In brief: Need more space

to give the full answer. Short answer: they're the same, it depends on the embryo number and embryo quality.
Day 5 allows transfer of fewer embryos (less risk of multiples) while keeping rates at the sam level. Could write a book about this, please consult with your MD or could do an online consult full details. Your doc is always first choice! Good wishes.
