FET versus doing another fresh cycle
Posted 09 September 2021 - 08:31 PM
Currently my insurance does not pay for anything and it is all out of pocket. However, our insurance is changing and rumor has it we will have some type of fertility treatment coverage next year. The financial counselor did say that most insurances will not cover fresh cycles until you transfer the frozen embryos.
My fear with waiting until January (when new insurance kicks in)is that too much time has gone by and my egg quality would have decreased. Or I transfer the frozen embryos and miscarry and it will also be too late to try another cycle. My fertility doctor said I could do either as I responded well to stimulation less than a year ago, but to not wait past the first quarter of next year for a fresh cycle.
I am looking for advice on whether to go ahead with fresh cycle or do a FET first? Thank you in advance!

If you only want one baby, I would transfer now. If you are lucky and you get pregnant and you are willing to formula feed you could still do another egg retrieval next year, after June/July, which is past the 1st quarter of the year, but there's not much you can do about that. I don't want to speak this into existence, but clinics were shut down during the first wave, so there is also the covid factor to consider.
