Frozen embryo transfer, also known as FET, is a procedure in which a post frozen embryo, from a previous fresh IVF cycle, is transferred to a prepared uterus in order to have a baby.

In a cycle of IVF or ICSI treatment, it may sometimes be possible to give rise to several excess embryos over embryos that need to be transferred to the woman during the same treatment cycle. These embryos can be stored for a long time under freezing procedures. These embryos can be saved for subsequent pregnancies by freezing or may be donated to other infertile couples after consultation, with the consent of the couple and during the legal process. One of the most important reasons for developing embryo freezing methods is to reduce the risk of multiple pregnancies. Multiple pregnancies increase the risk of miscarriage and preterm birth. To prevent this, fewer new embryos are transferred to the uterus and the rest are stored for future use. Also, if the mother's uterus is not ready for pregnancy, for example, because of chemotherapy or radiation, embryos can be frozen for better use. It seems that the process of freezing the embryo does not greatly affect the quality of the fetus. According to studies, the chances of pregnancy with frozen embryos are somewhat lower than those of fresh embryos. The chances of successful pregnancy depend on the method of freezing the embryo, the equipment of the clinic and the expertise of the technicians.
The doctor examines the couple's medical history and medications. The doctor examines the uterus by ultrasound. It may also insert a scope into the uterus through the vagina for a better visual inspection. With these tests, the doctor can check the health of the uterus, ovaries, endometrium, and infection and determine the best way to embryo implant. The total amount of drugs prescribed in this procedure is far less than the amount used in an IVF cycle. After taking medications such as estrogenic compounds, your doctor will perform another ultrasound on the 13-14th day of menstruation. If the uterine and endometrial conditions are appropriate, a course of hormone therapy with estrogen and progesterone is done to provide a suitable environment for the frozen embryo transfer
