What is Embryo Banking?

Embryo Banking
Science is giving women more and more choices for family building. With recent advances in assisted reproductive technologies, women can now preserve their fertility. They can choose the right time to have babies. Options such as egg freezing, sperm freezing, and embryo freezing are getting more popular. A lot of celebrities have come forward with their experiences with IVF, like egg and embryo freezing. Michele Obama, Gordon Ramsay, Kim Kardashian, Chrissy Teigen, Celine Dion and many more. Clinics are offering these services in varied ranges of costs too. Cyprus has a number of clinics with more affordable costs. Nearly half of the costs in Australia, Europe, and the U.S. Yet they retain the highest standards. The leading clinic in Cyprus is Dunya IVF.

Embryo Cryopreservation

Embryo banking is the process of freezing one or more embryos for future use. Experts also call it embryo cryopreservation and embryo freezing. It involves in vitro fertilization (IVF). IVF specialists doctors remove eggs from the woman’s ovary and combines them with sperm in a laboratory. Fertilization takes place and the embryos are frozen. When the right time comes, they thaw the embryos and transfer them into the woman’s uterus. After transfers in typical IVF cycles, remaining embryos of the right quality are frozen for future use. Later on, the frozen embryos are thawed and transferred without re-stimulating the ovaries. Frozen embryo transfers or FET have the same success rate as fresh transfers. The advantage of FET is the opportunity to optimize the lining of the uterus before implantation.  With FET, the patient incurs less cost and fewer medications.

  1. cancer therapy – men and women may freeze sperm and eggs prior to chemotherapy;
