Embryo bank

Since 1984, the year in which the first baby was born through the cryopreservation of embryos, this method has been used by millions of couples around the world in assisted reproduction treatments in the search for long-awaited parenthood.

The purpose of this procedure is to have embryos available to be transferred after thawing in a subsequent menstrual cycle, natural or artificially prepared with hormones, which allows to increase the percentage of pregnancy per cycle of stimulation without repeating long and expensive stimulation cycles with gonadotrophins and oocyte aspiration. These embryos are the result of a fertilization in the laboratory or In Vitro, a treatment which is also available at InSer at all major locations in the country.

 In addition, it avoids the disposal of supernumerary embryos, and can prevent the transfer of a high number of embryos, thus reducing the risk of multiple pregnancies.

It is also an alternative when there are adverse maternal conditions for embryonic transfer, as is the case with severe ovarian hyperstimulation.

Required, for both women and men, HIV antibody testing, Hepatitis B surface antigen, Hepatitis C antibodies, serology and IgG/IgM for cytomegalovirus and Chlamydia Trachomatis. In addition, the consent and contract of embryo storage must be completed and signed to avoid potential problems with respect to the property and disposition of the embryos, which inevitably occurs once a member of the couple is missing or upon the dissolution of the couple.

The embryo bank can be your great ally when it comes to achieving a short- and medium-term pregnancy.
