Frozen embryo transfer (FET) is the process of transferring embryos from a previously cryopreserved (frozen) state to the uterus of a patient. Embryos that were not transferred in a previous cycle, may have been cryopreserved and stored for future cycles. Patients that undergo FET are monitored through ultrasound and blood tests to determine the most opportune time to transfer the embryos for implantation. In some cases, patients may receive hormone medication to ensure a successful transfer. While frozen embryo transfer (FET) cycles require less medication, minimal monitoring, and are much less expensive than a fresh cycle, they still provide high pregnancy rates.
