What is Egg 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 then 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.
Over the last 10 years, more women are choosing to delay childbearing. However, after the age of 30 fertility rapidly declines, and even more so after the age of 35. Fortunately, women now have more control and can preserve their fertility by freezing their healthy eggs at a young age and undergo IVF when they are ready.
