Cryopreservation in Cyprus

Freezing Eggs/Embryos
Cryopreservation (freezing) is one of the most modern developments in the field of fertility research. This process offers mothers the option to postpone pregnancy by freezing her eggs while she is still fertile or by freezing an embryo to use for a future IVF cycle.

Embryo Preservation
Embryo preservation is a delicate and complex process involving multiple steps. At Cyprus IVF Centre in North Cyprus, the egg is fertilised under controlled conditions within our laboratory. The embryo is then frozen to extremely cold temperatures, using liquid nitrogen. Under such extreme conditions virtually all biological processes cease, include the process of cell death. The embryos can remain dormant until a future time when the pregnancy is wanted. Through a slow thawing process the embryos are revived and the biological processes are resumed.
