Freezing and preservation

Embryo freezing

Freezing embryos involves performing in vitro fertilization (IVF) in the laboratory by combining the retrieved eggs with a semen sample. This technique allows for the preservation of embryos until desired and provides the opportunity to assess their genetic viability before freezing.

What are the benefits of freezing embryos?

Stopping time

Similar to egg freezing, embryo freezing offers the opportunity to preserve the quality of your eggs and fertility. The key distinction is that in embryo freezing, the eggs have already been fertilized, and the resulting embryos are frozen for future use.

ENHANCED TRANSPARENCY AND QUALITY

With embryo freezing, the embryos have already passed through crucial stages, including fertilization, which serve as indicators of their quality. Compared to freezing eggs, this process offers greater transparency into the likelihood of successful conception when the time is right.

Genetic Testing

Genetic Testing

Embryo freezing offers the advantage of performing genetic compatibility testing, which helps reduce the likelihood of high-risk pregnancies and congenital diseases. We can select embryos with a lower risk of genetic disorders, providing the opportunity for a healthier pregnancy.

The process for
freezing embryos

Here is a start-to-finish guide for your embryo freezing itinerary. This is a general map, our experts analyze your case and draw up a personalized action plan with you.

01

Assessment

Start your egg freezing journey with a consultation where your physician will conduct blood tests, sperm studies, and physical exams. Over the following month, a customized treatment plan will be designed based on the results.

02

Ovarian Stimulation

The next step is to stimulate your ovaries to produce a greater number of eggs by self-administering hormone injections. Regular monitoring through blood tests and ultrasounds will help adjust the dosage if necessary. Once the eggs reach full maturity, an injection will trigger ovulation or egg release. That way we can tell if you need to adjust your dose. Once your eggs have fully matured, an injection will be given that will trigger ovulation or egg release.

03

Egg Retrieval

Approximately 35 hours after the trigger injection, you will undergo a minor surgical procedure to retrieve the eggs. Using a small needle inserted through the vaginal wall the eggs will be carefully extracted from the follicles. With local anesthesia, you can return to your normal activities within 24 to 48 hours. On the day of retrieval, we will also collect a sperm sample from your partner, or alternatively, a sperm donor can be used.

04

Fertilization

Our skilled embryologists assess the sperm and egg samples for fertilization. In certain cases, Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) may be employed, where a single healthy sperm is directly injected into the egg. The resulting embryos are then cultured in incubators for 3 to 5 days before being frozen.

05

Genetic Testing (Optional & at an additional cost)

Prior to freezing, optional Preimplantation Genetic Testing (PGT) can be conducted on the embryos. This highly recommended test screens the embryos for over 400 genetic abnormalities, particularly useful for individuals with a history of genetic conditions. Healthy embryos that pass the genetic test will be selected for freezing.

06

Freezing

Following their growth in incubators, the embryos undergo rapid freezing through vitrification. To ensure optimal preservation, they are stored in liquid nitrogen tanks at our clinic until you are ready to conceive. You will be provided with precise information regarding the number of healthy embryos successfully frozen during the process.

Broadly speaking, eggs and sperm of good quality, but it varies a lot depending on each couple. Schedule an appointment aquí and we'll talk about it calmly.

As long as you want! The annual fee for preservation is $5,000 per year. 

Not at all! The egg capture process can be done regardless of whether you have an intrauterine device or IUD.

A genetic study shows how compatible the sperm is with the egg. With this we can avoid congenital diseases and other types of pathologies.
