In some cases, additional embryos are created than what is needed for the embryo transfer. As mentioned in the previous step we usually transfer 1-2 embryos to your womb. When we have additional embryos, they can be cryopreserved (frozen) and used for another cycle.
Sometimes embryos must be cryopreserved for medical reasons so that an embryo biopsy is done.
In addition, all embryos will be cryopreserved if the embryo transfer has to be postponed due to inadequate endometrium, inappropriate serum progesterone or serious hyperstimulation of the ovaries.
There is an extra charge for embryo freezing. Our clinic will provide you with the details related to freezing.
