If your IVF cycle fails, you can undergo complete IVF cycle yet again or may choose to use your frozen embroys (Cryopreserved) retrieved during previous IVF cycle.

So to better be safe than sorry, they wish to get Preimplantation Genetic Testing done to screen the embryos for the presence of specific diseases and defects. This genetic test takes ample time for the result to come. Until the results are out, the embryo is cryopreserved and if everything is okay, then the embryo is transferred to the uterus for the implantation and continuity of pregnancy from thereon. 

  • Wish to undergo an elective procedure: In current scenario, many couples consider it by choice. With the advent of advanced technology, many couples opt for all freeze IVF cycle which not only allows time for Preimplantation genetic testing in order to screen embryo for the specific diseases and defects, let you undergo necessary treatments and helps you avoid Ovarian stimulation.
