Egg freezing

Preserving Fertility for the Future with Oocyte Cryopreservation

Who Needs Egg Freezing

Egg freezing may be suitable for various individuals in different situations, including:

  • Women who wish to delay childbearing due to personal or career reasons.
  • Individuals undergoing medical treatments or procedures that may impact fertility, such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
  • Women with certain medical conditions or genetic predispositions that may affect their reproductive health.
  • Individuals who want to preserve their fertility before undergoing procedures such as gender reassignment surgery.


When to See a Specialist

It is recommended to consult with a reproductive endocrinologist or fertility specialist if you are considering egg freezing. They can assess your specific circumstances, provide guidance on the process, and answer any questions you may have.


  • Ovarian stimulation: The woman undergoes ovarian stimulation using hormonal medications to encourage the development of multiple mature eggs.
  • Monitoring: Throughout the stimulation process, the woman undergoes regular monitoring through blood tests and ultrasound examinations to assess the growth and maturation of the eggs.
  • Egg retrieval: Once the eggs have reached an optimal size, they are retrieved through a minimally invasive procedure called transvaginal ultrasound-guided follicle aspiration. This involves the insertion of a needle into the ovaries to collect the eggs.
  • Egg freezing: The retrieved eggs are then immediately frozen using a process called vitrification, which involves rapid cooling to preserve their viability.
  • Storage: The frozen eggs are stored in a specialized laboratory facility until they are ready to be used.
  • Thawing and fertilization: When the woman is ready to use her frozen eggs, they are thawed and fertilized through in vitro fertilization (IVF) with sperm from a partner or a donor.
  • Embryo transfer: Once the embryos have developed, one or more are transferred into the woman’s uterus for potential pregnancy.


Road to Recovery

There is typically no specific recovery period after egg retrieval for egg freezing. Mild discomfort or bloating may be experienced for a few days following the procedure. The woman can resume normal activities within a day or two after the procedure.

Risk Management

Egg freezing is generally a safe procedure, but there are some potential risks and considerations to be aware of. These include the possibility of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) due to ovarian stimulation medications, as well as the uncertainty of future pregnancy success rates. It is important to discuss these risks with your healthcare provider.

Benefits of Egg Freezing during IVF

  • Future fertility preservation: Egg freezing allows women to preserve their eggs at a younger age, when they are of higher quality, for use in the future when they are ready to conceive.
  • Flexibility and control: Egg freezing provides women with the freedom to delay childbearing and pursue personal or professional goals without the pressure of age-related fertility decline.
  • Medical interventions: For individuals undergoing medical treatments or procedures that may affect fertility, egg freezing offers the opportunity to preserve reproductive options.
  • Family planning options: Egg freezing can be an empowering choice for individuals who desire the ability to have a biological child later in life, even if they haven’t yet found a partner or are not ready to start a family.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How successful is IVF using frozen eggs?

    The success rates of IVF using frozen eggs vary depending on various factors, including the age of the woman at the time of egg freezing and the quality of the eggs. Generally, using younger and higher-quality eggs increases the chances of success. It is important to discuss success rates with your fertility specialist, as they can provide specific information based on your individual circumstances.

  1. How long can frozen eggs be stored?

    The storage duration for frozen eggs can vary depending on local regulations and the fertility clinic’s policies. In many countries, eggs can be stored for up to 10 years or more. It is important to check with the fertility clinic regarding their specific storage guidelines and options for extending storage if needed.

  1. Are there any age restrictions for egg freezing?

    While there is no strict age limit for egg freezing, the quality and quantity of a woman’s eggs decline with age, which can affect the success rates of pregnancy in the future. It is generally recommended to consider egg freezing before the age of 38 for optimal outcomes. However, individual circumstances may vary, and it is best to consult with a fertility specialist to determine the most appropriate timing for egg freezing based on your specific situation
