Egg Cryopreservation


If you are going through the process of egg preservation you will be working with your specialist and you will need to undergo stimulation of your ovaries with drugs to grow many follicles that contain eggs. These eggs are then collected transvaginally whilst you are asleep and are then frozen using rapid freezing techniques called ‘vitrification’. These eggs can then be stored for as many as 10 years. The more eggs preserved the better the chance you have of having a baby in the future.

Why should I consider preserving my Eggs?

Planning ahead
Perhaps you want to plan ahead, and have a biological child later, or preserve your ability to get pregnant later in your life. The reasons for this choice could be an upcoming treatment, age, or personal circumstances.

Eggs only
Since we’re talking about Egg Preservation, this means no sperm is required at this stage. A reason to undergo egg freezing is that if your partner is found to have no sperm present at the time of your egg collection for an IVF cycle. It means that your eggs won’t be wasted but can be thawed and used at another time.

Younger Eggs
What it boils down to is that you choose to preserve younger eggs now, and use them in the future.
When the circumstances are different, you can then access your own, younger eggs.

Egg Preservation

Partner or Donor Sperm
When you decide to use your eggs later, they can be fertilised with sperm from a partner or a donor. In some cases the embryo can be implanted in the uterus of another woman who will then carry your child.
