Social Freezing of Oocytes, Semen and Embryos
What you need to know about embryo freezing?
The procedure involves removing eggs from the ovaries, fertilizing them to create embryos, letting them grow for several days and then freezing them.
When thawed, the fertilized eggs — embryos — can be implanted either in the patient or in another person.
Embryo transfer with thawed frozen embryos is widely used today, and pregnancy rates are similar, and sometimes even higher, than with embryos that have not been frozen.
