How Egg Freezing Works

 

At RAD, doctors begin the process by stimulating the ovaries with medication as in a typical IVF cycle. They retrieve a woman’s eggs and freeze them (oocyte vitrification) in a monitored liquid nitrogen freezer until the patient is ready to begin building a family.

Although the American Society for Reproductive Medicine recently stated egg freezing is no longer considered experimental, many IVF clinics have little to no experience with thawing eggs or showing a consistent track record of generating pregnancies from eggs they’ve both frozen and thawed. However, our lab technicians at RAD have successfully thawed 82 donor and non-donor cycles at our centers.

 

Why Egg Freezing Might Be Right For You

 

  • If you are a woman undergoing a medical treatment such as chemotherapy that might compromise your fertility (Oncofertility)
  • If you are a woman who wants to delay having a child for personal or professional reasons
  • If you have a family history of early menopause

 

Understanding Fertility Rates And Age

 

Fertility and egg freezing conversations are usually centered on round numbers like 30 years, 35 years or 40 years, but the optimal age to freeze eggs is really not known. Women who know they are going to delay having children for one reason or another should have discussions about egg freezing sooner rather than later.

Numerous factors or diseases can impact male and female fertility, but predicting any particular woman’s current or future fertility is a challenge. Many fertility problems for women are hidden in common issues like tubal disease or endometriosis.

 

Fertility Preservation For Men

 

Some medical treatments, such as chemotherapy, may impede a man’s future fertility. RAD offers sperm freezing for men either as an oncofertility treatment or for personal reasons
