Frozen Embryo Transfer Process and Precautions

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.

Egg retrieval is the first step in IVF, where the mother’s eggs are extracted from her ovaries, after she takes hormone-inducing medications, to fertilize them in a lab with sperm. The resultant embryos are inserted back into the uterus for implantation.
