Fertility Treatments are usually performed using controlled ovarian hyperstimulation in order to obtain an adequate number of ovules and embryos.
The average number of embryos transferred is between 2 and 4, depending on the quality of embryos and woman's age.
If more embryos than the ones needed are obtained, these embryos are preserved using a technique known as cryopreservation, through which embryos are preserved at very low temperatures. This way, their metabolism is arrested and they can be preserved for a long time.
In this way, cryopreserved embryos can be thawed for later use. Transfer is usually usually takes place during the woman's normal ovulatory cycle.
The main advantages of cryopreservation are:
Spermatozoa as well as ovules can be cryopreserved. This treatment is offered to patients who present some kind of pathology or require treatments that could be a threat to the future fertility of the patient.

Intracytoplasmic sperm injection is a laboratory procedure developed to help infertile couples undergoing IVF due to male infertility or subfertility. ICSI is a form of micromanipulation that involves the injection of a single sperm directly into the cytoplasm of a mature egg using a glass needle.
The IVF process consists in fertilizing an egg with sperm in a laboratory. However, the fertilizing process is completely natural since approximately 50,000 sperm are placed with each egg which is naturally penetrated by one of them.
Oocyte Donation is used for women who cannot produce their own eggs or produce poor quality eggs incapable of forming a viable embryo. This process involves the fertilization of the eggs with sperm from the patient's partner. The embryos develop in the laboratory and are transferred into the woman's uterus
