FET stands for Frozen Embryo Transfer. It involves transferring a cryopreserved embryo to the uterus in IVF treatment. These embryos can either be from a previous IVF cycle or donated by anonymous donor.

Donor Embryos in FET

  • Not to mention, Donor embryos can be used in FET through various methods such as full embryo donation. There are options where we can also use donated eggs or sperm.

Comparison with Fresh Embryo Transfer

  • Unquestionably, Cryopreserved embryos may be stronger and more likely to result in a healthy pregnancy.
  • Certain circumstances show slightly higher live birth rates with frozen embryos rather than Fresh Embryo transfer.

Elective Frozen Embryo Transfer (Freeze All)

  • This involves cryopreserving all embryos and transferring them in a subsequent FET cycle.
  • Cryopreservation allows for the storage and preservation of embryos for future use.

  • When you have to use an embryo donor.
  • You have extra embryos from previous cycles.
  • Desire to have another child using.
  • Point often overlooked, is that FET is very much Cost-effective.
  • Cryopreserved embryos can be stored indefinitely for future use.


  • The “freeze all” approach allows for better implantation conditions in the uterus.

  • Subsequently. this may be recommended for those at high risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS).

Different FET-IVF Cycle Types

  • Hormonally supported cycles involve controlled timing and hormonal support.
