Through In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) technology, only quality embryos are transferred directly to the woman’s uterus for hopeful implantation into her uterine lining. After the predetermined number of quality embryos have been transferred to the woman’s uterus, any excess quality embryos may be cryopreserved for future Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET) procedures.
Frozen Embryo Transfer Benefits
The success of a healthy pregnancy achieved through the FET process has increased substantially in recent years. This success has made FETs an increasingly popular option to consider before considering a subsequent fresh IVF cycle. With FET, couples can increase their chance of pregnancy per fresh egg retrieval and ultimately save money by avoiding the expense of another fresh IVF cycle.
Frozen Embryo Transfer Procedure
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.
Contemplating a Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET)
Many couples opt to cryopreserve their excess embryos after a fresh IVF cycle to increase their chances of conceiving in the future. These couples want to use FET technology to avoid the expense and physical strain of undergoing another fresh IVF cycle. These couple can then undergo future FETs in case the fresh IVF cycle fails. If the fresh IVF cycle is successful, the couple can undergo a FET in the future when they decide to have more children.
