In some occasions, a couple will produce extra pre-embryos beyond the ones that were transferred back to the uterus. You will have the option to freeze and store these spare embryos in our facility in order to have the ability of trying to conceive again if the first attempt is not successful.
Preserving embryos prevents you from ever having to start the IVF and PGD processes over again. Even if these spare embryos happened to not be of the desired sex this time around, they may still be frozen and used in the future to further expand a family, especially since declining fertility potential is to be expected over the years. Patients will also have the option of donating embryos to other couples or for research. The above mentioned strategies avoid unnecessarily discarding pre-embryos and promote the best use of family balancing through IVF and PGD technology.
