What happens during embryo transfer?
- On the day of your transfer appointment report directly to the fertility unit. We understand this can be an anxious time
- Embryo transfer is usually a simple and painless procedure and takes 5-10 minutes. No anaesthetic or sedation is required
- You do not need to have a full bladder. Your partner is welcome to sit with you during the transfer
- A nurse will escort you to the treatment room and ask you to prepare as you would if you were having a cervical smear. We will ask you to confirm your full name and date of birth
- We have a rigorous witnessing procedure that ensures that each stage of movement or use of egg, sperm or embryo(s) is witnessed by two members of staff
- Our embryologist will tell you about the development and quality of your embryo(s) and the final decision will be made about the best number of embryos to transfer
- The chance of any embryo implanting is dependent on a variety of factors including age, quality of embryos and any other relevant history (i.e. previous pregnancy). When making this decision we are balancing the chance of a pregnancy with the risks of a multiple pregnancy
- We will also discuss any possible embryo storage with you.
After your embryo transfer
- After your transfer you will meet with a nurse to discuss your next steps
- If you have any concerns about activity levels or your medication in this next phase of your treatment be sure and discuss this in your meeting
- The nurse will advise you when to do your pregnancy test (16 days after egg transfer) and give you a test kit
- Please do not use commercial pregnancy tests as these are not as accurate and can be misleading
- You will need to call us with the result on the day of your test
- If your result is positive we will confirm what medication you should continue taking and arrange a pregnancy scan.
