Are your frozen IVF embryos alive after they have been thawed ?

 


Most patients are worried about the viability of frozen embryos . They believe the success rate with fresh embryos is better than with frozen embryos. After all, they know that fresh fruits are better than frozen fruits, and they confuse the two ! However, embryos are not fruits, because the freezing technology used is very different.

In the past, it is true that the pregnancy rate with frozen embryos was lower than with fresh embryos, because the traditional method of freezing embryos using slow freezing would often kill the cells in the embryo. This is because the water in the cells would form ice crystals, which would kill the blastomeres.

However, the with new technique of vitrification or ultra rapid freezing ( which is used routinely now), the damage rate is virtually zero , if done in a good lab by an experienced and expert embryologist.

Now it is true that vitrification is not an easy technique to master, and most embryologists are not good at being able to vitrify embryos. It requires a lot of skill and expertise and experience, and many junior embryologists kill embryos while vitrifying and thawing them, because they haven’t learnt how to do this well.

However, in a good clinic like ours, with an experienced embryologist like Dr Sai, we can confidently reassure our patients that our survival rate is 100% point .

The question patients want to know is – How do I know that my embryo is viable after it has been frozen and thawed ? One way is to take photos of the embryo after thawing and check this . Live embryos have clear cells; and if the blastomeres are dark, this means they have been killed by the freezing and thawing process.

An even better technique is to keep the thawed embryos in culture for a few hours before actually transferring them. After the thaw, a viable embryo will continue to grow, and you can see for yourself that is alive and viable. For example, a collapsed blastocyst ( which was frozen after collapsing) and remains collapsed when thawed, and which then expands after culturing it in vitro for a few hours , is clearly viable.

If your clinic has frozen your embryos on Day 3, tell them to thaw them, and culture them for another 48 hours to see whether they actually grow and become blastocysts. If they do not, and if they arrest in the laboratory after they've been thawed, there's really no point in transferring them back into the uterus , because this clearly means they're not viable , and there is no point in wasting your money on transferring dead embryos into your uterus.

A simple secret to help you find the best IVF clinic to maximise your IVF success rate



So which is the best IVF center for you ?

A big problem for most IVF patients is they are unable to identify which IVF clinic is good.

They naively assume that all IVF clinics are the same , because most of them are run by famous brand name reputed doctors ; and all claim an equally high success rates . Also, all their websites look very similar ( because they seem to be copied and pasted from each other !)

This is why most patients don't spend enough time and energy in thinking about how to select a good IVF Clinic . They usually select the one which is closest ; the one which is cheapest; the one which has the largest ad; or the one their family doctor sends them to .

This can actually be a dangerous way of choosing a clinic, because the truth is that not all IVF clinics are created equal .

If you end up going to a bad IVF clinic , not only will you waste your money , you'll end up ruining your chances of getting pregnant , because you will lose trust in all IVF clinics !

Here’s a simple trick you can use to help you !

Instead of trying to identify good IVF clinics , use the inversion rule , and start by identifying bad IVF clinics . This is actually easier, because there are far more bad IVVF clinics than good ones.

Here is one simple question you can ask to eliminate the bad IVF clinics . If you do this often enough, you will automatically end up going to a good one !

The hallmark of a bad IVF clinic is they do not provide embryos photos routinely and proactively to all their patients . Thus, if the clinic doesn't provide photos and doesn't do blastocyst transfer routinely , this means it’s a had clinic ( until proven otherwise ).

This simple suggestion will help you identify the right clinic , so that you can get pregnant as quickly as possible
