Which is the least advanced embryo to transfer?
According to the Gardner grading system, each blastocyst embryo is assigned 3 separate quality scores: 2. So the least advanced blastocyst would be 1CC, and the most would be 5AA. However it’s generally preferred to do embryo transfer before reaching level 5 (which means it’s already hatching).
