Amongst all the advantages of blastocyst embryo culture (blastocyst IVF), we can highlight the following:
- Improved embryo selection process, as it allows the embryologist to gather more information.
- Improved embryo-endometrial synchrony, which enhances the chances for implantation.
- Diminished risk of multiple pregnancy, as it allows for multiple single embryo transfers (SETs) without altering the overall pregnancy success rates.
