At the time of your embryo transfer, the embryologist will discuss with you the quality and number of embryos and whether any would be suitable for freezing for use in the future. The transfer will take place back in the procedure room, but usually requires no sedation or anaesthetic. The embryos, once selected, will be transferred using a special catheter, a fine plastic tube which is inserted through the cervix and into the womb.
Once the procedure has been completed, you will be discharged home and advised to wait for at least two weeks before taking a pregnancy test to see if the transfer was successful. This can be the hardest part of the process but we suggest you carry on life as normally as possible. After the pregnancy test has been taken, we will either carry out an ultrasound scan or we will organise an appointment for you to discuss the next steps.
