What is an FET?

A Frozen Embryo Transfer cycle is the process whereby a patient uses embryos frozen from a previous IVF cycle in a new cycle. It is performed in a unstimulated cycle and involves careful monitoring and preparation of the lining of the uterus (endometrium), ready for the transfer of frozen embryos.

Whether you have your frozen embryos stored in our bank or you are having them transferred to us from another clinic, our expert team of embryologists will carefully thaw the embryo/s and assess their suitability. If the embryo is still suitable after thawing, it will be transferred into the womb as in a normal IVF cycle.

Next step
  • Scan & Consultation

    The first step is for you to come in for an Advanced Ultrasound Scan & Virtual Consultation with one of our highly experienced Fertility Consultants, you can book this online here.

  • Treatment Consultation

    2 weeks before the start of your period you will come in to meet with a fertility nurse who will talk you through your treatment plan and go through the consent forms with you.

  • Scans & Blood tests

    You will have 2 or 3 monitoring scans usually spaced days apart; each takes 20 minutes. The doctor may perform blood tests at these appointments.

  • Embryo Transfer

    The embryo transfer is a quick and easy procedure which does not need sedation and feels similar to a smear test

  • Pregnancy test

    We will invite you back to the clinic for a pregnancy blood test and give you the test results by the end of the day.


FET success rates

Although initially it was believed that fresh embryos offer better success rates than using frozen embryos, success rates for IVF using frozen embryos have increased year on year and are now comparable to using fresh embryos. At CREATE we are very proud of our FET success rates because we have invested a great deal of research and effort into advancing our techniques to ensure we create and freeze high quality embryos.
