Freezing

Freezing

Freezing, or cryopreservation, is a medical technique that includes preserving eggs, sperms, embryos, or tissues at extremely low temperatures to halt biological activity. These preserved cells or tissues can later be thawed and used in medical treatments or reproductive scenarios. The process involves rapid freezing using a cryoprotectant solution, which protects the biological material from ice formation during freezing.

How Shukan Hospital & IVF Centre in Ahmedabad can help?

Egg Freezing

Egg freezing is a fertility preservation technique that allows women to preserve and store their eggs for future use. This procedure is often chosen by individuals who want to delay childbearing for personal, medical, or career reasons. By freezing eggs, women can have the option to conceive a child later in life, ensuring their fertility is preserved for a more convenient time.

Sperm Freezing

Sperm freezing, also known as cryopreservation, is a medical procedure that allows men to store sperm samples at extremely low temperatures for future use. This technique preserves sperm’s viability and quality, providing a means of fertility preservation for men undergoing medical treatments that may affect their reproductive capabilities, such as chemotherapy or radiation. Additionally, sperm freezing can be beneficial for men who wish to delay fatherhood for personal or professional reasons.

Embryo Freezing

Embryo freezing, also known as embryo cryopreservation, is a process that involves preserving embryos by cooling them to sub-zero temperatures. This technique is widely used in fertility treatments, particularly in vitro fertilization (IVF), to store embryos for future use. Embryos are typically frozen at the blastocyst stage, around five to six days after fertilization when they are most viable. By freezing embryos, couples and individuals can plan their pregnancies according to their personal and medical needs, providing flexibility and peace of mind.

Tissue preservation in Onco-Fertility

Onco-fertility is a medical field that combines oncology (cancer treatment) and reproductive medicine. It focuses on fertility preservation for cancer patients whose treatments might impair reproductive function. Common cancer therapies like chemotherapy and radiation can negatively affect ovarian and testicular function, posing challenges for future fertility.

Tissue Freezing

Tissue freezing, also known as cryopreservation, is a medical procedure that involves preserving biological tissues, such as embryos, eggs, sperm, and other body tissues, at very low temperatures. By freezing these biological materials, they can be stored indefinitely, maintaining their viability and integrity until they are required for future use, whether for medical treatments, research, or fertility preservation.
