Freeze your eggs. Buy yourself some time. Until the time is right.
How it works
It is estimated that for each successful pregnancy, a woman should have at least 12 to 20 high quality eggs "in the bank", depending on her age.
To retrieve these eggs, a woman is given medications to stimulate her ovaries. Ultrasounds are performed to see how many eggs she has produced and when they are large enough to retrieve.
The retrieval takes about 30 minutes and is performed under light anesthesia. Patients are ready to leave the office about 30 minutes later and encouraged to return to light activity only for about 48 hours.
The eggs are then flash frozen through a process called vitrification. The eggs are stored as long as needed until you are ready to use them.
Whether to complete your education, further your career, travel the world, or find the right partner:
freezing your eggs gives you FREEDOM.
Why freeze your eggs
Freezing your eggs buys you the time to have children when the time is right for you. Whether to complete your education, further your career, travel the world, or find the right partner, freezing your eggs gives you freedom.
With new technology that freezes eggs very quickly, called vitrification, doctors can achieve a 70% to 80% fertilization rate with thawed eggs. This is one of the most exciting developments in the fertility field because it offers women more choices than ever before.
There are many reasons why a woman may want to freeze her eggs (a process known as cryopreservation) for future use. The most common reason is her age. Other reasons include chemotherapy and radiation treatments for cancer. Certain conditions such as endometriosis or ovarian cysts may also prevent a woman from having a functional uterus or ovaries. For these women, saving her eggs for future use themselves or with a surrogate allows them to have a biological child of their own.
When you are ready to get pregnant, we will thaw the eggs and complete the IVF process, which involves taking progesterone to thicken the uterine wall and transferring one or two healthy fertilized eggs (embryos) into your uterus. Our partner, Conceptions Florida, offers the most advanced laboratory with the best results not only for egg freezing, but for completing the IVF process, including genetic testing if required.
