Cryopreservation of Embryos, Sperm, and Oocytes
How does it work?
Egg, Sperm, & Embryo FreezingCryopreservation is the systematic freezing and storage of eggs, sperm, or embryos, allowing the preserved cells to be used later. Individuals or couples may choose cryopreservation to preserve fertility during cancer treatments or delay a pregnancy attempt until sometime in the future.

First step towards infertility is correct diagnosis and NOT treatment.
Cryopreservation cannot guarantee a successful pregnancy in the future. Freezing and thawing may cause the eggs to die and get damaged. Also, frozen eggs carry the chance of contamination during cryofreezing leading to complications later.
You or your partner can change your mind at any time during the cryopreservation process. If one of the two partners decides not to proceed with the process, the IVF doctor can’t legally continue. If one partner decides not to proceed after the embryos are already frozen, the doctor might suggest a waiting period to be sure. Then the embryos will be taken out of storage and allowed to perish.
In some cases, couples may decide to not have a baby and may not have use for the frozen embryos. If you don’t use frozen embryos, you can:
- Inform the fertility clinic to discard them. The fertility clinic will remove them from the freezer and allow them to thaw, making them no longer viable.Donate them to research.
- Donate them for educational purposes (for example, to help train future fertility professionals).
