Egg freezing, also known as oocyte cryopreservation, is an innovative fertility treatment that allows women to preserve their ability to have children. This process involves getting, freezing, and keeping a woman’s eggs, which can then be thawed and used for in vitro fertilization (IVF) when she is ready to conceive.

How Does Egg Freezing Work?

This process involves ovarian stimulation, egg extraction, freezing, and storing them, and can be combined with specially selected sperm injection through ICSI for increased chances of effective fertilization. Let’s take a look at the process:

The Egg Freezing Process

Egg freezing is a two-step process that involves the stimulation of the ovaries to produce multiple eggs, followed by the extraction and freezing of these eggs.

STEP ONE

Collecting the eggs from the donor is the first step in the egg freezing process. The method for retrieving the eggs involves using similar hormones as with in vitro fertilization to stimulate the ovaries in order to create multiple eggs. It may take over 10 days to go through this process. When the eggs have developed sufficiently to be taken out, the female patient is given medicine to be sedated and a needle is used to remove the eggs through an uncomplicated method called transvaginal ultrasound-guided aspiration.

STEP TWO

When re­ady for the second stage, the­ donor’s eggs go through a fast freezing process using a technique called vitrification. This freeze­s the eggs very quickly to pre­vent ice crystals forming which may cause damage to the ce­lls. The frozen eggs are­ then kept in liquid nitrogen tanks until they are ne­eded. After fe­rtilizing, tests are carried out to determine which egg has the best chance of developing. Once the egg mature­s into an embryo, it gets placed in the­ uterus. There the­ embryo will develop furthe­r, and a typical childbirth will take place.
