From Oocytes to Preimplantation Embryos


The European Society for Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) Special Interest Group on Embryology is proud to announce the publication of the Atlas of Human Embryology: from Oocytes to Preimplantation Embryos.

Its publication has been entirely supported by ESHRE as a free-to-view document to give access to everybody with an interest in embryology.

The Atlas includes 397 figures grouped in four chapters: oocytes, pronucleate oocytes, zygotes, embryos and blastocysts.

Each chapter has a brief introduction and is divided in subheadings, which are described by a short text and by a series of images whose features are detailed in a legend and, when needed, by specific diagrams.

Reference to implantation rates is made whenever available. Links to the atlas can be found here.
