If you’re in a relationship, freezing embryos for future use may be an option.
Embryo freezing involves completing an IVF treatment cycle and freezing the embryos. Frozen embryos can be stored for 5 years (with extensions available).
It’s important you discuss all your options, including embryo freezing, with your oncologist, fertility specialist and our counsellors. When embryos are created, both partners own those embryos and need to make decisions together about what happens to them. If a relationship breaks down, this could mean either or both partners lose access to the embryos.
