Cryopreservation at Sridevi Fertility
Sridevi Fertility is one of the most trusted names in cryopreservation techniques for over two decades now. We are equipped with every required infrastructure to support cryopreservation. Our preservation program includes
Embryo Freezing – Infertility treatments often result in multiple embryo generation. We can choose to preserve the good quality embryos to be used in future treatment cycles or for the donation programs.
Egg Freezing – During most infertility treatments, the ovaries are stimulated medically to produce more eggs than they usually do. The healthy eggs that have matured are collected by our fertility specialists after sedating the patient and are then stored in liquid nitrogen.
Sperm Freezing – Sperms too can be preserved for future fertility treatment cycles or for artificial insemination. They can be stored for the donor program as well.
The cryopreservation program at Sridevi Fertility is based on the effective use of scientific methodologies by our expert fertility specialists. We are extremely careful about the entire process and hence come up with multiple tests before we actually decide to preserve any of these substances. We have enough transparency in our discussion with the couples about sperms or eggs that needs to be preserved or utilized during the treatment. We have the couples involve in our donation program only if they agree to it.
