    Default 6 cell Embie on Day 2

    Hi

    I was wondering if anyone knew if a 6 cell on day 2 is still ok? everywhere I read its between 2 and 4 cell but I have 2 at 6 cell and 1 at 2 cell.

    Thanks TIA

    Hi Elkalemi

    I had a day 2 6 cell embryo frozen last cycle and researched trying to find out if it was necessarily a bad thing. I found research that supported both positions that it can indicate chromosomal abnormality and the embryo will fatigue early and have difficulty implanting or continuing, however, I also read some more recent research that suggests that early developing embryos are only problematic if they don't get past the day 3 stage, but if they do, they can sometimes be better than normally progressing embryos at Day 5. You can imagine how stoked I was to read that. But, essentially, it will be a wait and see. I hope all goes well for you. Good luck.

    Wish

    I think it's a wait and see too. My IVF I had 3 cells at day 3 and didn't end well but still worth a chance according to the embryologists.
