Find Success Stories of Frozen Embryo Transfers
The use of frozen embryos is common during IVF, in vitro fertilization, treatment. Frozen embryos may be used for several reasons. A couple could have surplus embryos from previous cycles or there may be frozen embryos from donor eggs. Regardless of the source, it is possible to have frozen embryo transfer success stories.
New Hope Fertility Center uses the cutting edge embryo freezing method of vitrification. Vitrification flash freezes embryos, instantaneously reducing the temperature from 98.6 degrees to negative 320 degrees. This process protects embryos in two ways:
- Prior to freezing, water is removed from the embryos and a cryoprotectant added. Much of the damage done during traditional freezing methods is due to the formation of ice crystals. By removing water from the embryo, the chance of crystal formation is significantly reduced.
- Traditional freezing methods gradually cool embryos to their storage temperature, setting the stage for ice crystal formation. By reducing the amount of time in the cooling process, the likelihood of crystal formation is significantly reduced.
This state of the art freezing protocol has influenced a number of frozen embryo success stories. With vitrification, the 98% of embryos survive the freezing and process in contrast with 55% with traditional methods.
The positive results of frozen embryo transfers can be seen in our success rates:
For individuals under 35 years old who are not using donor eggs:
- 37% of cycles using fresh embryos resulted in a live birth
- 44% of cycles using frozen embryos resulted in a live birth
For all individuals that are using donor eggs:
- 62.5% of cycles using fresh embryos resulted in a live birth
- 64.5% of cycles using frozen embryos resulted in a live birth
As shown above, our success rates are actually higher using frozen embryos than with fresh embryos. This shows how valuable the use of vitrification is to preserve embryos to be used in future cycles. Find out how frozen embryo transfer success stories can be a part of your fertility care plan.
