This study tests the hypothesis that controlled ovarian stimulation impairs endometrial receptivity in normal responders.
The purpose of this study is to determine if blastocyst transfers in cycles of post-thaw extended culture (PTEC) have different efficacy than transfers of fresh blastocysts in patients with expected normal response to ovarian stimulation.
Multiple studies have found altered endometrial histology and gene expression following controlled ovarian stimulation.
PTEC cycles require cryopreservation of the entire 2pn oocyte cohort in the prior cycle. Once thawed, the embryos are cultured to the blastocyst stage before transfer.
In typical cycles using frozen-thawed embryos, many thawed embryos that appear to survive do not actually resume and continue development. PTEC ensures the transfer of embryos that resumed development and continued developing at least to the blastocyst stage (4-5 days post-thaw).
The viability of a blastocyst in a PTEC cycle has been shown to be on par with that of a fresh blastocyst. Therefore, comparing outcomes of blastocyst transfers in PTEC cycles with that in fresh autologous cycles allows the potential endometrial impact of controlled ovarian stimulation to be assessed.

Does extended culture to the blastocyst stage affect singleton birthweight after either fresh or vitrified-warmed embryo transfer?
Elective frozen-embryo transfer has been shown to result in a higher live-birth rate than fresh-embryo transfer among anovulatory women with the polycystic ovary syndrome. It is uncertain whether froz...

A medical-surgical specialty concerned with the morphology, physiology, biochemistry, and pathology of reproduction in man and other animals, and on the biological, medical, and veterinary problems of fertility and lactation. It includes ovulation induction, diagnosis of infertility and recurrent pregnancy loss, and assisted reproductive technologies such as embryo transfer, in vitro fertilization, and intrafallopian transfer of zygotes.

A post-MORULA preimplantation mammalian embryo that develops from a 32-cell stage into a fluid-filled hollow ball of over a hundred cells. A blastocyst has two distinctive tissues. The outer layer of trophoblasts gives rise to extra-embryonic tissues. The inner cell mass gives rise to the embryonic disc and eventual embryo proper.
Delay in the attachment and implantation of BLASTOCYST to the uterine ENDOMETRIUM. The blastocyst remains unattached beyond the normal duration thus delaying embryonic development.
The transfer of mammalian embryos from an in vivo or in vitro environment to a suitable host to improve pregnancy or gestational outcome in human or animal. In human fertility treatment programs, preimplantation embryos ranging from the 4-cell stage to the blastocyst stage are transferred to the uterine cavity between 3-5 days after FERTILIZATION IN VITRO.
