Everything You Need To Know About Fresh Vs Frozen Embryo Transfers
Does fresh or frozen have a higher success rate? Which is more cost effective? Find out.
Why isn’t every embryo transfer cycle a fresh one? Do transfers require anaesthetic? Does fresh or frozen have a higher success rate? Read on for frozen embryo transfer tips and more.
If you have been fortunate enough during an IVF cycle to have several eggs retrieved, then fertilised with sperm and good quality embryos created, the outcome will be spare embryos that you can choose to freeze for future use.
Some ask why isn’t every embryo transfer cycle a fresh one and isn’t that a wiser option? The reality is that when women undertake an IVF cycle, the aim is to retrieve as many good-quality eggs as possible to optimise the chance of a successful pregnancy.
If you only relied on one egg or embryo per cycle, sadly not every egg will fertilise or go on to form a good-quality embryo. Having some spare eggs to fertilise and embryos to freeze is fortunate and extends your pregnancy potential.
