Case Reports of Successful Pregnancies after Oocyte Vitrification and Embryo Re-Vitrification

Academic Journal
The article presents pregnancies that resulted from embryo transfer of vitrified-warmed blastocysts generated from fertilization of vitrified-warmed oocytes. The first couple presented for assisted reproduction treatment (ART). The second case included a woman and her husband, who was diagnosed with primary infertility due to premature ovarian failure. Both pregnancies signify that vitrification may be an efficient method for oocyte cryopreservation and subsequent embryo re-cryopreservation.

    Enthusiasm for oocyte cryopreservation has been limited by poor pregnancy rates per thawed metaphase II (MII) oocytes (<4%) and low implantation rates per embryos.
