- Less Medication
- Less Stress
No high dosages of fertility drugs need to be used to stimulate multiple egg production. Instead, the patient is prescribed estrogen and progesterone to help thicken the lining of her uterus. This prepares the uterine lining for implantation after embryo transfer.
There is no regimen of fertility drug injections, no regular monitoring of egg follicle growth, no anesthesia, and no surgical egg retrieval procedure. FET cycles entail less stress on patients because the stimulation of egg growth and embryo development stages have been completed during the fresh IVF cycle.
More Predictable Cycles
Because only high quality blastocyst-stage embryos are considered for freezing, the chances for pregnancy success through FET is greatly increased. FET cycles are more predictable with fewer cancellations due to complications. Patients can select the day of the FET months in advance and have their cycle initiate date determined in advance.
After undergoing a fresh IVF cycle, only healthy embryos are selected and transferred to the woman’s uterus. Using embryo cryopreservation, Dr. Laurence A. Jacobs and his expert embryology staff have the capability to preserve excess embryos for future FET cycles. A FET cycle is one in which the frozen embryos from a previous fresh IVF – or egg donor cycle – are thawed and then transferred to the mother’s uterus for hopeful implantation.
