Frozen Embryo Transfer Process

 
FROZEN EMBRYO TRANSFER
 

We offer frozen embryo transfer at our fertility centers in Beverly Hills and Sherman Oaks to allow you the chance of conception when the time is right for you. When more eggs are retrieved than needed, we can freeze them for future use (cryopreservation). Embryos can be frozen at any stage between day one and day six after egg retrieval and can be stored for years. The patient can then return to the Center for Reproductive Health & Gynecology where Dr. Najmabadi and our team can perform a frozen embryo transfer, increasing the opportunity to conceive after a single egg procedure. 

 

 

 

The Frozen Embryo Transfer Process

The frozen embryo transfer process is less invasive than standard egg collection. Frozen embryo transfer can be done during your natural cycle, or we may need to control your cycle with medication depending on whether we can monitor the time of your natural ovulation. The embryos are placed into your uterus at the time of ovulation and the when the thickness of the endometrium (lining of your uterus) is right.
Before the frozen embryo transfer can be performed, your embryos will need to be thawed so the age of the embryos corresponds to the age of your uterine lining. The timing of frozen embryo transfer usually depends on the stage at which the embryos were frozen.
Not all embryos survive the cryopreservation process. Before the frozen embryo transfer, we will evaluate your embryos to make sure they are ready for transfer. If they are, then the frozen embryo transfer can go forward.
During the procedure a catheter is inserted through the cervix and the embryos are placed into the uterus. The frozen embryo transfer usually takes about 15 minutes.

Frozen Embryo Transfer Success Rate

The success rate of frozen embryo transfer is almost as successful as standard In vitro fertilization (IVF). Success depends on several factors, including the number and quality of embryos, your age, and the cause of infertility.
