Embryo Cryopreservation: Becoming A Parent Has Never Been Simpler!

Embryo Cryopreservation“I couldn’t believe that I was pregnant! I felt like I was the luckiest person in the world.”

Rubina (name changed) one of our patients recollected her happiest moment in conversation with our reproductive specialist during her recent checkup. Rubina is in her early forties and she has conceived, thanks to an Assisted Reproductive Technology procedure called ‘Embryo Cryopreservation’ together with IVF, which helped her in getting pregnant even when nature had almost shut its door before her!

By nature, fertility starts to drop in women above the age of 35. Since every woman is born with a finite number of eggs in her ovary, with her each periodic ovulation, the number of egg in her ovaries diminishes. After the age of thirty five, due to a lot of physiological changes happening inside her body, a woman may or may not be able to conceive naturally. In other words, there is a good possibility that she might need the help of Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) to have a baby. Herein, comes the importance of Embryo Cryopreservation, which together with ARTs like IVF, ICSI, IUI offer glimmers of hope to couples, who are a tad older (in terms of biology for conceiving naturally).
