Key Points

Day3 x Day 5 in Older Women+ - Course ID:145 -
SEP236+ [748]
This course details publications looking at the treatment option in older women with few embryos. One option is to transfer as cleavage stage embryos or as blastocysts. To transfer early with the embryos currently available and maybe cryopreserve some embryos or to delay until day 5 where you may either know which is the best embryo to transfer or have no viable embryos to transfer at all.
