Embryo Transfer is always different from clinic to clinic. Some clinics do 8-cell embryo transfer and some do the blastocyst embryo transfer. It is important to keep one thing in mind that the IVF success rate is not high 35-40% and embryo transfer is very important to maintain an IVF success rate of 35-40%. This is the step in which the cultured embryo or the thawed embryo is brought to 37 °C temperature and tries to be inserted into the uterus.

Important things about Embryo transfer

  • Before embryo transfer, every woman has to make a special preparation, especially at the time of frozen embryo transfer. In this, the doctor will give you medicine and after that after a specific time, call the hospital and do Vaginal Sonography, which is called Pelvic ultrasound (Internal ultrasound). In this examination, the uterus lining (the lining where the embryo stays and grow in the uterus) is also examined with eggs, which is medically termed as endometrial thickness. An endometrial thickness of 7mm to 9mm is considered optimal. This means if your uterus endometrial ranges between 7 to 9mm, then it is a green signal before embryo transfer.
  • Hormonal support is given three to four days before embryo transfer, which is progesterone hormone. Progesterone hormone is the hormone that aids pregnancy. Since this procedure is done artificially, doctors always try to take care that the progesterone hormone level is normal in the body, so that when it goes from the embryo laboratory to the uterus, it gets proper help. So, your doctor will surely give you a progesterone hormone supplement before embryo transfer.

What care should be taken on the day of Embryo Transfer?

  1. This procedure is performed in more than 99% of patients without any kind of anesthesia.
  2. Your doctor will always ask you to drink water so that your bladder is full for sonography.
  3. Under the guidance of sonography, after observing the endometrial thickness, the doctor lightly transfers the embryo inside the uterus from the laboratory. This is called Embryo Transfer Technique. It is a painless procedure.
  4. After this procedure, the doctor tells you to pass urine after 5-10 minutes and after that, you can go home.

Going for strict bed rest and cutting down on the meals is a big misconception after embryo transfer. Doing this will not help you to get success in the IVF procedure. Hence, there is absolutely no need to take strict bed rest after IVF or Embryo transfer procedure. With strict bed rest, you are reducing the chances of your IVF being successful.

However, after IVF embryo transfer, women can go to work and conduct other activities. Women can continue their routine as it was before. Besides, you can have your meal as usual without worrying about what to eat or what not to eat.
