What Is Embryo Cryopreservation?
Embryo cryopreservation or embryo freezing is the process of freezing and storing the extra embryos. The embryos are then thawed and used at a later time.
Why Is Embryo Cryopreservation Done?
There are many reasons a man and woman might choose to freeze and store their embryos:
- They may feel it is a better option than having the extra embryos destroyed.
- It can provide another chance to get pregnant if the IVF process fails the first time. The couple will not have to go through IVF again.
- If the man and woman have a baby, they can use the embryos later to have a second baby.
- The woman can save embryos before she begins treatments, such as for cancer, that might reduce or eliminate her chances of getting pregnant.
When Is Embryo Cryopreservation Done?
Embryos are often frozen from two to six days after they are made.
How Long Can Embryos Be Stored?
Once they are frozen, the embryos are stored in sealed liquid nitrogen tanks. Embryos can be frozen in liquid nitrogen for many years.
How Safe Is Embryo Cryopreservation?
Research has shown that freezing and thawing embryos does not harm the baby. Children born from frozen embryos have no greater rate of birth defects or health problems than children born from embryos that were not frozen.
Does Embryo Cryopreservation Work?
Many healthy babies have been born from embryos that were frozen and thawed. Some babies have been born from embryos frozen for more than 10 years. IVF programs with good cryopreservation techniques have the same pregnancy rates with fresh and frozen embryos.
