Frozen fetus transfer to increase hypertension during pregnancy

Recent study shows the risk of developing hypertension during pregnancy if a Frozen fetus is transferred. The research published in Journal Hypertension states that a mother is at risk of developing disorders related to hypertension if the baby is conceived through transfer of embryo. If compared to conceiving the child naturally, artificially conceived pregnancy can cause approximately 75% increased risk of developing hypertension.

The study also concluded that due to high blood pressure in mothers during pregnancy a condition called preeclampsia occurs. It is a sign of high blood pressure or kidney failure in women, commonly above 20 years of age. Usually, it occurs in 4-5% of all pregnancies. This is reported to be dangerous in the long term for both mother and the fetus. Frozen embryo transfer has become a trend in the past few years. Instead of recommending fresh embryo transfer, doctors are even suggesting to go through the process of  embryo transfers.

They are keeping these embryo’s in their clinics, calling it an all freeze approach. The data of this study has been collected through a population based study, called siblings comparison. In this method, comparison was done between a Frozen embryo transfer pregnancy and a naturally conceived pregnancy. Using this method, it was possible to determine if the IVF procedure or potential parental factors were to blame for the hypertensive illnesses.

The study lastly concluded that though IVFs are healthy but when compared to naturally conceived pregnancy, Frozen embryo pregnancies are responsible for developing hypertensive disorders in the mothers which eventually affects the child too.
