Fertility Preservation Through Egg Freezing

Egg freezing is a phenomenal new technology that has become a standard practice of care in today’s practice of Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART). Oocyte cryopreservation – egg freezing – gives Millennial women the opportunity to preserve their fertility. Egg freezing is also a viable option for those facing cancer treatment that could damage or destroy their quality of eggs.

Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET)

The FET process consists of:

  • Egg (oocyte) thawing
  • Fertilization of the eggs with sperm through intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)
  • Monitoring the development of the embryo – 3 to 5 days – in a control laboratory setting
  • Embryo transfer procedure – no anesthesia required

Egg Freezing Center

A woman’s egg quality peaks after her prime reproductive years – typically 18 to 28. After between 28 and 33 – her mid-reproductive years – a woman’s ovaries will produce eggs of a lower quality. After 33, a woman’s egg quality production precipitously diminishes.

Egg freezing is accomplished through a varied standard In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) protocol. After retrieval, the woman’s eggs are cryopreserved. Cryopreservation allows for the eggs to be later thawed, fertilized, and then transferred to the woman’s uterus.

Mature eggs are frozen and stored in liquid nitrogen. A woman’s frozen eggs are stored in Advanced Fertility Services on site, approved, long term cryopreservation facility. When a woman decides to start her family, her frozen eggs are thawed and fertilized with sperm through a highly specialized procedure known as Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI). After fertilization, the growth and development of the embryo is monitored for 3 to 4 days before being transferred into the woman’s uterus for hopeful implantation.
