At Long Island IVF, we provide the most comprehensive and clinically sound fertility testing and treatments.
We start by performing a complete review of our patients' medical records and a careful assessment of their individual fertility status.
Frozen Embryo Transfer
At Long Island IVF, our success with frozen embryo transfers is equivalent to that of fresh embryo transfers. During a traditional cycle of IVF, we usually transfer 2 to 4 embryos to the uterus to maximize the chance of conception while minimizing the likelihood of multiple births. Additional embryos are cryopreserved and stored for future cycles.
Cryopreservation, or freezing of embryos, allows you to store excess embryos for later use. If pregnancy does not occur during the stimulated cycle, the frozen embryos may be thawed and transferred to the uterus during a spontaneous menstrual cycle. If conception does result from the initial stimulated cycle, cryopreserved embryos can be used later in an attempt to achieve another pregnancy.
