Is a day 3 or day 5 embryo transfer better?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 02/28/2018

It depends on each patient. According to the ASRM and SART guidelines, those with a favorable prognosis should opt for 1 embryo transfer, regardless of embryo stage. From ages 38-40, they recommend 2 blastocyst embryo transfers (day 5), and from age 41, 3 blastocysts (day 5) as well.
