Embryo Banking


Why Choose Embryo Banking?

Research has shown that

poor prognosis patients who have banked embryos from three cycles or more, are more likely to have a successful outcome

It allows patients

to create and freeze their chromosomally normal embryos today for the family they desire in the future

For women

of advanced maternal age or with diminished ovarian reserve it increases the likelihood for subsequent embryo transfers to have the family they desire

Embryo banking is a safe and effective fertility treatment for patients who wish to build their family two feet at a time. FISD offers embryo banking options at discounted prices to help patients plan for their future and their desires of having a family.

With Embryo Banking and PGT-A, we can help increase the chance of a successful outcome for women with diminished ovarian reserve who seeks to undergo IVF using their own eggs.

Embryo Banking involves undergoing at least two egg retrieval procedures in succession. Many patients opt for 3 egg retrievals. Our protocol is to bank embryos at the blastocyst (day 5/6) stage after embryo biopsy for Preimplantation Genetic Testing for Aneuploidy (PGT-A) is performed. After each egg retrieval, embryos are cultured to the blastocyst stage at which time embryo biopsy is performed for PGT-A. Following the biopsy, the embryo is frozen using vitrification (flash-freezing method).

The purpose for the PGT-A is to determine which embryos are chromosomally normal and therefore most likely to develop into a healthy pregnancy. These blastocysts can stay cryopreserved for many years thereby preserving your reproductive potential.
