Yes, you can freeze extra embryos. Search for clinics that are capable of freezing extra viable embryos and storing them for you. There will be a fee assessed for freezing and annual storage.

The capacity of cryopreserving extra embryos PROVIDES couples the opportunity to participate in additional attempts of pregnancy without undertaking ovarian stimulation and egg retrieval each time.

If couples have additional frozen embryos after they have completed treatment, they can choose to store the embryos for the unforeseeable future, destroy them, or gracefully donate them to other Intended Parents.

When to Consider Freezing Embryos?

Embryo freezing can be used by any individual or couples, but there are certain groups who may find it more beneficial than others, including

  • Individuals with genetic disorders of ovarian sensitivities, those who are due to undergo chemotherapy, and those who take medications that affect fertility.
  • Women who are approaching advanced reproductive age and are not ready for children yet may also benefit from freezing embryos for later use.

Either of these instances of freezing extra embryos will save you VALUABLE time, money, and most remarkably, you eliminate the physical and emotional pressures of doing the entire IVF cycle all over again.
