In the event of the pregnancy test being negative, a consultation is done to review the case and the next possibilities. We usually work on the principle of One IVF stimulation cycle leading to a pregnancy or even to complete a family. This means that usually the oocytes retrieved during the first IVF stimulation cycle, should be able to yield enough embryos, so that the excess embryos can be frozen and utilized when required. Hence the next step would be a Frozen Embryo Transfer.
