The process of egg-freezing (oocyte cryopreservation) involves stimulating the ovaries with hormones to produce multiple eggs, retrieving the eggs from the ovaries, cryopreserving them, and then storing them for later use.
Cryopreservation of eggs may be a viable option for patients undergoing IVF treatments that result in an excess number of embryos. If the excess embryos are ideal in quality, they can be frozen for future attempts at pregnancy.
With the emergence of greatly successful egg freezing technologies, more and more women are choosing to delay starting a family to focus on their careers or find the right life partner. Fertility preservation services like egg freezing provide a way for them to safeguard their fertility, despite the passage of time.
Egg quantity and quality begin to diminish when a woman is in her 20s.
As young as 34, women are considered of “advanced maternal age.”
One in eight American women have fertility issues.
Approximately 13% of women aged 35-39 will suffer from infertility at some point.
Age, though, is only one factor that may motivate a woman to freeze her eggs. Recently, we have seen more young women facing recurrences of either ovarian endometriosis cysts or ovarian dermoid cysts. To hopefully avoid losing all of their ovarian tissue to these benign, but nonetheless progressively destructive conditions these women are seeking fertility preservation.
IVFMD’s approach to stimulating ovaries and harvesting eggs for long-term storage is simple, time-efficient, highly cost-competitive, and minimally disruptive. In most women under the age of 35, we see a recovery rate of approximately 70% of all cryopreserved mature oocytes, allowing for quite realistic chances to conceive a child through subsequent in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer.
At IVFMD we don’t just freeze your eggs; we truly care about your reproductive future!
