    Default Another question about how long can they be frozen

    Hello, I have fertilized eggs frozen from 2000 and some frozen from 2001. Would these eggs still be viable to try a transfer with?? How long, is too long??

    Thanks, Jayne

    Do you mean eggs or embryos. Please clarify.

    up to 10 years should be good. There is no risk using older embryos, just that pregnancy rate is lower. Hope that helps. best of luck.

    Default How much do you think the rates go down with older embryos

    We froze 5 embryos from our first IVF in 2000, which did not work. We then froze 2 from our second IVF in 2001, which resulted in twins. So we have a total of 7 embryos frozen. We would thaw all of them, and try 1 frozen cycle, how many would you recommend putting back in? With them being 8 and 9 years old, where would you put our chances of success at?? I was 27 and 28 when I had the IVF's.

    Thanks, Jayne

    Impossible to say w/o the embryology and IVF report. If they were frozen on D3, one option is to thaw them all, grow them to blastocyst and transfer 2 best and freeze the rest.
