People who have embryos in storage for use in assisted reproductive treatment often find it difficult to decide what to do with the embryos when they are no longer receiving treatment. The ‘What to do with your unused embryos?’ brochure outlines the available options.
Decision tool for what to do with your unused embryos
An interactive decision tool for what to do with your unused embryos is also available to assist with decision-making for people who are having difficulty making their mind up.
