This is the best modality of embryo freezing. All studies report better survival and higher pregnancy rates with vitrification than standard slow freezing. By this procedure, couples who have ICSI or IVF can increase their chances of having a child and also decrease the cost they bear.

This technique allows the couples to preserve their extra embryos for future transfer without the need to repeat the steps and the cost of the fresh cycle. 

In Rahem Fertility Center, we have the best techniques of embryo vitrification, we have excellent embryo survival (> 95%) and pregnancy rate is above 50% in young females
