Embryo Freezing at the Fertility Center
Embryo cryopreservation or “freezing and storing” is a proven method of preserving fertility and making multiple attempts at conception more economical.
Embryo freezing benefits not only couples who have been diagnosed as infertile but also cancer patients needing to safeguard their chances of parenthood before undergoing surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy treatments that might damage reproductive organs or cause sterility.
Embryos intended to be frozen are created through IVF. If a couple is uncomfortable fertilizing all eggs retrieved through this process, the remaining eggs can be frozen and stored for fertilization at a later date.
Couples who do not plan to or cannot attempt pregnancy again but still have frozen embryos often anonymously donate those embryos to couples who are unable to conceive on their own.
