Patients aged 35-37 years should first consider single-embryo transfer, and patients aged 38-40 years should receive single-blastocyst embryo transfers if euploid embryos are available, but no more than three cleavage-stage embryos or two blastocysts.
Influence of group embryo culture strategies on the blastocyst development and pregnancy outcome.
Under stringent culture conditions, including the presence of amino acids, embryos can be cultured to the blastocyst stage in the absence of protein [15].
