We offer frozen embryo transfer at our fertility centers in Beverly Hills, Sherman Oaks, and Valencia to allow you the chance of conception when the time is right for you. When more eggs are retrieved than needed, we can freeze them for future use (cryopreservation). Embryos can be frozen at any stage between day one and day six after egg retrieval and can be stored for years. The patient can then return to the Center for Reproductive Health & Gynecology where Dr. Najmabadi and our team can perform a frozen embryo transfer, increasing the opportunity to conceive after a single egg procedure.
The Frozen Embryo Transfer Process
The frozen embryo transfer process is less invasive than standard egg collection. Frozen embryo transfer can be done during your natural cycle, or we may need to control your cycle with medication depending on whether we can monitor the time of your natural ovulation. The embryos are placed into your uterus at the time of ovulation and the when the thickness of the endometrium (lining of your uterus) is right.
Before the frozen embryo transfer can be performed, your embryos will need to be thawed so the age of the embryos corresponds to the age of your uterine lining. The timing of frozen embryo transfer usually depends on the stage at which the embryos were frozen.
Not all embryos survive the cryopreservation process. Before the frozen embryo transfer, we will evaluate your embryos to make sure they are ready for transfer. If they are, then the frozen embryo transfer can go forward. During the procedure a catheter is inserted through the cervix and the embryos are placed into the uterus. The frozen embryo transfer usually takes about 15 minutes.
Frozen Embryo Transfer Success Rate
The success rate of frozen embryo transfer is almost as successful as standard In vitro fertilization (IVF). Success depends on several factors, including the number and quality of embryos, your age, and the cause of infertility.

It’s always the word of an experience the best advice. Here are some of them…
Stingray sting. No idea what it was other than the pain, swelling and color were “not cool“ 3 hours afterward !! Went to PMH and received Fantastic Care. People oriented as you would expect, but genuinely so, Dr Alcázar and the Paramedic who saw me were insightful and acted immediately to resolve the pain, confirm no other damage or residual, and prescribe short term medication. A great, friendly and excellent place. Grateful !
I am so happy to have been a patient of the Punta Mita Hospital, the staff did an amazing job. Thanks so much
Wonderful facility, amazing doctors and nursing staff. After a fall on Christmas eve resulting in a fractured wrist the medical staff took such good care of me. I could not have had better treatment anywhere else.
