Embryo and Oocyte Storage

What Is Embryo Storage?

Embryo storage is the cryopreservation of a woman’s embryos for later use. To collect eggs, women are often administered fertility drugs to stimulate the ovaries into producing more eggs. The eggs can then be used in one of many different types of fertilization methods, and the resulting embryos frozen and stored for future treatment cycles or donation. If embryos are to be stored, they are cryopreserved by either the vitrification technique or the more conventional slow-freeze method and transferred to liquid nitrogen-filled tanks for long-term preservation.
