What is Embryo Freezing?

Embryo freezing is a valuable option for couples and individuals who are planning for a family but are not ready to conceive at the moment. Embryo freezing, also known as cryopreservation, is a process in which embryos are frozen at extremely low temperatures in order to preserve them for future use.

Embryo freezing is also a great option for couples and individuals who have undergone in-vitro fertilization (IVF) and have leftover embryos. IVF is a process in which eggs are fertilized with sperm in a laboratory setting, and the resulting embryos are then implanted into the uterus.

However, not all embryos will be suitable for implantation, or couples may choose to only use a certain number of embryos, leaving the rest unused. Instead of discarding the remaining embryos, freezing them allows for the possibility of using them in the future. This can provide a sense of security and peace of mind, knowing that they have the option to have additional biological children without having to go through the entire IVF process again.

Our fertility service provider offers embryo freezing as an option for couples and individuals who have undergone IVF. We understand that the decision to freeze embryos can be a difficult one, and our team of reproductive specialists is here to provide you with the support and guidance you need to make an informed decision that is right for you.

The freezing process itself is similar to the one for embryos obtained from other methods. It will be thawed when the couple is ready to use them, and then the thawed embryos will be implanted in the uterus or used for IVF.
