Egg freezing Program

Unfertilized Egg Freezing

A woman’s chance of conceiving naturally declines with age as the quantity and quality of her eggs diminish, so women who store their frozen eggs or embryos when they are younger may have a better chance of a successful pregnancy in the future.

Some men and women are not able to have children due to the effects of medical treatment, such as certain types of cancer treatments. By identifying with a medical professional, your risk for infertility, you can take steps before treatment to help preserve your fertility.

Eggs do not respond as well as embryos to freezing, and generally the resulting success rate is not as high. However, vitrification (a new method for egg storage) has recently been shown to improve the chance of eggs surviving the freeze-thaw process and therefore increase the success rate. Women who store their frozen eggs when they are younger may have a better chance of a successful pregnancy in the future. Women who are not able to have children due to the effects of chemotherapy and radiation for cancer treatments can now preserve their fertility by having their eggs freezing prior to undergoing cancer therapy.
