Human Oocyte to Blastocyst

Morphology of human oocytes and embryos.

  • GV - germinal vesicle oocyte (GV)
  • MI - metaphase I oocyte
  • MII - metaphase II oocyte
  • D2 - (day 2) 4-cell embryo
  • D3 - (day 3) 8-cell embryo
  • D5 - (day 5) blastocyst
MII oocytes had been matured in vitro after donation at GV stage. D2, D3, D5 embryos were all matured in vitro.
