The quest to bring a bundle of joy into the world is a difficult journey for many hopeful couples. IVF is one such process that can help realize this dream, and mock embryo transfer (MET) is an important step in the IVF procedure. Read along to get an overview of MET, its definition, benefits, when it’s recommended, chances of successful pregnancy with MET and associated risks.
What Is Mock Embryo Transfer?
Mock embryo transfer (also known as trial transfer) is a procedure that helps prepare a patient’s uterus for actual embryo implantation in an IVF cycle. It involves passing a catheter through the cervix into the uterus with no embryos instead of passing it through with embryos, as seen in actual embryo transfers. This procedure aims to assess the size & shape of the uterine cavity and measure the level of resistance from cervical muscles, helping doctors plan better for actual embryo transfers.
Benefits Of Mock Embryo Transfer
The main benefit of MET is that it provides valuable insights which otherwise would not have been available to doctors before carrying out actual embryo transfer. This helps them understand the uterine position better and plan accordingly before transferring healthy embryos ensuring higher chances of conception. Additionally, mock transfers are less invasive than actual ones as they do not involve using embryos, thus reducing potential risks associated with embryo transfers.
When Is It Recommended?
Mock embryo transfer is usually recommended if you have had unsuccessful IVF cycles due to poor response from your body or certain anatomical abnormalities like fibroids or polyps. Doctors would also recommend this procedure If there are any doubts regarding how your uterus will respond to actual implantations.

Chances Of Conception After Mock Embryo Transfer
Studies conducted on couples attempting pregnancy through assisted reproductive technology (ART) showed higher success rates when compared to versions without any assistance. However, more data from clinical trials involving larger groups of patients is needed before conclusive results can be obtained regarding this procedure.
Risks Associated With Mock Embryo Transfers
Mock embryo transfers are generally safe, yet there may be a slight risk of infection or cramping during or after the procedure, requiring immediate medical attention. The risk may increase if you suffer from conditions like endometriosis or pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), so it’s important to consult an expert who can assess and decide if you are suitable for this treatment.
