What is Cryopreservation

Cryopreservation means freezing and this is a commonly used procedure across fertility centres. First of all, we commonly freeze sperm. This is done in cases where the husband tends to be traveling over a period of time and is not available at the time of IUI Process or IVF Process. Sometimes when men have cancer, before chemotherapy we advice them to freeze sperm so that they can save it for later use and in this case we freeze at least two or three or maybe more such sperm samples. Sperm freezing is also done during an IVF procedure as a backup just in case the man is not able to make it at the time of the egg pickup. So these are the instances where we freeze sperm.

We do egg freezing for women, who wish to store their eggs for later use. If they’re planning to delay their pregnancies or planning to delay getting married.

We also freeze embryos very commonly, because we tend to do more frozen embryo transfers and in these cases all the embryos are frozen. Or sometimes we may have done a fresh embryo transfer and there may be extra embryos and in those cases we freeze the embryos too.

Sometimes couples ask us how long, embryos can be frozen or sperms can be frozen.

They can be frozen for any length of time as long as you wish for them to be frozen and nothing happens to them in the mean time. With vitrification, which is the procedure used today, 98% of embryos survive thawing. So it is a very effective procedure for embryo freezing and thawing.

Cryopreservation FAQ's

What is the best age to freeze your eggs?

Women who freeze their eggs before age 35 have a better chance of a successful pregnancy than those who freeze their eggs after age 35.

How long can embryos be cryopreserved?

Frozen embryos are stored and monitored at hospital facilities, usually a lab, or commercial reproductive medicine centers. They can be safely preserved for 10 years and even longer.

Is freezing your eggs a painful procedure?

There are some elements of egg freezing that can be uncomfortable, but the experience is not painful for most women in our hands and is very safe. 

Why is sperm cryopreservation done?

Sperm cryopreservation (“sperm freezing”) has been used widely since the 1970s to treat couples with infertility. Sperm freezing is principally used to store sperm in patients undergoing cancer therapy and play a vital role in treating couples with infertility.

What is the process of embryo cryopreservation?

In the slow-freezing method, lab embryologists place embryos in a special machine that slowly cools them in stages. They then add cryoprotectants and once the embryos are frozen, they are stored in liquid nitrogen at -321 degrees Fahrenheit. The entire process takes about two hours.

Is it too late to freeze my eggs at 40?

Egg freezing typically works best for women in their 20s to 30s, and is not generally recommended for women older than 38 years. The biological clock cannot be reversed by oocyte cryopreservation in women older than 40

What is embryo freezing?

Embryo freezing, or cryopreservation, is a process that freezes and stores fertilized eggs for later use. It can help people preserve fertility and have options for pregnancy later in life. 

How long can sperm be cryopreserved?

Frozen semen can be stored for as long as 50 years without additional sperm deterioration beyond that caused by the original freezing process.

At what age should I freeze my sperm?

Any person between the ages of 18 and 25 should freeze their sperm. You never know what kind of environmental exposures you'll come across or what health conditions could occur. Sperm tend to be healthiest at this stage of life.
