This process provides patients with a "back-up" plan should the initial fresh embryo transfer not result in a pregnancy, at a much lower cost than starting IVF all over again and often with few medicines.
Embryo transfer of frozen embryos allow multiple pregnancies after just one cycle of ovarian stimulation.
Embryos can be frozen at any stage of development during the IVF process.
We carefully assess embryo development so as increase the chances of a successful pregnancy.
Embryos tolerate freezing very well and we expect over 90% of embryos to survive the process.
Pregnancy rates with frozen/thawed embryos are as good as pregnancy rates for embryos that were transferred fresh without ever being frozen.
