Let a child be!

The EmbryLife Center offers a whole range of services for diagnostics and treatment of both female and male infertility. Our specialists use American IVF technology: we work according to guidelines that have shown proven results in thousands of US patients. This technology has implicit excellent laboratory equipment capabilities, in strict compliance with ASRM (American Society for Reproductive Medicine) and ESHRE (European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology) requirements.

EmbryLife is the only clinic in Russia that has been accredited by the American Association of Embryologists.

Embryological laboratory


Our laboratory complies with all state-of-the-art requirements: from equipment and consumables to highly-qualified personnel working according to the most reliable protocols. This provides high efficiency of infertility treatment. The embryologists at our clinic have mastered advanced methods and technologies, i.e., oocyte and embryo vitrification; ICSI and trophectoderm biopsy; isolation of spermatozoa from material obtained as a result of microTESE; retrieval of immature oocytes that mature in vitro; embryo cultivation in a natural medium.

We provide our patients with the possibility of preserving biological materials by means of vitrification (a modern cryo-preservation method):

  • sperm
  • ova
  • embryos
  • ovarian cortex

Indications for vitrification:

  • if unused embryos remain after superovulation stimulation
  • high risk of ovarian hyper-stimulation syndrome
  • reduced probability of embryo implantation
  • difficulties in cervical canal patency
  • embryonal donation to another couple

Cryo-preservation makes it possible to:

  • reduce the number of superovulation stimulation cycles and the patients’ costs for the procedures, as the cryo-transfer procedure and preparation therefore cost much less;
  • increase the chances of getting pregnant in the natural cycle of cryo-transfer;
  • reduce the risk of ovarian hyper-stimulation syndrome.

“Delayed motherhood” program.

If for some reason a woman chooses to delay having a child, we may recommend that she preserve her eggs through vitrification. Frozen eggs do not age. Therefore, the woman’s chances of getting pregnant by using the eggs for fertilization in the future will remain unchanged, regardless of how old she is when she decides to use them.

The program is conducted in the natural cycle and includes: U/S monitoring of folliculogenesis (4 times), ova puncture with anesthesia and their subsequent vitrification.

EmbryLife also uses such fertility preservation method as ovarian tissue freezing. The service is mostly used by women who are going to have chemotherapy for oncological illnesses, or a hysterectomy. Our specialists were trained in this method in the United States.
