EGG FREEZING

Advances in technology have made egg freezing a successful procedure. The ideal time to freeze eggs is in the mid to late 20s or early to mid-30s.

The egg-freezing process is like an IVF treatment cycle – a woman goes through hormone stimulation and egg collection prior to her eggs being cryopreserved. Frozen eggs may be stored in liquid nitrogen for years to come without significant deterioration.

Egg freezing can be used for fertility preservation or for infertility treatment backup. Examples include women who would like to start a family later in life, female-to-male transgender patients who would like to preserve their fertility, women preparing for chemotherapy or pelvic radiotherapy, etc.
