Transcript of Frozen Embryo transfer

By Ashley Gianni Frozen Embryo Transfer Frozen Embryo Transfer Frozen embryo video How the embryo is frozen Is frozen embryo a safe choice? There are several different treatments for couples that are unable to have children on their own. In-vitro fertilization is one of the more popular choices. In-vitro fertilization is taking the sperm and the egg and placing them in a petri dish for fertilization. Frozen embryo transfer is the fertilized egg from the in-vitro fertilization being frozen until the mother wants the egg implanted in her. The egg can then be unfrozen and implanted in the uterus. The embryo is exposed to multiple cryoprotectants which is a substance used to protect the embryo from freezing damages. The embryo is then slowly cooled to a negative 321 degrees Fahrenheit (the temperature of liquid nitrogen). The embryo can be frozen as long as you want it to be, but once unfrozen it must be placed in the mothers uterus within 24 hours in order to survive. Frozen embryo survival rate is 95 % compared to in-vitro fertilization and there is almost no loss of the quality of the embryo. The babies from frozen embryo transfer are just as likely to live full happy healthy lives as any other normal baby. https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&sugexp=les%3Beappsweb&gs_rn=6&gs_ri=psy-ab&gs_mss=frozen+embryo+transfer+du&tok=XKxmUl8xBtl7zYM3NYZIvg&pq=frozen+embryo+transfer+due+date&cp=24&gs_id=2a&xhr=t&q=frozen+embryo+transfer+due+date&bav=on.2,or.r_qf.&bvm=bv.43828540,d.dmQ&biw=2133&bih=1052&bs=1&um=1&ie How the embryo is inserted into the mother http://www.reproductivemedicine.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/embryo_transfer1.png Survival rates http://www.pivet.com.au/UserDir/Images/2010Fig%203%20ET%20x%20FET-3.jpg Parents with their healthy baby who was born by frozen embryo transfer. http://resources2.news.com.au/images/2012/01/05/1226237/776550-annette-alen-and-lyla-vukoje.jpg
