If patients have many embryos, they can preserve their embryos for the next cycle by freezing. There are two methods to preserve embryos. The first method is slow freezing which will be used when patients want to freeze embryo on Day 1. The other method is Vitrification. This is the newest method of freezing embryos to reduce damages in embryos. Mostly we will use this method to freeze embryos on Day 5.
Why embryo freezing is important?
We recommend patients to freeze their embryos so that if this cycle of ICSI fails, they still have embryos enough to do Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET). The women do not have to go through all ICSI processes. Plus the price of FET is less than the whole ICSI program.
