It is not easy to decide the fate of embryos left over from IVF treatment. The professionals must explain in detail the characteristics of each of the options that the law contemplates for these embryos. In addition, the couple or female progenitor must renew every two years the informed consent form stating their decision. At this time, the destination previously chosen for the frozen embryos can also be modified.
In the event that the centre receives no response from the patients after two renewals, the cryopreserved embryos will be made available to them.
