In IVF procedures ovaries are stimulated to produce 10-15 eggs. All these eggs can lead to healthy embryos after fertilization. Only one or two embryos are transferred. Remaining spare embryos can be preserved for future use by freezing these embryos.
WHO ARE SUITABLE CANDIDATES:-
All IVF cycles which have spare good quality embryos can be benefitted by cryofreezing of embryos.
When embryo transfer is cancelled in same cycle due to various indications and unavoidable circumstances all embryos can be frozen
Now there is a movement for elective freezing of all embryos because results are equal or even better in frozen cycles
For fertility preservation when immediate pregnancy is not possible due to medical or social reasons like chemotherapy for cancers or carrier choice.
