21 Sep Why Necessary To Freeze Eggs And Sperms?
The women with a career have started to take place in the business world more than last years, and they postpone the age to have a child together with marriage; this causes that they cannot have a baby when they wish. As women get old, the ovarian reserve and fertility of women is significantly reduced. In addition, the factors such as receiving a cancer therapy, history of an operation for ovaries, and familial history of early menopause may reduce the chance of women to achieve a pregnancy even at younger ages. The egg freezing procedure is a critical procedure that paves the way for having a baby despite older age.
The eggs can be frozen in case of reduced ovarian reserve and in cases especially where there are elevated levels of hormones stimulating the ovaries despite at younger ages, or in case of history of certain diseases. In the egg freezing process, the eggs that are frozen at a younger age are not affected by the aging of woman, and they are thawed when required and very likely to achieve a pregnancy with in-vitro fertilization procedure.
There has recently been a significant increase in the number of cancer cases in the world and in Turkey. The early diagnosis and treatment allow large number of patients to completely recover and maintain their life as healthy as they used to be. However, the heavy drugs used for the cancer therapy may cause severe damage to both egg cells of women and sperm cells of men. The egg freezing and sperm freezing procedure enable women or men with cancer to reserve their right to have a child by using their own stored cells after they recover.
In the in-vitro fertilization, sperm freezing has been successfully used for long years. The egg freezing and embryo freezing have also given quite successful results especially in the last years. It is possible to achieve a healthy pregnancy even after years of freezing procedure. No adverse effects have been observed on the babies in the pregnancies achieved with frozen cells.
