Don’t Put Too Much Stock in Embryo Grading

Frozen embryos are like… a box of chocolates? With apologies to Forrest Gump, there’s actually some truth to the notion.

When it comes to infertility treatment like IVF, there can be a tendency for some patients to place too much value on the grades of their embryos. Don’t get us wrong- embryo grading has its place. But, like Forrest’s proverbial box of chocolates, you never know for sure what you’re going to get when it comes to frozen embryos. As Southeastern Fertility Co-Director Dr. John Gordon and IVF Coordinator Lynda McCollum explain when you click the video link below, embryos with poor grades can become beautiful babies.
