Frozen Embryo Transfer at Fertility Institute of Texas

Frozen embryo transfer: a cost-saving option for patients

Some IVF cycles result in embryos that are not initially transferred — either because the embryos were undergoing testing or because there were excess embryos after the initial transfer. These embryos that are cryopreserved can be warmed and then transferred into a woman’s uterus after it is prepared with certain medications to make it a hospitable environment for a developing baby.

Advantages of frozen embryo transfer

Babies born from the cryopreserved embryos maintain better chances of success (compared to embryos created at a higher age) and lower chances of miscarriage and birth defects, regardless of the advancing age of the mother. 95% of embryos survive the freeze and thaw process.

Dr. Hudson and her team at Fertility Institute of Texas know that infertility is a highly personal and emotional journey, and wants to guide you through it to a successful pregnancy. Call today to discuss your options.
