Our expert says:
In general the quality of embryos is not affected by the duration or the length of freezing. The quality is affected by the freezing process itself and the thawing process per say. In general frozen embryos are of a lower quality in implantation potential than fresh embryos and therefore pregnancy rates are definitely slightly low than fresh cycles. Since these pregnancy rates are dependent on the initial quality of the embryos as well as operator dependent, it is difficult to say what would happen in your particular instance. As far as the protocol is concerned this is entirely dependent on your gynaecologist and also on whether your natural cycle is regular and normal.
