Egg Freezing, also known as oocyte cryopreservation, is a fertility preservation option that allows women to freeze their eggs for future use. This procedure has gained popularity recently as more women delay motherhood for many reasons, such as career goals or personal growth. However, egg freezing is only for some since other fertility treatments can be more suitable for those dreaming of starting a family.
Today our fertility specialists will discuss some factors to consider when deciding if egg freezing is proper for you.
As with any medical procedure, egg freezing carries certain risks. The medications used to stimulate the ovaries can cause side effects such as bloating, discomfort, and mood changes. There is also a small risk of infection or bleeding during the egg retrieval phase. However, the risks associated with egg freezing are low, and along with our high-skilled specialists, the procedure is considered safe and effective.

When eggs are frozen, they can remain in the lab until you decide what to do with them; you can use or donate them. When the decision is made to use them, the devitrification process will be reversed and fertilized with sperm (from the partner or donor).
Egg freezing allows more than 90% of the cells to be kept intact, so a success rate is similar to IVF.
At The Fertility Center, egg freezing costs $6,600.
