the benefits of frozen embryo transfers over a fresh (stimulated) cycle? In addition to the lower cost, benefits to a FET cycle include: Less Medication. Instead of stimulation medication, patients use estrogen and progesterone to thicken the lining of their uterus in preparation for the embryo transfer to allow implantation.
