During a frozen embryo transfer, an embryo which was previously frozen is thawed and transferred back into a woman’s uterus. This frozen embryo transfer treatment cycle involves ovulation induction. Your specialist will advise if this protocol is appropriate for you.
1. Day 1 of your period
Call the nurses on day 1 of your period and arrange to pick up the medication you will need.
2. Day 4
On day 4 of your cycle you will be asked to start taking a daily FSH injection.
3. Blood test & ultrasounds
After about 4 injections the nurses will organise for you to have your first blood test and from then ultrasounds and blood tests will be organised alternate days until the lining of your uterus is appropriate thickness and a dominant follicle is seen on ultrasound.
4. Trigger injection
When your nurses see a dominant follicle they will advise you to administer the trigger injection and schedule the embryo transfer date.
5. Pregnancy test
Two weeks later we will conduct a pregnancy test.
