Following an in vitro fertilisation (IVF) procedure, there are often embryos that remain unused. Cryopreservation is a technique that allows you to freeze such embryos for up to ten years. Consequently, these embryos can be used in a future IVF cycle without the female partner having to undergo another round of fertility medication. When a couple does decide to use a cryopreserved embryo to achieve conception, the embryo must first be thawed and then implanted in the uterine cavity.
What Is Cryopreservation of Embryos?
Why Choose Cryopreservation of Embryos?
Cryopreservation may be a worthwhile option for couples embarking on an in vitro fertilisation (IVF) routine. Here’s why.
Conception in the Future
Cryopreservation allows you to freeze your fertility in time. By cryopreserving embryos, you have the liberty to plan a family at your own pace, with minimal medication and effort in recurrent IVF cycles.
On Cloudnine, we recommend cryopreservation when we notice inadequate endometrial development, which could potentially hamper embryo implantation. By cryopreserving embryos until the uterine cavity can sustain implantation, you can boost your chances of conception.
Is Cryopreservation of Embryos Right for Me?
Cryopreservation is well-suited for those who have a history of infertility. It is a technique that allows you to grow your family when you’re ready, without the emotional and physical baggage of additional fertility medication. The success of an in vitro fertilisation (IVF) cycle is dependent on multiple considerations. Thus, if you have had repeated episodes of unsuccessful fertility treatments, cryopreservation could lend you hope.
What Are the Steps of Cryopreservation of Embryos?
Cryopreservation essentially involves just a few additional steps after an in vitro fertilisation (IVF) procedure.
What Are the Risks of Cryopreservation of Embryos?
The routine risks associated with cryopreservation generally stem from gaps that arise during the execution of the procedure. On Cloudnine, we labour over every little detail involved in cryopreservation, to ensure that your risks are minimised while your experience is one to remember.
Embryos are volatile and susceptible to damage when they are thawing, and that’s where the risk lies. If embryos are not thawed correctly, they can be encumbered by ice shards, and be damaged as a result. On Cloudnine, our advanced technologies are tailored to thaw embryos perfectly, ensuring that their survival rates are optimised.
Death of Cells
An embryo is made up of tens of cells, and sometimes, the thawing process could destroy some of them. However, a 100-cell embryo can usually withstand such weathering, and still be strong enough to survive inside the uterine cavity.
They say, ‘Never lose Hope’
Dr. Manju Nair was my doctor here at Cloudnine. I have a 9-year-old daughter but could not conceive for the 2nd time. After coming to Cloudnine not only were my spirits uplifted but my hope of conceiving after these many years turned into reality 🙂
Positivity spread across to enlighten our hearts
It was a good experience at Cloudnine. Dr. Uma is one of the best doctors in the city. She was very understanding of our situation and gave us a consultation in a very calm manner with much clarity. The atmosphere in Cloudnine is very positive and welcoming.
The touch of genuine care
The doctor assigned to us showed genuine care towards us and provided the best opinion, Dr. Uma explained all the processes involved with complete compassion. The environment was very comfortable. We give credit to cloudnine for this impressive treatment.
A great experience in making
The staff was immensely supportive, right from the support-desk staff, the nurses, to the doctors. I was guided and helped wholeheartedly. The entire team equally contributed to this great experience. I thank you all for it.
Dr. Manju Nair Has a Divine Persona
I don’t have enough words to describe Dr. Manju Nair’s qualities adequately. She is simply the best. She is confident, caring, friendly, positive and has some kind of magic in her hands. Among all the fertility specialists we met, she shone through with her divine persona. Dr. Nair’s vibrant personality made us feel comfortable and I thank her and her team for the wonderful care they took at every step of our treatment. Hats off to them all!
Dr. Manju Nair Is the Friendliest Doctor We Have Ever Met
This past year has been a wonderful journey for us. Dr. Manju Nair has helped us navigate highs and lows, and is the most honest and friendly doctor we have ever met. ‘Thank you’ doesn’t quite encapsulate the gratitude we have for her, and we are indebted to her for all she has done for us.
Coming to Cloudnine Fertility, Old Airport Road Was the Best Decision of My Life
I think I made the best decision of my life by coming to Cloudnine Fertility, Old Airport Road and meeting Dr. Manju Nair. She listened to my concerns with immense patience and calmed my fears about the scans I would have to undergo on my way to conception. A big thanks to her for tolerating the fuss and frenzy I inevitably made during each scan. Dr. Nair proposed a wonderful fertility treatment, due to which, I have now conceived twins. My husband, my family and I are grateful to her, and I would recommend any couple struggling to conceive, to meet her. Also, a big thanks to the support staff for being so considerate and taking such good care of me!
