Understanding Conception and IVF

QUESTION
On MedVacation’s website, you state that IVF treatments with your fertility clinics abroad take, on average, 18 days, if the patient starts her treatments with your clinic on Cycle Day 1.

Embryo Transfer With PGD

When do you transfer embryos with IVF cycles with PDG?

PGD transfer typically happens on Day 5 after egg retrieval. Here is how the process works. The embryo is biopsied on Day 3. On that day, a single cell is removed from the embryo(s). It normally takes 48 hours to have a result for the biopsied embryo. Sometime, it can only take 24 hours for get results and if the embryo is dividing rapidly, than the transfer would take place on Day 4.
