Frozen Embryo Transfers occur when an IVF patient has leftover embryos that have been frozen and are thawed for later transfer. Sometimes they occur after a failed fresh IVF cycle, and sometimes they are used by a family to have more children. Frozen embryos can also be donated to other families whose own infertility struggles have left them with no other option.
Some of the latest research has found that frozen embryos do just as well over time as those thawed and transferred after a short period of time, and that transferring fewer embryos (1-2) is typically just as effective (and safer) as transferring 3 or more.
