Embryo grading is a major component in the success of in vitro fertilization. Selecting the highest quality embryos increases the chance they will survive and thrive during the rapid stages of development that occur shortly after fertilization, as well was when they are transferred to your uterine lining.
Embryos are graded by their stage and by how they appear under a microscope. Your doctor will assign your embryos a grade—based on cell symmetry, fragmentation, inner cell mass quality and outer layer blastocyst quality —in the days leading up to your embryo transfer.
