One of the most important medical steps in the embryo adoption process is the Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET). This step happens when the adopted embryos are placed into the adoptive mother’s uterus. Understandably, couples often have a lot of questions about what the FET process is like, whether or not it hurts, and what they need to do to prepare. There is a great deal of information about embryo adoption on our website, but we know that hearing about another’s couples experience with frozen embryo transfers can be especially helpful to anyone who is considering a similar adoption process.
Meet Cathy and Scott LaSorsa, a couple who adopted embryos through the National Embryo Donation Center, and hear what they have to say about the transfer process:
Just like Cathy’s doctor, your doctor will ensure that your body is in the ideal state to receive the embryos, either during a natural or medicated cycle. Cathy describes the transfer procedure “very relaxing,” and that’s a great way to start a journey towards motherhood! The procedure itself is painless and over in just a few minutes. Your doctor will ask you to stay in the clinic for a few hours for observation, and you’ll be able to go home the same day. Most women experience the same uneventful transfer procedure that Cathy enjoyed. Be sure to read through the FAQ section of our website to learn more about the medical procedures involved with adopting an embryo.
