IVF treatments highly motivate infertility patients to achieve pregnancy. The decades ago worldwide the researchers performed day 2 or day 3 transfers in order to increase the pregnancy success rate. The embryologists selected randomly the 3-4embryos on the basis of cleavage. So it often easily leads to multiple pregnancy (triplet or quadruplet) and it reaches at high risk of life threatening premature newborn. Slowly the researchers were moved on extending culture from day 3 to day 5, blastocyst stage to avoid the risk of multiple pregnancy. Then it was recognised as the survival of good quality embryos percentage is higher to the fifth or sixth day of post insemination. Likely, the selection of one or two good embryos is based on the formation of blastocyst. Ultimately it leads to higher pregnancy rate. To optimise the success rate the grading and selection of embryos are eventually needed. The advantage of blastocyst transfer includes better synchronisation between endometrium lining and the blastocyst. The endometrium is the inner line of the uterus. Every month of the female menstrual cycle the endometrium size will be changing their thickness. The progesterone and oestrogen plays a major role for the endometrium thickness. The growth and shedding of the endometrium through menstruation cycle the pregnancy does not occur. The ultrasound monitoring is necessary for the measurement of the endometrium line. The endometrium thickness is necessary and this acts as host of the embryo. The aim of this study was to compare between the conventional blastocyst transfer and blastocyst transfer after ERA biopsy.
