The dream of starting a family and giving birth to children is shared by many couples, but the process of becoming fertile is not always easy.

The process of getting ready for your frozen embryo transfer can be filled with uncertainty, stress, and fear for couples who have had unsuccessful IVF treatments. Thankfully, past embryo transfers or IVF attempts can supply a lot of embryos for subsequent tries for people who have already had one (or more) IVF cycles and have frozen embryos left over.

Because frozen embryo transfers (IVF-FET) are 10% more likely to result in a live delivery than fresh ones, they are a common choice among couples who have had difficulty getting pregnant in the past as well as fertility specialists and medical professionals. The uterus must be prepared for frozen embryo transfers, thus doing it correctly is crucial to improving your chances of having a healthy live birth after IVF FET.


Each embryo transfer results in a 60% pregnancy rate for patients under the age of 35, compared to a 20% pregnancy rate for women beyond the age of 40.

When you decide it’s time for a frozen embryo transfer, it’s crucial to get your uterus ready for implantation using the right medications and lifestyle choices.


When a woman ovulates, her body creates progesterone, which causes the endometrial lining to grow at the ideal rate for nourishing the fertilized eggs. Timing is crucial when it comes to Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART), as with other things. The entire IVF process, including the transfer of frozen embryos, often takes six to eight weeks. It takes roughly three weeks to complete a frozen embryo transfer alone.

  • Plan and take medications as prescribed

You’ll be given progesterone and other additional drugs to prepare your uterus and other hormonal processes before having a frozen embryo transfer. Make sure you have enough medication on hand and that you know how to take it.

It’s a good idea to move everything you’ll need nearby if your doctor advises bed rest, especially your fertility meds. Make an effort to schedule your daily medicine intake and confirm that you have easy access to all of your doctor’s recommended prescriptions. This will ensure that you don’t forget anything important before the surgery and that you are taking all the necessary precautions.

  • Keep a Dust/Trash bin Near to Your Bed

Before the embryo transfer, fertility drugs can generate a lot of waste and packaging. Make sure you can dispose of any waste you need to without getting out of bed and disturbing your sleep.

While you wait for your frozen embryo transfer, it will also help you greatly reduce clutter (and stress levels) to have a place handy to dump medicine packets and other debris.

  • Get Enough Sleep

Interestingly, being on bed rest can make it more difficult to get a decent night’s sleep. To support your IVF cycle, it’s imperative to obtain enough sleep because sleep and fertility are tightly related. According to a 2013 study, women who slept for 7 to 8 hours every night were more likely to become pregnant than those who slept for a less (or more) time. You can take melatonin to help your body naturally regulate your sleep cycle if you have difficulties falling asleep.
