    Interesting comment of the Imudia study that point out the possibility to reduce the risk of perinatal morbidity by using cryopreservation for all embryos with subsequent cryothaw embryo transfer. Lately it has been published several studies that show higher implantation rates after transferring thaw embryos. Bearing in mind both issues, it seems that we can achieve better outcome rates with the transfer of thaw embryos. However, regarding the perinatal morbidity, a prospective randomized controlled trial with higher sample size is required.
