Study Released on Live Birth Rates After “Freeze All” Approach
We have been hearing more now on the advantages of freezing all the embryos created from an IVF cycle and then thawing/transferring at a later time to allow the woman’s body to normalize after the egg stimulation.
Does this “freeze-all” approach reduce the overal success rate? Fascinating new research addressed this question.
What is the chance of having a child following one complete in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle for patients using a freeze-all strategy? This is the question that Qianqian Zhu and co-workers from Shanghai, China, asked themselves. The answer, after doing 20,687 freeze-all cycles, is that the chance of having a child after one complete freeze all cycle and all resulting embryo transfers is 51%.
