The frozen embryo transfer works in almost the same way as the fresh embryo transfer. The only difference being that the embryos which have been created and frozen need to be thawed before use.
Many cycles of IVF/ICSI will result in the freezing of embryos. There are a number of different reasons for this. In modern fertility treatment the freezing of all of the embryos is becoming more common. If you have embryos frozen, we will plan a frozen embryo transfer when you wish to become pregnant.
Our complete packages include everything you need with no hidden costs.
Any patient, no matter the amount of time between embryo freezing and thawing, can expect nearly the same potential for success as they experienced with the fresh IVF cycle that the frozen embryos came from. In some cases, an FET cycle can result in a higher success rate than those of a fresh cycle because of the opportunity to optimize the lining of the uterus before implantation.
The longest time a human embryo has been stored is around 30 years, but once embryos have been frozen, they can be stored indefinitely. Having your embryos frozen gives you many opportunities to grow your family in the future.
