For most couples, following an IVF treatment cycle, a number of high quality embryos develop, and are frozen. These frozen (or vitrified) embryos are your potential future family, suspended in time.
When thawed in 2, 3, or even 5 years time, it still grows and functions in the same way as when it was first formed. This gives you the same chance of your frozen embryo leading to the birth of a healthy baby, as it would have at the time the eggs were collected.
Ballarat IVF has a very good pregnancy rate using thawed embryos. In the year to June 2018, our patients under the age of 38, achieved a live pregnancy in 46% of embryo transfers, which is outstanding.
