Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET)
Frozen embryo transfer (FET) is the process of completing an IVF cycle using the excess frozen embryos from a previous IVF cycle. You can have a FET cycle following an unsuccessful IVF attempt or after a successful pregnancy and delivery. The benefit of a frozen embryo transfer cycle is that you can have 1 or more attempts at pregnancy without having to harvest new eggs from another IVF cycle. Additional benefits include reduced cost, fewer preparatory appointments and assurance of high-quality embryos for implantation.
IVF using frozen embryos has almost the same rate of success as fresh embryo transfer. The staff at the Viera Fertility Center is happy to discuss any questions you may have on the use of frozen embryos.
