We Recently had a very poor blastocyst conversion rate for one of our patient, in her 2 cycles.

1st cylce : Only 2 became blastocysts out of 12 Embryos (10 top quality Embryos on day 3)

2nd cycle : Only 2 became blastocysts out of 20 Embryos (14 top quality Embryos on day 3)

Interestingly Blastocysts form both cycles  looked very identical.

Have attached pictures.

The fertilisation Rate was excellent.

The embryos looke good till day 3. But then got arrested.

Any body had such experience?

Sperm has a role?

Kindly share your experient.

Thank you,

19. Blastocyst quantity, pregnancy rate

20 April 2015 by Alex

Dear colleagues,

we changed culture medium in our lab. The blastocyst formation rate became higher (60-70% top quality), but pregnancy rate reduced. Is it possible that when we have more top quality blastocysts their implantation potential goes down?
