Embryo transfer types

Embryo transfer types

When an in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment is performed, the embryos generated can be used either fresh or frozen. Depending on this, the embryo transfer can be a:

Fresh transfer
the embryos are not frozen.
Frozen transfer
the embryos are vitrified and used in the future, i.e. in another cycle. This is usual when, for example, the patient suffers from ovarian hyperstimulation.

Another case of deferred transfer is when there are surplus embryos since most clinics only transfer a maximum of three embryos.
