The grade A embryo myth

Many patients are thrilled when their doctor tells them, "Hey, we put top quality grade an embryos class one embryos back inside you and of course, you're going to get pregnant," but when the cycle fails, they come to terms with reality and wonder what went wrong and why this top quality grade A embryo didn't develop into a baby.

The truth is that there is no such thing as a grade A embryo. To be more precise, you must identify the number of cells an embryo contains before calling it a grade A embryo. You must specify the grade with the number of cells if the embryo is a day three embryo with eight cells rather than just grade A.

Similarly, it's crucial to grade the blastocyst if one exists based on whether it has enlarged, hatched, or has a cavity. Now, these may seem like technicalities, but if your doctor is withholding this information from you, it implies he is lying to you, and you should be very concerned. For this reason, it is no longer sufficient to merely accept that the doctor put a grade A embryo back.

You must act as a responsible patient and insist that the doctor provide you with photos of your embryos so you can verify if they are in fact high-quality embryos or not.

The good news is that it's simple to do this because there are so many online embryo atlases, making it simple to compare how your embryo appears to an ideal embryo. Remember that if you want to have a baby, you can't just leave everything up to the doctor; you also need to be an informed IVF patient.
