What is embryo transfer?

Embryo transfer is a key step in assisted reproduction, where fertilized eggs (embryos) are implanted into a woman's uterus with the aim of starting a pregnancy. This procedure is often used in conjunction with In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), where egg fertilization happens outside the body.

Fresh vs. Frozen Embryos:

Embryos used for transfer can be either:

Fresh: Created from eggs fertilized during the current menstrual cycle.
Ready to grow your family? Consider using previously frozen embryos. These embryos, carefully preserved through a process called cryopreservation, offer a safe and effective option for achieving pregnancy. Studies have shown no increased risk of birth defects associated with using frozen embryos compared to fresh embryos.

The Process at Our Clinic:

Fertilization Updates: You'll receive updates on how your eggs are fertilizing.
Transfer Timing: Transfers typically occur on day 4 after egg retrieval (day 5 for blastocyst transfers).
Anesthesia: Depending on your needs, local or general anesthesia may be used.
Embryo Selection: The best quality embryos are chosen for transfer after careful evaluation.
Recovery: After a short recovery period, you'll be discharged.
Pregnancy Test: A test is conducted 19 days after the procedure, regardless of any uterine bleeding.
