What is it?
The preservation of surplus embryos by freezing in liquid nitrogen (temperatures lower than -196°C), in order to allow the couple to transfer them inside the reproductive system of the female partner at a later time, without having to repeat all the steps of a new cycle.
This technique can be applied when the woman’s health makes transfer unadvisable because of the damage it could cause (for example, in the presence of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome), or when the number of embryos obtained is higher than that recommended for transfer.
