Egg Freezing

Egg freezing, also known as oocyte cryopreservation, is a process where medication is used to stimulate a woman's ovaries to produce multiple mature eggs which are then retrieved, frozen and stored for future use.

The procedure is a form of assisted reproductive technology and was first developed in the 1980s.

The first step in the process is typically a vaginal ultrasound to evaluate the woman's egg supply and measure her hormone levels. After the eggs are retrieved, they are frozen and stored until the woman is ready to use them to try to conceive. Egg freezing can be useful for women who want to delay pregnancy until a later stage of life or who have a medical condition that may affect their fertility in the future.

This service is provided by fertility clinics or bio banks.

When considering egg freezing for future IVF procedures, it is important to ask yourself and your doctor several key questions to ensure that you are making an informed decision. Here are some important questions to ask yourself:

  1. What are my personal and professional goals and how does having a child fit into those goals?
  2. Am I comfortable with the cost of egg freezing and the possibility that it may not result in a successful pregnancy?
  3. Am I willing to undergo hormonal injections and egg retrieval surgery?

In addition to asking yourself these questions, it is important to ask your doctor about their experience with egg freezing and IVF procedures.

Here are some important questions to ask your doctor:

  1. How many egg freezing cycles have you performed?
  2. How many eggs do you recommend I freeze?
  3. What is the success rate of your egg freezing and IVF procedures?
  4. What is the cost of the procedure and are there any financing options available?
  5. What are the possible side effects and risks associated with the procedure?
