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 the long-awaited maternity and paternity.
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. 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 adverse maternal conditions are given for embryonic transfer, as is the case with severe ovarian hyperstimulation.
It is required, both for women and men, for 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 storage of embryos must be completed in order to avoid potential problems with respect to the property and the disposition of the embryos, which inevitably occurs at the moment of missing a member of the couple or the dissolution of it.
The embryo bank can be your great ally when it comes to getting a short and medium term pregnancy.
