The frozen embryo transfer cycle is a process that is used to help a woman become pregnant.
To help a woman get pregnant using the frozen embryo transfer cycle it uses embryos (fertilized eggs) that have been frozen.
During the FET cycle, your embryos are thawed and placed into your uterus.
This is done at a time in your menstrual cycle that best supports a pregnancy.
A FET cycle will take approximately 6 to 8 weeks.
A cycle typically begins with an injection Prostap on approximately day 21 of your cycle to suppress the normal ovarian cycle.
Frozen blastocyst transfers should have hatching and the beginning of implantation by about 1-3 days after the FET.
Many fertility specialists and treatment providers indicate that frozen embryo transfers provide a higher pregnancy success rate than using fresh embryos during assisted reproductive technology.
During a successful pregnancy, you will notice pregnancy symptoms around two weeks after embryo transfer.
Typically, the symptoms will pass after a few months, so you can continue to enjoy your pregnancy.
Can an embryo split into twins?
The short answer is yes, but the chances are quite small. Just like with any pregnancy, a twin pregnancy can still happen. In IVF, the chance of this outcome is approximately one out of 100 transfers.
Human blastocysts should hatch from the shell and begin to implant 1-2 days after day 5 IVF blastocyst transfer. In a natural situation (not IVF), the blastocyst should hatch and implant at the same time – about 6 to 10 days after ovulation.
