Embryo cryopreservation is a process used for preservation of surplus good quality embryos that can be used for subsequent cycles.
During IVF, ICSI treatments, the finest embryos are selected and implanted in the womb. In case any good quality ‘surplus’ embryos are left, they are preserved by freezing it in liquid nitrogen at a temperature of -1960C in a specialized chamber for future usage. It has been documented that cryopreserved embryo can be retrieved and be used in successful pregnancy even after 10 years. However, young patients’ embryo freezing survival rate is 75% higher than of older patients.
The process at MAGS is carried out by highly qualified embryologists, following international standards.
