What is a cryocycle?
The use of frozen (vitrified) embryos for embryo transfer is called a cryocycle. In such a treatment cycle, superovulation is not stimulated, but the endometrium is prepared (in the natural cycle) with its own ovulation.
The effectiveness of pregnancy is not lower than when using fresh embryos.
Embryo freezing process
Vitrification is a type of embryo freezing, which consists of stopping all biological processes in cells by freezing and further storing them at low temperatures, and guarantees a very high level of cell viability.
The essence of vitrification is the use of high concentrations of a cryoprotectant, due to which it is possible to avoid the formation of ice crystals – the main cause of intracellular damage that accompanied the previous method of freezing embryos. The procedure is carried out at the stage of 5-7 days of embryo maturation (blastocyst stage). When a favorable period for implantation comes, it is thawed and transferred to the body of the expectant mother.
Survey before the start of the program
Your doctor may suggest passing certain tests to optimize preparation for pregnancy. If patients come to the clinic with fresh results of all necessary examinations, this stage of the IVF program may be reduced or excluded.

The advantages of the cryocycle
Cryocycle statistics at ISIDA clinic
ISIDA clinic has 25 years of experience in the treatment of infertility. The high efficiency of Assisted Reproductive Technologies methods used in the clinic is confirmed by statistical data:
Specialists of ISIDA clinic overcome infertility in 49% of cases in “fresh” cycles;
in 45% – in cycles with vitrified embryos;
in 62% – in cycles in which all the resulting embryos were frozen (freezeall)
(average combined values from all age groups are indicated).
We follow the latest protocols and recommendations, according to which it is optimal to use 1 embryo for frozen embryo transfer. The efficiency of the cryocycle using 1 embryo reaches 60%.
Why you should entrust your dream of having a baby to ISIDA clinic?
We have been helping families to have children whose birth would be impossible without the help of doctors since 1994.
We have our own molecular cytogenetic laboratory, which specializes in reproductive disorders and genetic diagnostics.
We carry out a thorough diagnosis and, if necessary, endoscopic preparation before the use of assisted reproductive technologies.
The success of treatment in our clinic is at the level up to 81,6%, which is confirmed by the annual international professional expertise.
