CONCLUSION: We believe that blastocyst transfer is a valuable tool that has enabled IVF programs to more accurately select the embryos with the highest potential for implantation [13] allowing for a good pregnancy rate while avoiding high order multiple gestations.[14] In our program, we offer blastocyst transfer to patients of any age[15] if they have more than 3 eight cell embryos.

Blastocyst Stage Cryopreservation: Blastocyst freezing has three major rationales: (1) the superiority of blastocyst-stage over earlier stage freezing in terms of implantation per thawed embryos which improves the overall expectations for cryopreservation programmes; (2) maximizing the cumulative pregnancy rates per oocyte retrieval; and (3) extended in-vitro culture of human embryos is becoming more common, encouraging the routine use of blastocyst transfer in IVF programs which is of reduced chances for multiple pregnancies (68).
