Egg and Embryo Storage

At Cryos, we can store your eggs and embryos for future use.

Why store my eggs?

Cryos understands that sometimes after IVF treatment eggs or embryos remain, and you may prefer to store them for future use. When IVF is successful and a pregnancy is achieved, you might be ready for a second child just a few years later. Embryo and egg freezing offers you the chance of getting pregnant more than once from one cycle of ovarian stimulation.

Egg (oocyte) storage is also important for women that are approaching advanced reproductive age or have medical conditions such as cancer that may affect fertility. Storing frozen eggs gives women the opportunity to preserve their fertility for future use. 

There are many reasons for storing your embryos or eggs at Cryos:

  • Limited storage space available at your clinic
  • Limited time allowed for storage at your clinic
  • Our competitive storage fees
  • Our egg & embryo freezing experience
  • You have not yet selected your IVF clinic
  • Our laboratory is closely monitored with top-notch security

Patients who choose Cryos must complete a storage agreement which specifically defines the terms of storage and costs involved.  

Secure Embryo & Egg Storage 

Your embryos and eggs can be stored safely for as long as you need at Cryos. In our state-of-the-art embryology lab, the storage tanks are completely independent of electricity and are monitored around-the-clock to ensure the highest possible degree of safety. Your frozen embryos or eggs can be stored securely for years to come.

Transferring Your Embryos & Eggs to Cryos

Transferring embryos and eggs to our facilities is a secure, efficient and convenient process. The embryos and eggs are shipped in liquid nitrogen dry shipper tanks via approved and reliable services. These shippers are safe for transfer for at least 7 days but are sent within the U.S. using priority overnight delivery. You will receive confirmation that your embryos or eggs have arrived at our facility.

Please see our prices for embryo and frozen egg storage. Storage fees are the same for patients storing both embryos or eggs. These fees are not dependent of the number of eggs or embryos stored.  Storage payments are due in advance. If you have any questions, please contact us today.
