Fertilisation and Embryo Culture

Depending on the concentration, motility and morphology of the sperm, the doctor will decide whether to go with classic IVF or ICSI. Either methods chosen does not affect the price of the treatment.

After the eggs are inseminated, they are incubated overnight and fertilization is assessed the following morning. Your dedicated coordinator will contact you the next morning to inform you about the progress and fertilization rate.

Over the next few days the embryos will be incubated and allowed to develop. Depending on their development, the embryologists and the doctor will inform you when it is best to perform the embryo transfer, it could be on day-3 or day-5.

If the cycle involves pre-implantation genetic testing (PGT), the embryos are cultured to day-5 and any blastocysts that develop are biopsied and frozen. For more information on PGT, please refer to our PGT page where we have recently updated our methodology.
