Hi everyone I'm not sure if this question has been asked before or not. I'm on my phone but did try to have a quick look but couldn't find anything similar.
We are incredibly lucky to have an 11 month old dd who was a result of a frozen embryo transfer. We are so lucky as we have a few still on ice.
The question that has been on my mind a lot lately is how long is the recommended time embryo's can be frozen for?
I've had a look back through my ivf paperwork but I haven't been able to find anything about it.
We are trying to figure out the right time to go back for another transfer, however I was wanting to wait until I had a little bit more leave owing at work again. But then I thought the other day, how long are the embryo's able to be frozen for & does the length of time affect their quality?
We had them frozen in 2014 I think it was.
If anyone has been through ivf & knows the answer I would really appreciate if you could fill me in as it may possibly bring our decision for transfer closer than what we were planning. Are they more likely to deteriorate when defrosted the longer they are frozen or do they stay the same quality?
I hope this makes sense. Thanks for any replies!
