Egg freezing, or mature oocyte cryopreservation, is a method used to preserve a woman's ability to get pregnant in the future. Eggs harvested from your ovaries are frozen unfertilized and stored for later use. A frozen egg can be thawed, combined with sperm in a lab and implanted in your uterus (in vitro fertilization).
Egg freezing can be beneficial for a number of reasons for women wishing to preserve their fertility for the future including:
Modern fertility advances have given patients more options to preserve their fertility. At one time, freezing embryos was the best way to safeguard future family plans. However, thanks to a fast freezing process called vitrification, egg freezing can lead to good success rates, giving patients more choices with their fertility planning. Ovarian tissue cryopreservation also continues to show promise as another avenue for fertility preservation.
