Embryo freezing and frozen embryo transfer
Often after a cycle of IVF or ICSI, there are a number of successfully fertilised embryos that we can freeze and store for your future use.
Whether your cycle was successful or unsuccessful, frozen embryo transfer gives you another chance of pregnancy from the initial cycle.
There are a number of benefits of using frozen embryo transfer: it costs less than going through the process from the beginning again, and it also takes less time. Importantly, there is no risk associated with the initial medication and procedures that you have already been through as these do not need to be repeated.
At the Centre for Reproductive and Genetic Health, we use a cryopreservation technique called vitrification to freeze embryos, a technique which offers our patients almost the same pregnancy success rate as using fresh embryos.
