FET Q

I have a question about FET's. I have been doing some research abotu FET's and they are saying for an FET they would like to have atleast 3 FET's for transfer. Is this the norm?

How does the FET's work? Do they test thaw them and see if they make it to thaw before your transfer? What percentage normally make it to thaw? Do you just go in for your transfer and they tell you if they made it to thaw or not? That would be devestating to be sceduled for a transfer to find out that you have no embies to transfer.

Can you help be get a better understanding Doc? :)

Your questions have very clinic specific answers. We transfer 2 embryos, eve in an FET cycle. Our freeze thaw survival rate is about 90%. The process of thawing embryos is comlpex, and takes a few hours. A good embtyologist can look at embryos he has thawed, and know if they survived. That does not guarantee pregnancy anymore than a norma appearing fresh embryo can guarantee pregnancy.

Thank you for your reply Doc-

Is it true that FET is less likely to end in a pg simply because they have been frozen, and the quality changes during the thaw and that Fresh is better?

WE do not find a significantly lower pregnancy rate with frozen thawed embryos. If there is a difference, it is more related to the fact that we select the best looking ones for fresh transfer.
