For many families who have used in vitro fertilization, there is a nagging thought at the back of their mind: what are we going to do with our remaining embryos? That nagging thought usually comes to the forefront of your mind when you get a bill from your embryo storage facility, asking if you’d like to renew. In a survey done by University of California in San Francisco, 72% of couples are unsure about what to do with their remaining embryos. If you’ve been facing this question for a while now, it may be time to finally decide what you want to do with your remaining embryos.
You have several options for your leftover embryos, including:
- Allowing the clinic to discard them
- Donating them to science for research
- Keeping them frozen indefinitely
- Donating them to another couple
