Frozen Embryo Transfer
Frozen embryos are fertilized eggs that have been cryopreserved (frozen). A frozen embryo transfer refers to the thawing and transferring of the embryo into the uterus. Frozen embryo transfer allows you to store your embryos in a special freezing chamber until you are ready to try fertility treatments again or if you decide to conceive another child.
Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET) is is often highly successful in women who have ovulation disorders and for couples that have already undergone previous IVF procedures.
