    What is egg and embryo freezing?

    Human oocyte cryopreservation, commonly known as egg freezing, is the process in which a woman’s eggs are extracted, frozen and stored. When she is ready to start her family, the eggs are than thawed. Embryos are created via IVF and transferred into her uterus. With the advances in technology, the pregnancy rate when using frozen eggs continues to improve.

    Embryo cryopreservation, commonly referred to as embryo freezing, is the process in which created embryos are frozen and stored for later use. Embryos are often frozen if an individual or couple plan on having multiple children.

    Over the last 10 years, more women are choosing to delay childbearing. Howe
