Egg Freezing - Taking the first step
To get started, we recommend you make an appointment to talk with a fertility specialist. At this consultation, the specialist will explain options and help you form an initial plan. He or she will also arrange some initial screening tests to assess your fertility.
What is egg freezing?
Egg freezing involves all the steps of an IVF cycle up to and including egg collection. Eggs are then frozen by a method called vitrification. When the woman wants to use the eggs, they will be thawed, and she will resume the second half of an IVF cycle –adding sperm to the eggs, embryo transfer, and freezing any spare embryos.
Who freezes their eggs?
- Women aged from mid 20's through to early 40's
- Women who have serious medical conditions such as cancer
- Single women who have not met the right person just yet or
- Women in relationships, where maybe they are not ready
The Process of Egg Freezing
Egg freezing involves all the steps of an IVF cycle, up to and including egg collection.
Initial stage: Egg Freezing
- Treatment starts with ovarian stimulation, which uses medication that mimics the body’s reproductive hormones to increase the number of eggs available. There are a variety of medications used to do this, and they all work similarly.
- When the eggs have matured, they are collected by a simple medical procedure, and frozen by a method called vitriﬁcation.
Later stage: Egg Thaw, Fertilisation, and Transfer
- When you want to use the eggs, they are thawed, and the IVF cycle continues.
- We’ll add sperm to the eggs to create embryos, transferring the best resulting embryo to your uterus and freezing any extra embryos.
