality, quantity of your embryos, and how many you wish to have transferred. You will be provided with a room and all necessary garments. 

The embryos are placed in a small amount of fluid inside the catheter, which is passed through the cervix with a simultaneous speculum examination and ultrasound guıdance. The embryos are positioned so as to reach the top part of the uterus. The catheter is then removed, and it is checked whether all the embryos have been transferred.

What’s next?

After the blastocyst transfer implantation is complete, you will be moved lying flat on your back from the procedure room to your private room. You must remain as flat as possible, so a bed pan will be brought to you by the nurse soon after the transfer procedure, if needed. If you wish, cryopreservation of not transferred good quality embryos can be made, when they are frozen in liquid nitrogen, carefully labeled and stored in the embryo bank. These can be used in subsequent ivf cycles if blastocyst transfer pregnancy is not achieved on the first attempt or if you decide to have more children in future.
