Frozen embryo replacement cycles
Sometimes IVF or ICSI treatment results in the creation of more embryos than can be replaced at any one time in to the womb. We may recommend that spare embryos if good quality are frozen for use in the future without the need to go through a further fresh stimulation cycle again.
Embryos may be transferred in either of the protocols below:-
- In a natural cycle without drugs but monitoring your ovulation using urine ovulation strips.
- In a drug assisted cycle after preparation of ovaries and womb lining with a combination of injections, hormone patches and pessaries.
