Often, people who underwent In Vitro Fertilization or IVF and completing the first cycle of their program will have quite some excess or unused embryos. An embryo is an unborn baby in the process of development. It is the stage of human growth wherein a tiny single-celled fertilized egg will begin to divide and start to resemble a newborn baby.
It is a common practice for these unused embryos to be donated for the others’ treatment or be preserved for your personal use in the future. With the combination of medical and technological advances, preserving embryos for a longer period have been made possible.
