Embryo transfer


Embryo transfer
is the process by which one or several embryos are placed in the surrogate uterus. The embryo/s selected might be freshly fertilized in laboratory settings or cryogenically frozen embryo from a previous IVF cycle. The embryo could also be from a donor.

Embryo Transfer

After the Intended Parents select a suitable donor from VIVA’s list of egg donors, arrangements are made with a local clinic in your home to collect and process semen from the male partner. After collection, the semen sample is cryogenically frozen and sent to one of VIVA’s partner clinics for In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) or Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) with the eggs from the Donor. The eggs will be checked the following day to document fertilization and early cell division. When multiple cells are present, they are now called embryo. Once the embryos reach optimum size and criteria, as determined by an embryologist, the Intended Parents will be briefed on the number of embryos to transfer and/or the number of embryos left to freeze.

Fresh Embryo Transfer In-vitro Fertilization performed in a high quality laboratory has been found in several studies to have the highest success rate, but pregnancies from frozen embryo occur all the time as well. Success rates are particularly high in patients who are under 35 years of age, or who conceived with their first IVF cycle. Fresh Single Embryo transfer is recommended for those who are concerned about a multiple pregnancy or who are using donor eggs and a surrogate.

Embryo TransferDo I fly abroad for treatment or can I send semen or embryos?

It is up to you whether you prefer to fly to the clinic for IVF, or to send your semen or embryos to the clinic.

If you prefer to fly, you can use the opportunity to meet the medical staff who will be involved in your care as well as have a look at the medical facilities, which will boost your confidence in the process. We will provide you with information about recommended hotels near the clinic, various ideal flight itineraries and transport logistics from the airport to hotel, as well as all the necessary appointments and documentation.

If you prefer to send your sperm or embryos, we will arrange all the logistics and proper documents that are needed for shipping frozen semen or frozen embryo in a safe, effective and reliable method.
