Science has come a long way. With the latest developments, infertility has become treatable. If one was unable to conceive a child naturally, now they can with the help of science. Frozen embryo transfer is one of the important supplementary procedures in the treatment of infertility. It’s an IVF treatment where a cryopreserved embryo created in a full IVF cycle is thawed and transferred to the uterus.
For this treatment, the uterine endometrium needs to be prepared for transfer during the previous menstrual cycle. The treatment begins with medications and injections. After the menstrual cycle, hormonal medication is given to prepare the endometrium with hormonal evaluation and serial monitoring by USG. When optimal endometrium is ready, frozen embryo transfer is done by a skilled IVF consultant. It can be done in the natural cycle as well. If all the conditions are optimum, the procedure can be completed in one menstrual cycle.
