What Can Blastocyst Do For You? by Dr. Fred Licciardi Medical Doctor Posted Tue 28 Apr 2009 1:41pm 1 Comment The advantage of a day 5 blastocyst transfer has to do with selection.

Just Before Blastocyst: The Morlula by Dr. Fred Licciardi Medical Doctor Posted Tue 28 Apr 2009 1:41pm So what happens after day 3? Two days later we would like it to be a blastocyst.

Here it’s difficult to see the borders of the cells, so the morula looks like one big ... Read on »

Blastocysts have higher implantation rates as they are "further developed". We had been told in the operating ... Read on »
Is a blastocyst transfer better than a Day 3 transfer by Dr. Aniruddha M. Medical Doctor Posted Fri 11 Jun 2010 5:12am One of the commonest question patients ask me is whether they should choose a Day 3 transfer or a Day 5 ( blastocyst ) transfer .
