The embryos were classified as GQEs or PQEs according to specific criteria.
The results showed that 33.1% of embryos (476/1 437) became GQEs and 66.9% (961/1 437) PQEs on day 2.
Of the remaining embryos, 31.0% (445/1 437) were GQEs and 52.3% (752/1 437) were PQEs on day 3.
There was a significant change in the percentage of GQEs from day 2 to day 3 (33.4% to 39.2%, p = 0.002 in the P-pattern group; 29.5% to 35.2%, p = 0.014 in the testicular sperm group).
Results showed that 43.9% of embryos (424/965) became GQEs and 56.1% (541/965) PQEs on day 2.
Of the remaining embryos, 35.2% (340/965) were GQEs and 45.4% (438/965) were PQEs on day 3.
There was no significant change from day 2 to day 3 in GQEs in the P-pattern group (42.1% to 49.1%, p = 0.058), the G-pattern group (42.5% to 42.2%, p = 0.932) and the N-pattern group (46.2% to 42.3%, p = 1.00) (Fig.
