Instead of performing an embryo transfer several days after egg collection, we freeze all your embryos for around 6 weeks, or until we are satisfied that the lining of your womb is prepared and optimised for a thawed embryo transfer. This is also known as a Frozen Embryo Transfer, or elective freeze all cycles. The treatment approach is known as Freeze-all IVF and we are now offering this at all CARE Fertility clinics.
Freeze-all is being used increasingly in IVF clinics as it is proven to be best practice, necessary and effective for several groups of patients and also delivers benefits for all patients. There is emerging evidence that transferring your thawed embryo a few weeks after your eggs are collected, when the treatment medication is no longer in your system, can improve your chances of pregnancy.
