Oldest Frozen Embyros

Human Embryo

Chattanooga, Tennessee—

A couple in Oregon just had twins that came from embryos frozen 30 YEARS ago.  By all accounts, it’s a new record.  The previous record was 27 years.

The embryos were donated by an anonymous couple in 1992, and kept at almost 200 degrees below zero this whole time.  Both babies are doing great.

New dad Philip Ridgeway says the craziest part to him is he was only FIVE when they were conceived by their birth parents 30 years ago.  (Here’s a photo.)
