Embryo Grading: Grade 3

When embryo grading for In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF), one can find grade 3 amongst all of the other three grades. A couple might find themselves with a mixture, or mainly a specific one grade or another. The embryos that develop after fertilization of the egg cell by the sperm are closely watched by Continue Reading

Embryo Grading: Grade 2

Embryo grading during the process of In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is done to ensure that the best quality embryos are selected for transfer to the uterus. Obviously, Grade 1 embryos are the best quality, but Grade 2 embryos are also good. Considering that the aim now is to try and achieve singleton ... Continue Reading

Embryo Grading: Factors Involved with Selection for Transfer

Embryo grading is a vital step during the process of In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF). It involves segregating, assessing and grading the spare or supernumerary embryos produced during the IVF. The grading of the supernumerary embryos ensures that good quality embryos are isolated to be used in embryo t ... Continue Reading

Embryo Grading: Grade 4

In most of the systems used in embryo grading, Grade 4 is the lowest score. In other words, it is the score given to the embryos of the poorest quality. These are the embryos which have less of a chance of progressing on to implantation and pregnancy. They occur in the vast majority of In-Vitro Fert ... Continue Reading

Embryo Grading: Grade 1

In the process of In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF), embryo grading is performed, assessing the quality of the embryos– with Grade 1 generally being the best quality, and going down to Grade 4. Some centers do have different grading systems, but this is the most universally used. Development of the Emb ... Continue Reading
