Benefits Of Frozen Embryo Transplantation

Frozen Embryo Transplantation 

Frozen Embryo Transplantation is an assisted reproductive technology (ART) where a cryopreserved(which is preserved from previous IVF cycle)embryo is thawed and transplanted to the women's uterus. Having a frozen embryo removes the need to transfer an embryo during the same stimulated ovulation IVF cycle when a woman's eggs are retrieved. This added time, or delayed implantation, increases the chance of a successful pregnancy and birth. Studies from around the world have shown us that In Vitro Fertilization pregnancies following a frozen embryo transfer are more similar to natural conception pregnancies than the fresh embryo transfer cycles.

Below listed are few benefits of Frozen Embryo Transplantation. 


  • Having a frozen embryo can stand as a substitute if your fresh embryo transfer fails. There is no need to repeat the stimulation cycle for the second time.
  • Reduces pregnancy risk of premature birth, low birth weight, and pre-eclampsia.
  • It is an easy procedure that does not require surgery or anesthesia.
  • Less medication.
  • Less stress.
  • Decreased miscarriage rates.
  • We can perform genetic screening that can increase the chances of a successful and healthy pregnancy.
  • Freezing all embryos can reduce the bleak effect of progesterone during pregnancy.
  • Reduces the risk of ovarian hyper stimulation syndrome(OHSS).
  • Patients can decide the day of their transfer months in advance, which will then be used to determine their cycle initiation date.
  • Less expensive method than a fresh IVF cycle.

Success Rates of Frozen Embryo Transfer


Frozen Embryo Transfer has a higher success rate comparing to fresh IVF as it is possible to optimize the lining of the uterus before implantation.
