Frozen Embryo Transfer Plan
Embryo cryopreservation permits selected embryos, not immediately returned to a woman’s uterus, to be frozen for the couple’s later use. When thawed at a later date, these embryos can be placed in the uterus with little or no medication in advance. This is known as a frozen embryo transfer (FET). The babies born after cryopreservation are just as healthy as babies conceived spontaneously.
We strive to provide our patients with numerous options at The Reproductive Institute of South Texas, including cryopreservation and frozen embryo transfer. If you are considering in vitro fertilization, these options may be for you. Embryo cryopreservation allows you to preserve your embryos for later use without any impact on the chance of future successful conception. If you are career-minded, want to focus on personal interests, or are simply not at a point in your life to have a child, embryo cryopreservation allows you to delay the process.
