Fertility Preservation

Plan For Your Future

Fertility Preservation

When it comes to family planning, nobody knows your timeline better than you. With the option to freeze sperm, eggs and embryos in our state-of-the-art laboratory, you can make sure that you have the optimal chance of getting pregnant when you’re ready.

Sperm, eggs, and embryos are cryopreserved and stored frozen in liquid nitrogen, which keeps the cells safe in a state of ‘suspended animation’ until they are needed. Cryopreserved sperm, eggs, and embryos may be safely stored in liquid nitrogen indefinitely and function normally when thawed or warmed. In fact, frozen embryos that are thawed and used in embryo transfer result in pregnancies at a rate identical to or greater than fresh embryo transfer.

Sperm Cryopreservation

Viera Fertility Center can cryopreserve and store sperm for individuals and couples seeking fertility preservation. Sperm cryopreservation is recommended for:

  • Men with low sperm count who may need back-up samples during treatment
  • Men who travel frequently in preparation for timed intrauterine insemination or IVF in the female partner
  • Fertility preservation in men scheduled to undergo cancer treatment, vasectomy, or other surgeries which may negatively affect fertility.

Sperm cryopreservation through the Viera Fertility Center is an excellent way to prepare for your fertility treatment and feel the security of having a backup sperm sample if needed at egg retrieval.

Egg Cryopreservation

Retrieving eggs when you are in your biological prime is an excellent idea for women who wish to become pregnant later in life. This process is similar to egg retrieval for IVF and these eggs can be frozen and stored until you’re ready to become a mother. When you are ready to have a child, your eggs will be thawed and fertilized with your partner’s sperm or donor sperm and transferred into your uterus or a surrogate. 

Egg Cryopreservation is perfect for women who:

  • Are nearing the age of 35 and desire children later in life
  • Women about to undergo treatment for cancer 

Embryo Cryopreservation

During an IVF cycle, treatment often results in multiple high-quality embryos. Excess embryos may be cryopreserved and stored for future use:

  • When additional children are desired.
  • Following a failed IVF cycle.
