Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET)
Depending upon your history, a few studies may need to be updated including lab studies, cervical cultures, a pap smear and hysteroscopy. Once the workup is complete, you will be started on an oral medication called Estrace (estradiol).
Estrace will develop your uterine lining and prepare it for implantation. Once you have been on the Estrace for about one week, we will confirm that your uterine lining is ready and we will instruct you to start your progesterone medication. Your embryo transfer will be 5 days after the start of your progesterone. After your embryo transfer, you will remain on your Estrace and progesterone and follow up with the office for a hormone study to confirm no change needs to be made to your medication regimen. Your pregnancy test will be approximately 10 days after your embryo transfer.
Our dedicated and knowledgeable IVF team will guide you through the entire ART/IVF process to ensure that you have the best possible experience. To find out more information on proceeding with an FET cycle, please contact our IVF team to discuss any questions you may have.
