Dummy Embryo Transfer
The dummy embryo transfer is a trial run for the process of embryo transfer. This is necessary to establish whether the actual transfer is likely to encounter difficulties. It also allows us to take measurements and/or note any deviations of the uterus.
When the time comes for the actual embryo transfer this information allows us to proceed with the least amount of trauma to the fragile embryos. Should we encounter resistance to the passage of the catheter we may recommend ways to dilate the cervix.
The use of dilapan/cervical dilatation facilitates the embryo transfer procedure and this helps to improve the pregnancy rate.
