Frozen Embryo

Hi. Can you please tell me how the clinic freeze leftover embryos? If you have 3 embryos remaining, are they frozen separately so they can be used for three separate FETs? Thank you

All embryos are frozen separately and can be thaw one at a time.  It may be possible to have 3 separate FET cycles but not all embryos will survive the freeze thaw process and it may be necessary to than more than one each cycle.
