Embryo Transfer

What is Embryo Transfer?

Embryo transfer in Mexico is a procedure that follows in vitro fertilization (IVF) and is often considered the simplest and final step of the IVF treatment. The objective of embryo transfer is to simplify conception succeeding fertilization from the IVF procedure.

The difference between an embryo transfer and a blastocyst transfer during the IVF process is the day on which it takes place.

Embryo transfer takes place as the cells are still dividing— 2-3 days after the egg is fertilized.

A blastocyst transfer takes place after the fertilization to enhance the chances of a successful implantation— 5-6 days after fertilization.

Embryo Transfer Procedure

Embryo transfer in Mexico is prepared in state-of-the-art laboratories, capable of producing high quality blastocysts. The embryo transfer takes place 2-3 days after the egg collection and the fertilization of the egg with the chosen sperm.

During this time the embryo has divided into either 4 or 8 cells dependent on whether there has been a 2 or 3 day wait. IVF Clinics in Mexico offer patients the option of waiting for 5-6 days so that the embryos reach the blastocyst stage.

During the blastocyst stage, the number of cells reaches more than 32 and it can aid in determining which embryos are stronger and have a better chance of a successful implantation.

A predetermined number of embryos are then loaded into a fine transfer catheter that passes through the vagina and cervix, into the uterus. The embryos are deposited from the catheter into the uterus.

IVF experts in Puerto Vallarta are leading expert in this field, and embrace a remarkable amount of involvement with embryo culture.

Risks and Side Effects of Embryo Transfer
