Embryo transfer (ET)
Embryo transfer is a gentle introduction of the embryo (embryos) into the uterus cavity by a thin catheter under ultrasound control. The embryos are introduced with a small amount of fluid – the medium. The performance is fast, painless, and does not require anaesthesia. The number of embryos introduced depends mainly on the age of the patient, the number of the previous IVF cycles, and the female patient’s wish. Mostly 1 – 2 embryos are transferred. The patient may go home in about one hour after the ET, the first pregnancy test is made 2 weeks after the ET.
