Vitrification of ova, zygotes, embryos, blastocyst – is the ultrafast freezing of the germ cells which are not transported to female uterus and their storage in liquid nitrogen till patients decide to unfreeze them. The benefit of using defrosted embryos is the additional artificial fertilisation procedures are not necessary and there is no need to take drugs for stimulation of the ovaries. It also helps preserve the woman`s health.
Sperm vitrification allows you the chance to have children in the future in cases when chemotherapy, roentgenotherapy or operational treatment of oncological diseases is planned. Later, after a man`s recovery his sperm can be defrosted and used for fertilisation of his partner applying the IUI, IVF or ICSI methods for artificial fertilisation.
