If you have had one failed IVF cycle or more, your doctor might recommend that you have Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET). The first step is to have some of your eggs collected during your IVF treatment and frozen. You’ve already got some frozen eggs? Good. Now, the next step is for the embryologists to thaw the eggs and fertilise them with some of your husband’s sperm in the laboratory. You don’t have to worry about this at all. The fertilised eggs will grow into embryos which are frozen to keep them safe and healthy. They are now called Frozen Embryos.
When you are ready, your embryos are carefully thawed and transferred into your womb with a tube called a catheter. The procedure is not painful and you do not need an anaesthetic. After 2 weeks, the doctor will take a blood test to see if you are pregnant.
Are you wondering if FET is safe? Absolutely. The procedure was developed by international scientists and doctors and is in use all over the world with a high success rate. The process is strictly monitored and you can trust us to be thorough and to treat your embryo(s) with the utmost care.
How long will it take? Your doctor will check your womb and give you medication for two weeks before you have the transfer. Your frozen embryos will be checked and then, you have the FET.
