You could anticipate that, in the interest of “keeping things natural,” the body would respond better to fresh embryos that were created following your cycle and that had never been frozen and thawed. The data and studies, however, paint a different picture. In this article, we will be talking about benefits of frozen embryo.
Studies have been conducted all around the world to compare if freezing embryos affects the chances of IVF, and the conclusion is that it does. Of course, there will always be certain people for whom there will be exceptions.
Researchers have discovered that patients who choose frozen embryo transfers benefit in a variety of ways, including:
- Decreased chances of miscarriage
- Increased chances of implantation
- Greater chances of delivering a healthy, full-term baby
- Healthier babies
- Decreased risk of premature labor
- Healthier mothers
Benefits Of Frozen Embryo
It is well known that fertility drugs, especially injectable fertility drugs used for IVF, hurt a woman’s body. It is a roller coaster of reproductive hormones, to put it briefly. The body may not be in the best condition to conceive and give the nutritious environment the embryo needs to develop after going through all that to create dozens of eggs.
Therefore, we think the disparities in success rates are due to the recovery period between ovarian stimulation and the final transfer of a thawed, frozen embryo (or embryos). When we time embryo transfer to coincide with your uterus’s most receptive window, hormones have a chance to return to their more natural balance, which makes you more receptive.
Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome is a disorder that can be a risk of using reproductive drugs (OHSS). According to studies, a woman’s risk of having OHSS is reduced by waiting longer between stimulating the ovaries and transferring a healthy embryo.
How Older Women Can Benefit From Frozen Embryos
While endometriosis and PCOS are among the most common medical causes of female infertility in the U.S., maternal age is one of the most frequent causes of infertility that is not a real disease. Unfortunately, a woman’s eggs begin to rapidly deteriorate around the age of 35, which means that if she continues to use her eggs rather than a younger, donor egg, IVF success rates will also drop.
The good news for women between the ages of 36 and 42 is that research has revealed a significantly beneficial difference is made when using frozen embryos, pre-implantation genetic testing (PGT), and chromosomal screening.
Embryologists have determined that women in this advanced age group who use preimplantation genetic testing and frozen embryos and who successfully implant the embryos have a 74.5% chance of giving birth to a healthy, full-term baby.
In contrast, 53.7% of women reported using successfully implanted fresh embryos. This substantial difference points to a strategy for raising IVF success rates for women who are 36 years old and older.
How Frozen Embryos Reduce Miscarriage Rate
Nothing is more upsetting than making it through the two-week wait, learning you’re pregnant, and then learning you’re miscarrying. It is disastrous. However, one advantage of using frozen embryos with PGT is a decrease in miscarriages.
Reviews of certain research revealed that whereas women using frozen embryos miscarry only 2.8% of the time, fresh embryo transfers have loss rates of roughly 18.5%.
One of the wisest decisions you can make to provide yourself and your unborn child the best odds of a healthy, full-term pregnancy is to use frozen embryos rather than fresh ones.
