Milestone for Frozen Embryo Transfer – Latest HFEA Data

The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) data shows live birth rates for frozen embryo transfer rising above fresh embryo transfer in the latest published report.

The success rates for frozen embryo transfer have steadily been improving for frozen embryo transfer and now exceed fresh embryo transfer live birth rates; which the HFEA has described as an ‘important milestone in the development of IVF’. The latest 2016 data shows a live birth rate per embryo transfer of 22% for frozen, compared to 21% for fresh transfers.
