Embryo Freezing


Often with IVF and ICSI treatments, people have good quality embryos leftover which they can’t use. Instead of discarding them, they have the option to freeze them to use in the future (in case treatment doesn’t work for example, or they want to try for a sibling).

If you’re having medical treatment that would damage your fertility, such as radiotherapy or chemotherapy, or you have a progressive condition that could affect your fertility in the future, you may want to create embryos with your partner to freeze. If you do this, it's important to be aware that you or your partner can change your minds at any time about using the embryos in treatment.
