This technology is widely used when a woman has various abnormalities and pathologies of the reproductive system and the body as a whole:

  • functional insufficiency of the ovaries, in which the probability of their production of fertile eggs is reduced;
  • Various pathologies of the ovaries, for the treatment of which partial or complete removal is planned;
  • Oncological diseases – their treatment by chemical or radiation therapy often leads to a deterioration of the reproductive quality of eggs.

Cryopreservation is also prescribed for non-medical reasons. For example, this method is used when planning a delayed pregnancy. The fact is that women’s ovarian reserve is limited and constantly depleted due to monthly ovulation. As a result, by the age of 40 (in most cases) a woman’s body is no longer able to produce fertile eggs, which makes natural conception impossible or very difficult. At the same time, many women in the most productive reproductive period of their lives (from 18 to 35 years) prefer to build a personal life and career, postponing pregnancy to the future. To enable them to become happy mothers at a mature age, their eggs are extracted in advance, fertilized with the sperm of a spouse or donor, then the embryos are cryopreserved and wait for the time when the mother-to-be decides to have a baby.

Embryo freezing is also widely used in in vitro fertilization. Standard IVF protocol involves stimulation of a woman’s ovaries to obtain many oocytes in one menstrual cycle. This is done to use biomaterial for repeated attempts of fertilization, if the first one was unsuccessful. Also, a woman can use this method when planning repeated pregnancies through IVF. In this case, she will not need to undergo another difficult ovarian stimulation procedure, as she has enough healthy cryopreserved embryos in reserve.

This method is also used for couples in which the man has reproductive pathologies or plans to undergo treatment for cancer. In this case, his previously obtained sperm fertilizes the spouse’s germ cells, and the resulting embryos are sent for storage until the woman decides to become pregnant.

This procedure helps you to have a child through surrogacy in the future.
