Frozen Embryo Transfer
A frozen embryo transfer (FET) is a cycle in which the frozen seeds from a former fresh IVF or donor egg cycle are melted and then transferred back into the woman's uterus.
Frozen embryos/ seeds remain viable for an inestimable amount of time after the initial halt. Thus it gives you more opportunities for a pregnancy for each hormone stimulation cycle and egg collection. These embryos stored under a temperature of -150 degree Celsius.
On an average FET has a success rate of ~30% and it may vary from the age of woman’s eggs when seeds are frozen. The benefits generally include a lower cost of IVF, comparatively lesser complex treatment, less use of medication yet having success rates similar to the fresh eggs.
A couple may also wish to freeze their embryos, even before they tend to undergo an IVF cycle for future security purposes. All they need to do is to contact us, undergo counseling and diagnosis to have their embryo frozen. Visit First Step IVF for a complete checkup and more information about frozen embryo transfer (FET).
