Brief Answer:
Wait

Detailed Answer:
Hi

I am happy that TBPCR is negative. You are almost out of danger.

Probably culture report also will be negative.

Embryos can safely be stored for 5 years. Dont worry about it.

I prefer to wait till culture report and then go for Embryo transfer.

Till then try to be physically active and exercise regularly.

Get ultrasound scan done on 14th day of cycle to check how is endometrial thickness in cycles before embryo transfer.

Let me know if you have any more questions. .
