More and more frequently, it is recommended that only one embryo is transferred during fertility treatment (single embryo transfer). Ideally, this would be the embryo most likely to lead to pregnancy. Single embryo transfer can reduce health risks (for example multiple pregnancies) for both mother and child.
With the help of the time-lapse procedure, it is easier to identify the “best” embryo. Studies show that this can increase the pregnancy rate by approximately 5-10% and at the same time reduce the rate of miscarriage by about 5%. (Time-lapse culture with morpho kinetic embryo selection improves pregnancy and live birth chances and reduces early pregnancy loss: a meta-analysis; C. Pribenszky , A. Nilselid , M. Montag ; Reprod Biomed Online. 2017).
In offering the time-lapse procedure, we are taking a step further on the way to individual, less
intrusive and qualitatively better fertility treatment.
