Considering IVF at Texas Fertility Center? If so, you should know about a new study that involved freeze-all IVF cycles. A large study of more than 16,000 IVF cycles at 12 fertility centers suggests that a freeze-all approach can lead to higher rates of pregnancy in women over 35. Our Austin fertility center team is here to explain everything you need to know about this study.
A freeze-all approach was first used as a way to minimize the risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). However, some fertility specialists surmised that this approach could help other groups of women.
Some evidence suggests that fertility medications can have a negative impact on uterine receptivity in certain patients. As a result, physicians suspected that these patients would have higher rates of pregnancy with a freeze-all IVF approach – and they appear to be right.
However, our Austin fertility center does not recommend a freeze-all approach for all patients. Until there is more research, there is no evidence that this approach increases the rate of success for other patient groups.
