Embryo Freezing

Assisted reproduction offers numerous options that couples can consider and embryo freezing is one such option that can help them have kids at a later stage in life. Our experience has shown that embryo freezing adds an important dimension to the assisted reproduction process by offering the following advantages.

 

The Process of Embryo Freezing

 

Couples desirous of undergoing embryo freezing will need to give written consent for embryos to be frozen. And they are usually freezed through IVF or ICSI method and those of suitable quality be frozen.  The consent form details the following points which need to be predefined at the start of the treatment:

 

  • Length for which the embryos need to be stored
  • Utilization of embryos after the sudden death of the couple?
  • Whether the embryos can be used for donation, bio-medical research or for self use only needs to be defined at the start?

In normal practice, embryo survival is defined by the number of viable cells in an embryo after thawing. If an embryo has more than fifty percent of the cells that are viable, it is said to have “survived”. If less than fifty percent of the cells are viable, then the embryo is said to have “partially survived”. And if all the cells are dead at thaw, then the embryo is labelled as “atretic”.

 

Our experience shows that approximately 65-70% of embryos survive thaw and those produced through ICSI, tend to survive better than conventional insemination. In case, the treatment of the patient needs to be cancelled after egg collection, couples may be able to store their embryos for future use.
