The MFC has 1 of the best embryo freezing programs in Canada. Because we prefer to freeze embryos at the blastocyst stage (day 5), we do not freeze as many embryos as clinics that freeze on day 2 or 3. However, our post-thaw survival rate is approximately 95%, giving couples an excellent chance of achieving a pregnancy.
While our pregnancy rate is still higher with fresh blastocyst transfer, our freezing program results in many pregnancies. Freezing blastocysts is a good cost-saving option for couples undergoing in-vitro fertilization (IVF) and/or intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).
