Learn About Blastocyst Culture To Increase Pregnancy Probability
The cycle of life is maintained with the ongoing revolving of life and death. Birthing as a method of creation of life has always been considered as a beautiful but immensely complex process. However, due to different physiological and mental causes, there are times when an individual is unable to create a baby naturally. According to recent reports in print and electronic media, this problem is now reached quite a serious stage, and therefore it is feasible to employ processes that can solve this problem through medical assistance.
What is blastocyst?
According to the literary definition, a blastocyst is the group of cells that can be found in the uterus as the embryo continually divides to generate two types of cells in the resultant blastomere; the trophectoderm, whose main function is to implant in the uterine lining, and the inner cell mass, that gives rise to the fetus. The embryo must be transformed to the blastocyst stage after 5 to 6 days after implantation, as this form of the fertilized cell can attach with the uterine lining and continue the event of pregnancy.
Why do blastocyst culture?
Primarily, the blastocyst culture increases the probability of a successful implantation. In the usual protocol, the fertilized embryo is injected into the uterus after 3 days of fertilization. However, there is no surety that every embryo will have the same functional capability to divide and form the appropriate cell mass. It has been observed that some embryo experiences growth arrest after development in culture media. Performing a blastocyst culture will ensure the selection of the proper embryos which will have the best probability of formation of a full-grown fetus.
The advantages and disadvantages
There are many pointers depending upon which the embryologist will decide upon the best protocol to transfer the fully formed embryos back into the uterus of the mother. The growth pattern and type of the cells, the number of embryos with the proper characters are to be fully determined before the procedure is completed. Some of the advantages of this procedure are;
- The embryo gets a proper interaction with the uterus as the proper cellular stage is being implanted at the correct time interval.
- The blastocyst culture can determine the best and fittest embryo which has the most probability of implantation in the uterus.
Nonetheless, there are some disadvantages also. There is an equal chance of getting no embryo at all for implantation. And also, the charges of the total technique shall increase due to the extra time of external culturing.
