The aim of the current review is to provide the obstetrics and gynecology residents with the fundamental knowledge of cryobiology and cryopreservation. This might be beneficial during routine practice while consulting a candidate woman. Although a comprehensive knowledge doubtlessly requires further reading, this review will help them attain at least the basics.
