Freezing of The Genetic Material (Cryopreservation)

Cryopreservation means freezing of the genetic material (eggs, sperm and embryos) at a low temperature. It is a safe and verified method, which does not leave any impact on the ability of the egg's ability to be fertilized, the spermatozoon's ability to fertilize, or the embryo's development. Our clinic iVF Riga uses the method of vitrification (ultra-fast freezing), which enables us to preserve genetic material with up to a 98% survival rate after thawing. Cryopreservation allows conceiving a child in a few years, including people who have undergone oncological treatment.

Who particularly needs cryoconservation of eggs and sperm?

The freezing of the genetic material (cryopreservation) is carried out if you wish to postpone the birth of children or when diagnosing cancer and cryopreservation must be done to preserve the genetic material. Patients with oncological diseases before chemotherapy and radiation therapy are recommended cryopreservation of reproductive cells to preserve fertility and to avoid the need for donor sperm or eggs.

iVF Riga clinic offers freezing and storing of genetic material – eggs, sperm and embryos. Frozen material can be stored up to 10 years.
