The technique of embryo vitrification is an improvement on the older embryo freezing technique of slow freezing of the embryos. The pregnancy rates reported with cryopreservation are the same as those seen with fresh embryo transfer. Indeed, we have confirmed this with our work at The Bridge Clinic. It is normal to generate more than two embryos following IVF treatment. The spare embryos can be vitrified for transfer two or three months later if a pregnancy is not achieved in the index cycle. This means that the couple has another chance at a pregnancy without having to go through the stress of repeat ovarian stimulation.
