Embryo Sharing

Embryo Sharing / Freezing Program

Embryo freezing is a medically accepted way to preserve the possibility of fertility. First, the ovaries are stimulated to mature multiple eggs. Doctors remove the mature eggs and fertilize them in the lab with sperm from a partner or donor to create embryos. The fertilization process is called in vitro fertilization (IVF). Embryos are then frozen for future use. The steps required to freeze embryos take between two and six weeks.
