The most important and final stage in IVF treatments is the placement of developing embryos in the uterus, namely “embryo transfer”. As Fibo Health, we have compiled all the information about embryo transfer for you.
What is Embryo Transfer?
The last step in IVF treatment is embryo transfer. The embryo is obtained as a result of combining the ovule collected with OPU with the sperm. Embryo transfer (ET) is the process of transferring the fertilized fetus (embryo) in the laboratory into the uterus on the gynecological examination table with the help of a catheter. The best quality 1-2 embryos selected from the developing embryos are left inside the mother’s uterus and the embryos are expected to cling to the uterus (endometrium) to form a pregnancy. The day of the transfer is decided by evaluating many factors such as the age of the mother, the treatment history, the number and quality of the embryos.
How is Embryo Transfer Performed?
Embryo transfer is an easy procedure that does not require anesthesia. Since the transfer process is performed under observation with abdominal ultrasound, it is requested that the bladder be full during the procedure. Performing the transfer with ultrasound guidance allows the passage of the catheter into the uterus to be monitored. After the transfer, the patient is taken to her room after resting for 15-20 minutes, and she is asked to rest for about 1-2 hours there.
