what is the longest amount of time and embryo can survive being cooled and shipped ? And what would be the recomended day to flush if yor ETA was greater than 16 hours - would you flush on day 6 or 7 ?
There have been recorded incidents of successfully transferred embryos that have been 3 days in transit. It wasn't intended that it was a 3-day transit period, but the couriers lost the shipments! I certainly wouldn't recommend it as a matter of routine though!!!
A 6 or 7 day embryo doesn't really make any difference as far as shipping is concerned, but it will probably be more successful to collect on day 7 than day 6.
