It allows patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiotherapy to preserve their fertility, and helps to attain all benefits from the costly ovarian superovulation therapies prior to assisted reproductive techniques (ART). Owing to the extremely high survival and pregnancy rates, vitrification is now being widely used in ART laboratories in addition to its low cost and simplicity as an optimal cryopreservation procedure for human oocytes and embryos.
