What is vitrification?

1 answer

Vitrification is a flash-freezing technique that has up to 98% survival rate for eggs (oocytes) and embryos, compared low survival rate found with the traditional slow-dunk method. At New Hope Fertility Center, we prefer single embryo transfers to avoid the complications of multiples (twins, etc.). That means you may produce more embryos than you transfer each IVF cycle, and thanks to vitrification’s more than 90% egg and embryo survival rate, you can count on your extra preserved embryos for future use. Whether you are a single woman preserving your fertility, a couple delaying or timing child bearing, or a woman undergoing cancer treatment, you will find vitrification an invaluable option for egg freezing and embryo banking.
