What is the process of a frozen embryo transfer?
The procedure for preparation for embryo transfer can be different, both with the stimulation component of endometrial preparation and without, only with monitoring the stages of endometrial development in the IVF cycle.
The procedure is quite simple, on the appropriate day of the FET normal cycle specified by the doctor, the patient is invited to the clinic. An hour before that, embryologists begin to thaw the embryo or several for the frozen transfer procedure. At this point, the genetic testing on the embryos has been performed if you ordered it.
The procedure itself takes place without anesthesia. The thawing process is under the close supervision of embryologists.
Embryos for transfer are all checked by a special witness system. This takes away all the risks of transferring someone else's genetic material. After the procedure, our doctors recommend staying away from physical activities as well as staying in the ward for approximately 2 hours. After that, the patient needs to wait for the result for 2 weeks and do a blood HCG test.
