Chromosomal Screening (PGD) on Blastocyst Embryos w/ Fresh Transfer

Q&A with the Experts


five-day-blastoQ: Is it possible to do chromosomal screening on a Day 5 embryo (blastocyst) and still be able to transfer in a fresh IVF cycle?

A: Yes, some clinics can biopsy the embryo for preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) or comprehensive chromosomal screening (CSS) on Day 5 and complete the screening in time for a fresh transfer on the morning of Day 6. This is true in 2013 and will only become more available in the coming years. Also keep in mind that there may be advantages to freezing the embryo and transferring in a frozen embryo transfer. We talked about all of this in the Creating a Family show on Increasing Success with IVF.
