Embryo Cryopreservation Or Freezing

Embryo Cryopreservation or Freezing stores fertilized eggs for future use, often used alongside fertility treatments like IVF.

Are you undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) to conceive a child but have more embryos than you need or want to transfer at once? Do you want to save your embryos for future use or donation? Do you want to avoid the risks and costs of creating new embryos every time you attempt pregnancy? If yes, then you may benefit from embryo cryopreservation or freezing.

Embryo cryopreservation or freezing is a service that involves freezing and storing your excess embryos for future use. This can help you preserve your fertility and increase your chances of having a biological child when you are ready.

Some of the reasons why you may choose embryo cryopreservation or freezing are:

  • You have more embryos than you need or want to transfer in one cycle of IVF or ICSI, and you want to avoid the ethical, legal, or emotional issues of discarding or donating them.
  • You have a medical condition or treatment that may affect your fertility or embryo quality, such as cancer, endometriosis, or chemotherapy, and you want to secure your embryos before undergoing the condition or treatment.
  • You want to reduce the risk of multiple pregnancies by transferring fewer embryos at a time and keeping the rest for later use.
  • You want to lower the cost and complexity of IVF or ICSI by avoiding repeated ovarian stimulation and egg retrieval procedures.
  • You want to use preimplantation genetic testing (PGT) to screen embryos for genetic abnormalities or diseases before transferring them to the uterus, and you need to freeze the embryos while waiting for the test results
  • You want to use donor eggs or sperm to conceive a child without a female or male partner or with a partner who has a genetic disorder, and you need to freeze the embryos until you find a suitable donor or surrogate.

What to expect from embryo cryopreservation or freezing?

Embryo cryopreservation or freezing is a voluntary and confidential service that usually involves one or more cycles of treatment. A cycle consists of several steps:

  • Embryo creation: This involves retrieving eggs from the ovaries and fertilizing them with sperm in a laboratory using IVF or ICSI. The resulting embryos are then cultured in an incubator for three to six days until they reach the blastocyst stage (a cluster of cells that forms the embryo).
  • Embryo freezing and storage: This involves cooling the embryos rapidly in liquid nitrogen (called vitrification) to prevent ice crystals from forming and damaging the embryos. The frozen embryos are then stored in a secure facility until you decide to use them.
  • Embryo thawing and transfer: This involves warming the frozen embryos and transferring them to the uterus using a thin, flexible tube (called a catheter) through the cervix. The number and quality of the embryos transferred depend on your age, medical history, and preferences
  • Pregnancy test: This involves taking a blood test about two weeks after the embryo transfer to check for the presence of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), which is a hormone produced by the placenta after implantation. A positive test indicates pregnancy.

Embryo cryopreservation or freezing has many benefits over natural conception or other fertility treatments, such as:

  • Preserving your fertility and extending your reproductive window
  • Preserving your fertility and extending your reproductive window
  • Maintaining your embryo quality and quantity
  • Reducing the risk of genetic abnormalities or diseases in your child
  • Giving you more control and flexibility over your reproductive choices
  • Lowering the cost and complexity compared to other assisted reproductive technologies (ARTs), such as IVF

Embryo cryopreservation or freezing also has some limitations and risks, such as:

  • Not guaranteeing pregnancy or live birth, as many factors may affect the outcome
  • Having a high cost and complexity compared to natural conception
  • Having a possibility of embryo loss or damage due to technical errors or equipment failure
  • Having a potential for ethical, legal, or emotional issues related to embryo freezing, storage, donation, or disposal

Therefore, it is important to consult with your doctor before undergoing embryo cryopreservation or freezing and to follow their instructions and recommendations throughout the treatment.
