What is Egg Freezing?

Egg freezing is a method of preserving a woman’s eggs for future use. It involves retrieving a woman’s mature eggs, freezing them, and storing them for later use. This process allows women to preserve their fertility potential and have the option to conceive with their eggs later in life.

Why Choose Egg Freezing?

  • Fertility Preservation: Egg freezing allows the preservation of eggs at their peak quality and fertility potential. By freezing eggs, women can effectively “pause” their biological clock and increase their chances of achieving a successful pregnancy in the future.
  • Medical or Personal Reasons: Egg freezing may be recommended or desired due to various medical or personal circumstances. Some women choose egg freezing before undergoing medical treatments, such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy, that may affect their fertility. Others may opt for egg freezing to delay childbearing for personal or career-related reasons.
  • Empowerment and Peace of Mind: Egg freezing can provide emotional and psychological reassurance. It offers women the freedom to pursue their personal and professional goals without the pressure of a ticking biological clock.
  • Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART): Egg freezing is often used in conjunction with assisted reproductive technologies, such as in vitro fertilisation (IVF). The frozen eggs can be thawed, fertilised with sperm in a laboratory, and transferred to the uterus as embryos during an IVF cycle.

Egg Freezing Procedure

  1. Ovarian Stimulation: The patient will undergo ovarian stimulation to maximise the number of mature eggs that can be retrieved. This involves taking fertility medications, typically in the form of daily injections, to stimulate the ovaries to produce multiple eggs.
  2. Egg Retrieval: A minor surgical procedure called transvaginal ultrasound-guided egg retrieval is performed once the eggs have matured. The eggs are gently aspirated from the ovarian follicles using a thin needle. The procedure is usually done under sedation to minimise discomfort.
  3. Egg Freezing: After retrieval, the eggs are carefully evaluated, and those deemed mature and suitable for freezing are cryopreserved using vitrification. Vitrification involves rapidly cooling the eggs to extremely low temperatures, which helps to prevent ice crystal formation and potential damage to the eggs.
  4. Storage and Monitoring: The frozen eggs are stored in a specialised laboratory facility, often referred to as a cryobank or fertility clinic. They are monitored and securely stored until you are ready to use them.
  5. Thawing and Fertilisation: When the patient decides to use their frozen eggs, they are thawed, and the viable ones are fertilised with sperm through in vitro fertilisation (IVF). The resulting embryos are transferred to your uterus for potential implantation and pregnancy.
