A new study determined that a freeze-all method, in which all embryos are voluntarily frozen, does not result in a higher pregnancy rate than fresh embryo transfer. This shows that a freeze-all method should be avoided for all women seeking treatment with assisted reproductive technology.

Although frozen embryo transfer (FET) has been a standard option in reproductive medicine, its efficacy in raising pregnancy rates remains contentious. Comparing the outcomes of frozen and fresh embryo transfers in ovulating women was the goal of this study, which aimed to address a knowledge gap.

Over the past decade, infertility therapies such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) have grown in popularity. Although they have been found to be effective in many instances, they are not always a surefire means to conceive.

To transport the embryo during the transfer, a catheter-like tube is inserted through the woman's cervix and into her uterus. This is typically done swiftly and while she is awake. During this procedure, an ultrasound of the abdomen is conducted to confirm that the embryo is correctly positioned in the uterus.

The live birth rate following transfer of fresh embryos varies between research, but is often higher than following transfer of frozen embryos. Nonetheless, according to a new study published today in The BMJ, freezing embryos for later transfer as part of assisted reproductive technology did not increase the likelihood of conception compared to fresh embryo transfer.

Although the freeze-all policy has been widely accepted and implemented, it is unclear if it boosts the birth rate among young women. Therefore, a clinical investigation comparing the live birth rate following frozen embryo transfer with fresh embryo transfer is required.

A recent study indicated that the transfer of frozen embryos during in vitro fertilization (IVF) may raise the incidence of hypertension in women. More than 4.5 million pregnancies in three European countries were evaluated by the researchers.

To further analyze the association between blood pressure and live birth rate, the authors compared data from five earlier research with those from two more recent investigations. In addition, data from the Danish Reproductive Outcomes Database and the National Registry for Human Reproduction in Norway, Sweden, and Denmark were evaluated.

During this meta-analysis, researchers compared single embryo transfer (SET) and double embryo transfer (DET) (DET). They studied clinical outcomes and rates of live birth, including implantation, continued pregnancy, and twin births.

The rates of live birth decreased following SET and DET, respectively. The implantation rate was comparable between groups, however the ongoing pregnancy and twin pregnancy rates were decreased after SET. In order to attain acceptable pregnancy and live birth rates, these findings imply that SET should be avoided whenever possible in fresh cycles.

Due to the hazards connected with ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome, several IVF institutions recommend that frozen embryos be transferred only in specific circumstances, such as when the patient's age is less than 35 years or when she has a high risk of developing the condition. Despite these safeguards, the rate of live births following frozen embryo transfers remains extremely low.

Moreover, a single-embryo transfer is associated with an increased risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OVAS), a painful response to drugs used to accelerate egg growth. This disorder can result in the development of significant fibroids, early ovarian failure, and miscarriage.
