    Default Cost of frozen embryo transfer

    Just wondering if anyone can give me a rough guideline on how much it is to do a frozen embryo transfer and how it works?? It might sound like a silly question but we have the eggs frozen to use just wondering about the cost and what you have to do before hand. Thanx in advance :-)

    It depends on your clinic price-wise sorry, and also whether you have a natural or stimulated cycle. In a natural cycle (I.e you ovulate naturally) they will monitor you and do the transfer after you ovulate depending on the 'age' of the embryos (e.g 3 day embryo is transferred 3 days after ovulation, or 5 day embryo transfer is done 5 days after ovulation). In a stimulated cycle you will take injections (very similar to process for ivf egg collection but lower dose of drugs as they just want you to ovulate not make multiple eggs), you will be monitored and ovulation will be triggered then you have your transfer however many days after.
    I had stimulated frozen embryo transfer. My clinic in SA is pretty reasonably priced, it cost about $1700 from memory. I had FSH injections for about 10 days then a trigger injection and a 5 day transfer (under ultrasound guidance by my fertility specialist) then pregnyl support injections and progesterone pessaries to support the pregnancy in first trimester. I now have a 16 week old baby girl.
    Sorry this is a lot of info - ask any questions you need!! Congrats on the frozen embies hope you get your bfp soon 😀

    Thanx and congratulations on your baby girl 😊 it's a long story but the embies were 5day. It would be a natural cycle as I ovulate fine. Just wondering if there was a price difference between a natural and stimulated cycle. I might have to ring and speak to them tomorrow. Thanx again for your response 😊
