Background: Frozen embryo transfer has become an integral part of in vitro fertilization (IVF). But there are wide variations in the reported fertility outcomes in fresh and frozen embryo transfers.
Objective: The objective of the study was to compare the fertility outcomes between fresh versus frozen embryo transfer in a specialty reproductive center.
Materials and Methods: A retrospective cohort study was conducted at Dubai healthcare city, among 121 women who underwent IVF treatment and had either fresh or frozen embryo transfer. Variables like fertility patterns, hormonal levels, treatment parameters, and outcome parameters were compared between the two groups. The study was conducted from January 2020 until October 2020 during the peak of the SARS COVID pandemic, and as a result, a greater number of women underwent frozen cycles.
Results: Among 121 women, 37 had fresh embryo transfer, and 84 underwent frozen embryo transfer. The mean age of the fresh group was 37.11 ± 4.2 (years), and it was 35.74 ± 4.42 (years) in the frozen group. In the fresh group, 13 (35.14%) participants and in the frozen group, 60 (71.43%) participants had clinical pregnancy. The difference in the proportion of clinical pregnancy between the type of ET was statistically significant (P value <0.001).
Conclusion: The pregnancy rate significantly differed between the fresh embryo and frozen embryo groups. Frozen embryo transfer had a lower risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome and a higher chance of successful pregnancy outcomes.
