Frozen embryos give same results live births in IVF

Infertile couples can now have a child by using freezing embryos. The researchers from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, and Adelaide, Australia has found this remarkable result during research. As per the study, frozen embryos give a result which feels as fresh one.  The techniques discovered by the researchers known as controversial was little effective than live birth rates.

The study has been published in this week in journal The New England Journal of Medicine. They found it gives that much of chance to have a child as using fresh embryos for in vitro fertilization (IVF). When they compared the result of this the also detected that pregnancy and live births rates were similar in a group of women of in vitro fertilization with frozen embryos when compared with fresh embryos. For the study, the researchers had selected 800 infertile women. The result shows, around 36 per cent of infertile women got pregnant by frozen embryos techniques on the other side in the fresh group it was 35 per cent. This technique also increased the result of children being born alive. In the fresh group, the rate was 32 per cent whereas in frozen embryos the rate increased to 34 percent.

Dr. Lan N. Vuong, lead author and from the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology, University of Medicine and Pharmacy at Ho Chi Minh City, and My Duc Hospital, Ho Chi Minh City stated that frozen embryo techniques are now growing rapidly in fertility clinics all over the worlds. Now the research will be very important for fertility clinicians and researchers and also for those couples who are hoping to have a child.

The study was carried out by with the collaboration with Professor Ben Mol, from the University of Adelaide’s Robinson Research Institute, who is also a member of the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute’s Healthy Mothers, Babies and Children theme. Another researcher was Professor Robert Norman, from the Robinson Research Institute, University of Adelaide and a leading fertility unit, Fertility SA.

Professor mol said that the study gives good news to all those infertile women and now women not affected by PCOS can have same life IVF birth by using the frozen embryos techniques.

Dr. Vuong says: The results are based on a particular freezing method called Cryotech vitrification. So there are very low chances that it will work with all embryo freezing methods. The researchers will also try to compare the pregnancy chances and live birth rates of this technique with other freezing embryos techniques. It is considered to be one of the most effective, easiest and safest method of preserving oocytes and embryos.

However, still, the researchers suggested that it may not increase the chances of live birth like fresh embryos in case of a large population. Well, the researchers are now working more on it so that it can be used in all fertile clinic all over the world as infertility is now a major headache throughout the world.
