Freeze egg-sperm-embryo


Egg, Sperm, and Embryo Freezing in Iran are currently being performed in a number of fertility centers and clinics in Iran. The highly specialized medical team, state-of-the-art equipment, and affordable prices are all some reasons for which, many people from across the globe have chosen Iran for their medical and aesthetic treatments.


What is Egg, Sperm, and Embryo Freezing?

The technique of cold preservation or cryopreservation makes it possible to preserve eggs, sperm, and embryos for several years for future use.


Sperm Freezing in Iran

It has been years now since freezing sperms in Iran have helped many to retain their fertility for a longer period. There are many reasons for which men might tend to freezing sperm technique. In order to preserve fertility, a man may alternative to freezing sperm. For example, if somebody is going through chemotherapy, the sperms are at definite harm. Radiation can be as harmful to the sperms as chemotherapy. In these cases, before starting any treatment, a freezing of the sperm can be planned and applied. If after his chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatment, the patient is no longer able to produce healthy sperm, the frozen samples will be used to perform fertility methods such as IVF (in vitro fertilization) or IUI (intrauterine insemination).


Egg freezing in Iran

Women all around the world normally become less productive in terms of oocyte production from the age of 35. On the other hand, many women have healthy oocytes but are not ready to become mothers and tend to save their eggs for the future use.

 One of the ways to preserve fertility is to store ovarian tissues or their oocytes (immature or mature) to fertilize them and reinject them respectively in the future. Vitrification of oocytes is said to be the easiest and most efficient method for preserving fertility for women. Cryopreservation of mature oocytes can be performed as an alternative to freezing embryos. 


Embryo freezing

During the IVF, if the number of embryos obtained is greater than the number of embryos transferred, the supernumerary embryos can be frozen; provided they are healthy and of very good quality. 

Previously, all embryos developed during IVF had to be immediately implanted in the mother's uterus. The new law allows only one to be implanted and the others to be frozen. It consists of immersing the embryos in liquid nitrogen at -196 °C. The temperature drop is extremely rapid and makes it possible to obtain an almost instantaneous vitreous state of the embryos. Thus preserved, the embryos can be transferred later into the uterus, without having to go through the stages of egg retrieval and fertilization again.

In any case, a new IVF attempt will not be made as long as there are frozen embryos left.


In fact, it is a fertility treatment that allows specialists to retrieve and freeze intact eggs / sperm / embryos for future fertilization. If necessary, the frozen egg is removed from the frozen state and fertilized with sperm using in vitro fertilization (IVF) and placed in the uterus.

The cost per embryo / egg / sperm (freeze) is $ 500 and added Each Freeze) Sperm/Egg/Embryo) cryo is 100$.

(egg)Depending on the age of the individual, when the egg is frozen, the probability of getting pregnant after implantation of the fertilized egg is between 30 and 60%. The older a person is when an egg freezes, the less likely he or she is to be born and reproduce. (sperm) Most men make millions of new sperm every day, but men older than 40 have fewer healthy sperm than younger men.(embryo) If an aged woman is producing a good number of good quality embryos, the pregnancy rate is almost the same as that of young women.

Ovarian storage test: To determine the quantity and quality of eggs, the concentrations of follicle-stimulating hormone and estradiol are measured on the third day of the menstrual cycle.
Ultrasound of the ovaries: In order to observe, evaluate and evaluate the function of the ovaries, ultrasound of the ovaries is recommended.
