  • Increase in success rates with frozen embryo transfer (FET) and reduced risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) and multiple pregnancies has lead to a steady rise in FET. Further, FET is associated with lower risk of prematurity and low birth weight in singletons, when compared with fresh transfer. However, there is a growing concern of increased risk of large for gestational (LGA) and/or macrosomic children after FET. Macrosomic/LGA births have a higher risk of cesarean section, fetal… CONTINUE READING
