Ashakiran Hospital - Embryo Cryopreservation

Embryo cryopreservation is useful for leftover embryos after a cycle of in vitro fertilization. Patients who fail to conceive may become pregnant using such embryos without going through a complete IVF cycle. Or, if pregnancy occurred, they could return later for another pregnancy. Spare oocytes or embryos resulting from fertility treatments may be used for oocyte donation or embryo donation to another woman or couple, and embryos may be created, frozen, and stored specifically for transfer and grant by using donor eggs and sperm.

Embryo cryopreservation is generally performed as a component of in vitro fertilization (also includes ovarian hyperstimulation, egg retrieval, and embryo transfer). The ovarian hyperstimulation is preferably done by using a GnRH agonist rather than human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) for final oocyte maturation since it decreases the risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome with no evidence of a difference in the live birth rate (in contrast to fresh cycles where usage of GnRH agonist has a lower live birth rate).
