One of the essential parts of the in vitro fertilization process is transferring the fertilized embryo. It helps to know what to expect, along with some of the risks and precautions to keep in mind. Here is some information on how the embryo transfers process works and for whom embryo transfers are an option.
Fresh and Frozen Embryo Transfers: An embryo transfer is the final step of the In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) process. During a fresh transfer, the embryo is transferred back into the uterus without ever being frozen. A frozen embryo transfer (FET) is a cycle in which frozen embryos from a previous IVF or donor egg cycle are thawed and then transferred.
