Types of infertility treatment - Frozen Embryo Replacement (FER)

The Private Healthcare UK guide to infertility treatment contains articles on infertility and IVF treatment which are aimed at improving your knowledge of treatments for infertility, their benefits and potential risks.



In this section

Good quality spare embryos remaining from your IVF related treatment may be frozen and stored for use in a future cycle. Initially frozen embryos can be kept for five years; this can be extended to ten years in certain circumstances. You will be required to complete the relevant consent and HFEA forms.

The frozen embryos are thawed and transferred into your womb, either in a natural menstrual cycle or in hormone replacement cycle. Unfortunately, despite the precautions that are taken, not all embryos survive the freezing and thawing process. Thus reduced success rates can be expected from the frozen embryos.
