Egg Freezing

Introduction of Egg Freezing

What is Egg Freezing

Egg freezing is a fertility preservation process in which a woman’s eggs are extracted, frozen, and stored for later use. The first step involves administering fertility drugs to stimulate the ovaries to produce multiple mature eggs. Then, a fertility specialist extracts the eggs and cryogenically freezes them. These eggs can be stored indefinitely and are used whenever the woman decides she wants to have babies.


Why is egg freezing a good option for women?

Egg freezing offers women the opportunity to preserve their fertility until they are ready to have baby. Egg freezing is a relatively new technology which offers women true peace of mind in knowing that their fertility is not at risk due to aging or a medical condition. Nowadays, elective or “social” egg freezing has become an increasingly popular option for women to better achieve their personal or career goals.


Who should consider to freeze eggs?

Many women choose elective egg freezing because:

  • They would prefer to delay having a family due to career or personal goals
  • They are concerned about their age affecting the health of their eggs
  • They have not yet found the right partner to start a family
  • They are facing a recent cancer diagnosis (Medical Fertility Preservation) or other health condition that negatively affects fertility
