Embryos that have been frozen in a previous cycle can be thawed and placed into a woman’s uterus. While of course this takes careful monitoring on our side, the benefit for the patient is that there is no need to undergo an entire IVF cycle again. Since the embryos have already been created, one can skip the egg stimulation and collection stage – though there may be need for medication to help thicken and maintain the uterine lining – meaning the whole process can be much quicker and easier than a fresh embryo transfer.
