Embryo Freezing


Dr. Supriya Puranik is a reputed IVF specialist in Pune with over two decades of experience in infertility treatment. She is a pioneer in using innovative reproductive technologies, such as embryo freezing, to assist couples struggling with infertility to fulfill their dreams of having a child.

Embryo Freezing:

Embryo freezing, often known as cryopreservation, is a technique where an embryo in the early stages of development is frozen and preserved for future use. Cryopreservation is a useful option for couples who want to delay pregnancy due to personal, professional, or medical reasons, allowing the woman to conceive later.

The Process:

The embryo freezing process begins with embryo preparation by in vitro fertilization (IVF). The embryos are closely monitored after fertilization to determine the best quality for freezing. After that, the embryos are briefly immersed in a unique solution that dehydrates them to protect them during freezing.

The subsequent stage includes cooling the embryo at a specific rate, gradually lowering the temperature to -196°C. After that, the embryos are frozen and kept in a safe storage space known as a cryovial at a fertility clinic.

When patients are ready to start their family, the previously frozen embryos are thawed, and the best-quality embryos are transferred to the woman’s uterus to allow her to conceive.


Embryo freezing provides several benefits for women and couples, including:

  • Ability to Delay Pregnancy:

Couples who want to delay pregnancy can do so without worrying about age-related deterioration in fertility. By freezing their embryos, they can have children when ready without worrying about their biological clock ticking.

  • Improved Pregnancy Outcomes:

Embryos that undergo cryopreservation have a better chance of a successful pregnancy compared to fresh embryos in some cases. Research has shown that the chances of pregnancy rates are higher when frozen embryos are used than fresh ones.

  • Multiple Chances for Conception:

By freezing multiple high-quality embryos, patients have multiple opportunities to conceive, meaning lower associated costs and physical burdens further down the line.
