Fertility preservation is the process of saving or protecting eggs, sperm, or reproductive tissue so that a person can use them to have biological children in the future.
Viera Fertility Center can cryopreserve and store sperm for individuals and couples seeking fertility preservation. Sperm cryopreservation is recommended for:
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.
(microTESE) is a procedure that takes sperm directly from the testicular tissue of a man’s reproductive system. If the male cannot release or make healthy sperm naturally, this medical procedure may be recommended. The testicular tissue is then frozen and stored for future use.
Embryo cryopreservation, also known as embryo freezing, is the most common and successful option for preserving a female’s fertility where eggs are removed from the ovaries. The eggs are then fertilized with sperm from your partner or a sperm donor in the laboratory in a process called in vitro fertilization (IVF). The resulting embryos are cryopreserved and stored for future use.
During an IVF cycle, treatment often results in multiple high-quality embryos. Excess embryos may be cryopreserved and stored for future use:
This procedure is similar to embryo cryopreservation, except that unfertilized eggs are cryopreserved and stored. At a later time, when you are ready to become pregnant, the eggs are then thawed, fertilized with sperm from your partner or a sperm donor in the laboratory with IVF. The resulting embryos are then placed in your uterus or a carrier for you if needed.
Retrieving eggs when you are in your biological prime is an excellent idea for women who wish to become pregnant later in life.

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:
