Cryo cycle

 Vitrification is a type of embryo freezing, which consists in stopping all biological processes in cells by freezing and further storing at low temperatures, and guarantees a very high level of cell viability. Essentially, high concentration of cryoprotectantis used in vitrification to avoid the formation of ice crystals — the main cause of intracellular damage that accompanied the previous method of embryo freezing. The procedure is carried out at the 5th-7th day of embryo maturation. When there is a favorable period for implantation, it is thawed and transferred to the organism of the future mother.

Cryocycle is the use of frozen embryos in repeated treatment cycles. In this treatment cycle, the multifollicular ovarian stimulation is not performed, and this leads to alower hormonal load on the organism of the future mother. This significantly increases the effectiveness of pregnancy onset.

Cryocycle is recommended in the following cases:

  • After failed IVF attempt;
  • If the couple planning the first IVF already plans the second and third child;
  • In the presence of cancer, the treatment of which may affect the further reproductive ability;
  • In the presence of diabetes mellitus or azoospermia in men.

Cryocycle has the following advantages for patients:

  • Significant reduction in the risk of severe IVF complication— ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome. Ovulation stimulation usually results in a large number of eggs that are fertilized, and the resulting embryos are frozen. After 1-2 cycles, it is possible to perform a cryocycle with an efficiency equal to the transfer in the fresh cycle;
  • Reduction of financial costs of patients if the first IVF attempt was failed —cryocycle allows avoiding repeated ovulation stimulation and using expensive drugs;
  • Cryocycle allows patients with a low ovarian reserve to save embryos, and to save eggs if, for personal reasons, a woman does not plan a pregnancy in the coming years.

There is a vast experience in working with vitrified material. It is proved that there are no differences in the frequency of congenital malformations in children born as a result of spontaneous pregnancies and children bornafter frozen embryo transfer. Survival of biomaterial after thawingis very high (at least 95%).

In ISIDA  in cryocycle reached an extremely high level. In two years, the efficiency has doubled;we have up to 60% of successful implantations thanks to the use of the modern method of embryo vitrification. This is a very high level demonstrated by the leading European clinics. In the vast majority of cases, such high ratesare achieved with the transfer of 1 blastocyst/embryo. This became possible due to an exceptional work of the embryological service: specialists, equipment, and methods of work.

Integrated IVF programs in ISIDA include embryocryopreservation even when there is no need for embryo transfer for a later period. One of the obtained embryos is transferred, and others are vitrified for a possible pregnancy in the future.

Having been to many doctors and clinics (to help me with my situation, I was suggested donor oocyte and operation), I turned to Doctor Svitlana Turbanist. She was the only one who suggested medical treatment, and I got pregnant naturally, which I wasn't even hoping for! Doctor Svetlana gave our family a big miracle!! We are extremely grateful to this doctor for her professionalism and experience.

Dear ISIDA! I want to thank your professional team and say thank you for the calmness, empathy and really professional doctors` attitude to their patients. Two years ago I came to Sadovoy Andrey Petrovich, and today I gave birth to two beautiful children. Thanks to the doctor, real professional who treated and performed operations, monitored all processes with a soul. The best doctor in Kiev!

After going through many attempts that didn`t lead to the birth of a child in other clinics, we turned to Svetlana Vladimirovna Shiyanova in ISIDA. We believed that we will succeed this time, from the first meeting with her. And, yes, yes - "It's a girl"!!! Thank you very much for your professionalism and simply human attention!

Andrei Petrovich Sadovoy and I have passed a long way, several difficult failures ... I want to note that it is very important to choose your doctor. He is very professional doctor and sincere person! Sometimes he was too straightforward, (maybe somebody takes it for being rude), but I have never even thought of changing a doctor. Thanks to him, I finally became a mother at 43, despite all the failed predictions! With great warmth we remember him and his assistant Julia Dovgal. We wish you patience and all the best sincerely! With love and great respect to you!
