Egg Freezing and Storage

Get an Upper Hand on Infertility: Freeze Eggs

Being a mother is no easy task. A woman has to be both emotionally and physically prepared to be a mother. Sometimes a woman’s health condition may not allow her to get pregnant. A woman might be perfectly healthy but the time may not seem perfect for her to be a mother. Egg freezing helps to preserve a woman's ability to get pregnant. The eggs collected from the ovaries are frozen and stored for future use. When the time seems right, the eggs are combined with sperms and implanted in the uterus with the help of In Vitro Fertilization.

When does a Woman Choose to Freeze Her Eggs?

The first step in egg freezing is the ovarian stimulation where synthetic hormones are ingested for the production of multiple eggs. The eggs are retrieved under general anesthesia and frozen for future use. A woman freezes her eggs under the following circumstances:

  • Suffers from a condition that affects her fertility. Sickle cell anemia, autoimmune diseases like lupus could affect fertility in women
  • Undergoing treatment for cancer like radiation and chemotherapy
  • Wishes to preserve younger eggs to ensure conception at a later stage
  • Are at risk of ovarian diseases that damage the ovaries
  • Undergoing In Vitro Fertilization

Freezing Eggs: Choose When to Get Pregnant

  • The number of eggs declines as a woman ages. By freezing her eggs, a woman can use her own eggs and get pregnant even at a later stage in life.
  • The quality of the eggs also diminishes with age. There is a high chance of producing eggs with chromosomal abnormalities. Freezing eggs ensures that the quality of the eggs remains intact.
  • Freezing eggs helps to reduce ‘fertility anxiety’. A woman no longer has to worry about her biological clock ticking off.
  • A woman has enough time in her hand to find a secured job, partner, and go after other goals. By freezing eggs, she can get pregnant when the time seems right.
  • When done under expert supervision, egg freezing shows promising results.
