Frozen Embryo Transfer

In the following video Women & Infants’ Fertility Center nurse Diane Sharkey, BSN, RN, reviews the typical process for a frozen embryo transfer (FET) after an IVF cycle. FETs often require several stages of testing to gauge embryo health and the best time to transfer the embryo(s) into the uterus. Women take medication to prepare for an FET, including estrogen and progesterone.

Our fertility specialists often recommend transferring as few embryos as possible into a woman’s uterus, ideally just one in elective single embryo transfer (eSET). This lowers the risk of a multiple pregnancy of twins or more, which can cause health complications for the mother and child. Any remaining embryos can be cryopreserved for future FETs, saving patients money and time. For more information on this or related services, please contact us or request an appointment.
