Egg and Sperm Freezing

The egg freezing and sperm freezing is a highly safe and reliable way for the individuals who hold off their plans to have a child for career, who will receive a cancer treatment such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy, and for the couples who need it.

One of the major advancements in reproductive technologies is the vitrification, or deep-freezing of eggs. This “vitrification” or deep-freezing technique allows sensitive eggs to be frozen quick enough in order to prevent any damage to them.
For use in IVF cycles, this cutting-edge technique provides women with new options for preservation of fertility by initially freezing then thawing eggs.

Egg Freezing

One of the major advancements in reproductive technologies is the vitrification, or deep-freezing of eggs. This “vitrification” or deep-freezing technique allows sensitive eggs to be frozen quick enough in order to prevent any damage to them.

Why you should freeze your eggs ?

The cold vitrification provides women with a chance to freeze their own eggs when they are still young, preserve their fertility, and mitigate the risks for miscarriage associated with the “age of eggs” as well as for birth defects.
The radiotherapy, chemotherapy and surgery, they are all may destruct women’s eggs and result in infertility. Depending on the type of treated cancers, egg freezing may be an option that provides a women having cancer with an opportunity to preserve fertility before treatment starts.

Am I too young to freeze my eggs?

 

The main fertility problems related to age are associated with reduced quality and quantity of eggs as women get older; however, eggs of a women can be preserved without damaging them and stored up to 10 years without affecting quality of eggs since specific vitrification technique has been developed.

 

How does egg freezing work? The egg freezing, formally known as “oocyte cryopreservation”, is a three-stage protocol: Stimulation of ovaries: The first step in a typical egg freezing protocol is a process of fertility drugs to stimulate ovaries.

 

Egg retrieval: This is an outpatient procedure that is performed under a mild sedation, therefore no pain will be felt.

 

Freezing: Immediately after eggs are harvested (picked up), they are transferred to the laboratory where they are immediately cooled to subzero temperatures.

 

General reasons why women choose to freeze their eggs:

 

  • Preservation of fertility prior to cancer therapy/surgery,
  • Familial history of early menopause,
  • Prevention of problems associated with egg aging,
  • Postpone to have a child to achieve other objectives,
  • There is no partner available yet, or no convenient relationship to have a child.

 

What is the best time to consider egg freezing procedure?

 

You can freeze your eggs at any time when you are still at child-bearing age; however, the younger you are the better the outcome is. Fertility is gradually reduced, but shows a sharp decrease at 25 years of age and continues to decrease until menopause. As you get old, the chance to achieve a pregnancy with frozen eggs is also decreased. If you freeze your eggs at the beginning of your thirties, your chance to get pregnant with these eggs would be 40% to 50%. If you wait until the end of your thirties, this rate would range from 20% to 15%.
