Embryo Selection and Transfer

The embryo transfer procedure is very similar to an IUI. While watching with an ultrasound, a small catheter is introduced through the cervix and into the uterine cavity.  An even smaller catheter is then loaded with the embryo(s) and passed through the first catheter.  The embryo(s) is then pushed out into the uterus where it will hopefully implant.  After the transfer, patients are asked to rest in a lying position for approximately 30 minutes.
