Frozen Embryo Transfer

Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET) is a technique in which an embryo that has undergone cryopreservation is placed in a woman's uterus with the intent of creating a pregnancy. This medical technique is not only used in humans but in animals too. The success rate of FET will usually vary from clinic to clinic. To learn more about this process, take a look below at the questions that have been answered by the Experts.

If a woman who is five weeks pregnant with twins begins bleeding and passing small clots after undergoing FET, can it be a miscarriage?

Generally, it would be hard to determine if a woman is having a miscarriage this early in a pregnancy. The reason for this is that in the first few weeks of pregnancy, there usually isn't much developed tissue. If a woman is passing clots, however, there is generally cause for concern. Having said this, passing small clots doesn't necessarily mean that a miscarriage has occurred.

When a miscarriage occurs, there is generally excessive pain and severe cramping that increases as the miscarriage occurs. This pain will usually ease after several clots and tissues have been expelled. For a woman who is five weeks pregnant, a sign of miscarriage would usually be clots similar to the size of a lemon.

While passing clots can be alarming, about 30% of women have bleeding during pregnancy and continue to have a normal pregnancy. Staying hydrated and avoiding all strenuous activity is generally the best approach for a woman in this condition until she can consult with a doctor who can examine the condition with the help of an ultrasound.

What is the total cost of a Frozen Embryo Transfer?

The cost of a Frozen Embryo Transfer usually depends on a couple of factors. The basic cost for the procedure in the U.S. is as follows: medications will usually cost between $2,500 and $4,000 and the cost of implanting the embryo is usually between $1,500 and $2,500. However, the cost may vary from state to state. Once the embryo has been implanted, there are further costs for ultrasounds and medication which may cost upwards of $1500 to $2500.

What is the success rate of Frozen Embryo Transfer?

Generally, the success rate for a Frozen Embryo Transfer will largely depend upon the specialists who handle the case. Many IVF programs have over a 50% rate of live birth rates, especially for women below the age of 35, while other IVF programs have a much lower rate. The outcome can depend to a great extent on the clinic chosen to perform the Frozen Embryo Transfer.

Many couples ask the clinic about the success rate of live birth per embryo transfer to determine which clinic would provide the best possible chance of success.

Is cramping and slight bleeding at six weeks common with FET?

Many normal pregnancies experience mild cramping and bleeding. However, this could also be a possible miscarriage. At six weeks into a pregnancy, an ultrasound would generally be able to determine if a miscarriage has occurred. Furthermore, a heartbeat can usually be seen at the six week mark. Typically, if a heartbeat is detected, the chances of a miscarriage may be considerably low. However, if a heartbeat cannot be found, a miscarriage may have occurred and it is advisable to see a doctor as soon as possible.

While many couples become pregnant the old fashioned way, some couples require medical assistance. Frozen Embryo Transfer is a common form of infertility treatment that many couples choose. However, as is the case with any treatment, many questions may arise as to the safety and success rate of the treatment. If you have questions or concerns regarding a Frozen Embryo Transplant, direct your queries to an Expert now. They can provide medical insights and offer suggestions based on your individual case.

    Hello,
    My last period is 9/4 but ovulated 9/25. I'm currently pregnant. I think I'm 5 weeks 5 days or so. My hcg on 10/13 is 1869 and today is 41,600. My ultrasound on 10/13 shows 4.1 mm sac and a yolk. Today ultrasound shows 6.5 mm sac and yolk no fetal pole. Is this a concern? My doctor said its normal. With my HSG level, shouldn't there be a fetal pole by now? I'm going back in another 7 days.
