What is Extended Culture Mexico?

Extended Culture Mexico helps us to identify which of your embryos are most suitable for transfer. It is a useful technique if you’ve produced good quality embryos in a previous treatment cycle, but not achieved a pregnancy.

How Does it Work

A physician will collect a small sample of the patient’s endometrium immediately before the menstrual period and prior to the In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) cycle. Endometrial scratch biopsy Mexico is a transitory, outpatient procedure that does not require sedation. The collection of endometrial cells are treated, purified and frozen in an advanced embryology laboratory. Each cell is cautiously thawed prior to the egg retrieval.

After undergoing the Invitro Fertilization (IVF) Cycle and embryo development has occurred, the cultured cells are placed in the petri dish with the embryo(s) where they will support embryonic development until the embryo transfer or cryopreservation takes place. intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) Mexico is performed by an embryologist, who surgically inserts one sperm into each egg.

The culture can be extended to 5-6 days (blastocyst stage) after oocyte collection. A blastocyst is an embryo that consists of more than 100 cells. In the uterus, the blastocyst starts to attach to the uterine lining in a process known as implantation. A higher implantation rate has been observed following transfer of blastocysts from the laboratory.

Advantages of Extended Culture Mexico

  • There is better synchronization between Endometrial preparation and embryo development.
  • With extended culture it is possible to choose embryos showing more promising development.
  • Less embryos to transfer: on day 2-3: 3 embryos, on day 5-6: 1 or 2 embryos to transfer.
