Cryopreservation of Gametes | Embryo

Cryopreservation of Gametes

Many couples choose cryopreserve and viable embryos which will remain as unused once the embryo is transferred. This allows them to actually try again after a very short period of time. When this is the case, many couples have the opportunity to actually try especially if the initial cycle did not work meaning they didn’t become pregnant. It is also a good chance for those who got pregnant and they have a desire to have another child in a future date. A third of the couples get embryos frozen and on average, each couple has three to four embryos. The Cryopreservation of embryos and gametes is the best way to guarantee that one will be able to have children.

The Cryopreservation of embryos and gametes actually involves the storage of embryos which are frozen and are kept at low temperatures. When thawing is done, three quarters of the embryos actually survive and are ready for transfer into the uterus of a woman.
