In the case of people who are going to start a Woman to Man (WtaM) treatment, egg vitrification is prescribed to preserve their fertility. This is carried out in three phases: Ovarian stimulation and ultrasound check-ups, oocyte retrieval (ovarian pick-up) and freezing (vitrification) of the eggs.
Once the eggs have been obtained by means of ovarian puncture, they are frozen using vitrification techniques. Vitrification is a cellular solidification at low temperatures and in a short time, without the formation of ice. Large quantities of cell cryoprotectants are used to ensure a better survival rate of the cells when they are thawed. When the time comes to look for a pregnancy, the oocytes are thawed and then fertilised.
In the case of people who are going to start a Male to Female (MtW) treatment, sperm vitrification is prescribed to preserve their fertility: it is only necessary to deliver a sample to the clinic or send it with the Sperm FreezeKit for self-freezing of semen. For those who come to the clinic to deliver their sample, we have designed a discreet space and the Erotic Personal System, a stimulation pack to achieve greater sexual arousal and, consequently, the best quality of the sperm sample.
If you are going to freeze your sperm, we have an Andrology laboratory and a specialised unit to assess your fertility. If necessary, we will advise you on the best add-on techniques for your treatment.
