    What happens to an embryo (3DT and 5DT)
    « Reply #1 on: 24/09/13, 01:52 »
    What Happens After an Embryo Transfer?
    Once you complete your embryo transfer, you will have approximately 1 weeks to wait before a pregnancy can be detected. The following tables outline an approximate timeline for what happens during a successful pregnancy after a 3-day transfer (3dt) and a 5-day transfer (5dt).

    3-Day Transfer
    Days Past
    Transfer (DPT)    Embryo Development
     One   The embryo continues to grow and develop, turning from a 6-8 cell embryo into a morula
     Two   The cells of the morula continue to divide, developing into a blastocyst
     Three   The blastocyst begins to hatch out of its shell
     Four   The blastocyst continues to hatch out of its shell and begins to attach itself to the uterus
     Five   The blastocyst attaches deeper into the uterine lining, beginning implantation
     Six   Implantation continues
     Seven   Implantation is complete, cells that will eventually become the placenta and fetus have begun to develop
     Eight   Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) starts to enter the blood stream
     Nine   Fetal development continues and hCG continues to be secreted
     Ten   Fetal development continues and hCG continues to be secreted 
     Eleven   Levels of hCG are now high enough to detect a pregnancy
     

    5-Day Transfer
    Days Past
    Transfer (DPT)   Embryo Development
    One   The blastocyst begins to hatch out of its shell
    Two   The blastocyst continues to hatch out of its shell and begins to attach itself to the uterus
    Three   The blastocyst attaches deeper into the uterine lining, beginning implantation
    Four   Implantation continues
    Five   Implantation is complete, cells that will eventually become the placenta and fetus have begun to develop
    Six   Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) starts to enter the blood stream
    Seven   Fetal development continues and hCG continues to be secreted
    Eight   Fetal development continues and hCG continues to be secreted
    Nine   Levels of hCG are now high enough to detect a pregnancy
