Embryo Freezing Consent Form

Before embryo freezing, an informed conscent form signed by the couple is required (according to Laws 3089/2002 and 3305/2005). This includes information regarding the disposition of the embryos, in cases where they will not be used in the future.

Our center has set a period of 12 months as a maximal period of embryo storage. After that period of time, it is at the discretion of the couple in cooperation with the embryologists as to whether the remaining frozen embryos should continue to be stored, or appropriately discarded or donated. This may include the option to donate the embryos for research or to other infertile couples for transfer.
