Moving frozen embryos from one clinic to the next

Moving frozen embryos from one clinic to the next

Postby mcpb » Mon Sep 25, 2017 5:42 pm

Is it safe (or even feasible) to move frozen embryos from one clinic to another? I'm wanting to take a more natural approach to my frozen embryo transfer than my current dr can provide as he only does batched cycles. What does the process involve? Are all clinics open to this or would some not be willing to transfer embryos from another clinic? Thanks in advance.

Barring an unforeseen circumstance it it should be safe to transfer embryos. Embryos are shipped everyday all over the world.

The embryos are considered the property of the people who created them so a clinic should not be able to prevent you from transferring them to a clinic which will accept them.
