What is Embryo Freezing?

Embryo freezing, also known as embryo cryopreservation, is a process used in assisted reproductive technology (ART) to freeze and store embryos at very low temperatures, typically in liquid nitrogen, in order to preserve their viability for future use in fertility treatments such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).

Preserving the Promise of Parenthood: How Embryo Freezing Works

Embryo freezing, also known as embryo cryopreservation, is a complex and carefully controlled process that involves several steps to ensure the successful preservation of embryos for future use in fertility treatments. Here’s a closer look at how embryo freezing works:

Embryo Selection

During an IVF cycle, multiple eggs are retrieved from the ovaries and fertilized with sperm in a laboratory. After a few days of growth, the resulting embryos are assessed for quality and viability. The best-quality embryos are selected for transfer into the uterus, while any excess embryos that are not transferred may be considered for freezing.


Before embryos are frozen, they are carefully dehydrated to remove excess water. This is done to prevent ice crystal formation during the freezing process, which can damage the delicate cellular structure of the embryos. Dehydration typically involves exposure to cryoprotectant solutions that help to protect the embryos during freezing.

Slow Freezing or Vitrification

There are two main methods of freezing embryos - slow freezing and vitrification. Slow freezing involves gradually lowering the temperature of the embryos over several hours, while vitrification involves rapidly freezing the embryos by plunging them into liquid nitrogen. Both methods have their advantages and disadvantages, and the choice of method may depend on various factors such as the quality of the embryos, the expertise of the laboratory, and the clinic's protocols.

Storage in Liquid Nitrogen

Once the embryos have been frozen, they are stored in special containers that are immersed in liquid nitrogen, which maintains a temperature of around -196°C. Liquid nitrogen acts as a preservative, effectively halting all biological processes and preserving the embryos in a state of suspended animation until they are thawed for future use.

Thawing and Transfer

When the time comes for the embryos to be used, they are carefully thawed by gradually warming them to room temperature. Thawing is a critical step that requires precision and expertise to ensure the viability of the embryos. Once thawed, the embryos are transferred into the uterus using a catheter, a procedure similar to a fresh IVF cycle.

Why Choose Embryo Freezing in Your Fertility Journey

Embryo freezing, also known as embryo cryopreservation, offers several benefits and advantages for individuals and couples undergoing fertility treatments. Here are some compelling reasons why you might choose embryo freezing as part of your fertility journey

Preserving Hope: Understanding the Embryo Freezing Procedure for Fertility Preservation

Embryo freezing, also known as embryo cryopreservation, is a process that involves preserving embryos at sub-zero temperatures for future use in fertility treatments. Here’s an overview of the embryo freezing procedure:

Cost of Embryo Freezing

In general, the cost of embryo freezing can be broken down into two main components: the initial cycle costs and the ongoing storage fees. The initial cycle costs typically include the expenses associated with the IVF (in vitro fertilization) or ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection) cycle during which the embryos are created, such as the medications, monitoring, egg retrieval, fertilization, and embryo culture. These costs can vary widely depending on the location and reputation of the fertility clinic, as well as any additional services or technologies used during the IVF or ICSI cycle.

In addition to the initial cycle costs, there may be ongoing storage fees associated with the long-term storage of frozen embryos. These fees typically cover the costs of the cryogenic storage tanks, monitoring, and maintenance of the embryos in the frozen state. The storage fees are usually charged annually or on a monthly basis and can vary depending on the fertility clinic’s policies and practices.

It’s important to note that the cost of embryo freezing may also be influenced by other factors, such as the number of embryos being frozen, the duration of storage, and any additional services or technologies used during the process, such as embryo biopsy for genetic testing. These factors can add to the overall cost of embryo freezing.

It’s recommended to consult with a fertility clinic or reproductive endocrinologist to obtain accurate and up-to-date information on the cost of embryo freezing, as it can vary widely depending on various factors. Some fertility clinics may offer bundled packages or financing options to help make the cost of embryo freezing more affordable for patients. It’s also important to inquire about any additional fees, such as thawing or embryo transfer fees, that may be associated with the process.

Most frequent questions and answers

The cost of freezing embryos can vary depending on the clinic and location. On average, it ranges from BDT 100,000 to BDT 200,000 in Bangladesh.

The best age to freeze embryos is typically before the age of 35, as younger eggs have a higher chance of successful freezing and future implantation.

The cost of IVF in Bangladesh can range from BDT 150,000 to BDT 300,000 per cycle, including consultations, medications, and the procedure itself. Additional costs may apply.
