Understanding Egg Freezing/Fertility Preservation 

Egg Freezing/Fertility Preservation 

Egg freezing is a treatment that allows women the option to achieve pregnancy later in life. When eggs are frozen, time is also frozen for them. The chances that these eggs will give you to achieve pregnancy will depend on the number of eggs frozen and the age they were frozen in. Our fertility consultants will give you a realistic and thorough explanation about egg freezing. 

As we know, fertility changes with age. This is the reason why IVF success rates drop with age too. Egg freezing is nothing more than an interrupted IVF cycle. We stimulate the ovaries and we do an egg collection, but instead of fertilising the eggs and transferring the embryos to achieve a pregnancy, we freeze those eggs. The reasoning behind egg freezing is to give women a chance of an IVF cycle with her own eggs but of a younger age than when she decides to have children. 

As with IVF, egg freezing is not a guarantee of pregnancy, it just gives better chances of pregnancy at a later stage in life.

When is egg freezing recommended:

  • For social reasons: egg freezing empowers women to engage in their fertility when they are ready
  • Fertility preservation in patients that will undergo chemotherapy due to cancer
  • Females transitioning into male but would like to preserve their fertility for the future
