Fertility Preservation Services - Egg, Embryo & Sperm Freezing | Conceptia | Conceptia



Hero Background Image

Fertility preservation refers to the freezing (cryopreservation or vitrification) of eggs, sperm or embryos to be used later by the patient or couple. Fertility preservation may be recommended for medical reasons, for instance in cases where illness or medication may lead to future fertility complications or damage the health of your reproductive system.

Conceptia offers various fertility preservation techniques that can maximize your conception chances for the future.

Conceptia only provides embryo freezing, not egg freezing.

Sperm Freezing

Sperm freezing can be used by male patients who may experience fertility issues in the future, patients with low sperm concentration or patients who won’t be available to produce a sperm sample on the day of their partner's egg retrieval procedure. Sperm generally reacts well to the cryopreservation process, and frozen sperm samples can be preserved for years.

Our fertility specialists at Conceptia can discuss this procedure with you and help you determine whether this is an option you wish to pursue.

Embryo Freezing

The freezing of embryos can be considered to improve the outcome of pregnancies, to attempt a second pregnancy from the same IVF treatment, to avoid some medical risks, or when a fresh embryo transfer is not a viable option. The embryos must be of sufficient quality before freezing, to ensure maximal chances of survival after thawing and implantation. Transfer of frozen embryos are considered the most effective method of preserving fertility and have been used successfully for many years.
