If needed egg cells or sperm cells can be cryopreserved and used for a later fertility treatment. The reasons for cryopreservation can be varied. This method, however, is not suitable for all egg or sperm cells. We will be happy to advise you if this technique is recommended based on your individual medical findings.
The Austrian Law states that egg or sperm cells can only be frozen due to a medically indicated reason (see below). Every other form of freezing, for example in order to postpone family formation, is unfortunately forbidden in Austria. For these patients we cooperate with European partner centres so that we can still offer this treatment for you.
