Egg freezing (Vitrification):
Woman’s fertility is largely dependent on the quality and quantity of her eggs. As woman ages her fertility potential or egg quality and quantity decreases as does the chances of getting pregnant. This is an option to save the fertility of a woman who decides to marry late or a woman who has to undergo chemotherapy.
The Egg Freezing Program offers egg freezing technology (also called oocyte vitrification) to protect a woman’s fertility in all of these situations. By making the choice to freeze her eggs today, a woman can lock in her fertility potential for future use when the circumstances and timing are right for her.
Age and Fertility Preservation:
Egg freezing is intended to extend the biological clock. Female fertility begins declining in the early 30s, but getting pregnant remains high into the 30s. By her mid-30s, the decline accelerates to reach minimal pregnancy potential by the time the woman reaches age 42. In addition, women over 35 women have an increased risk of miscarriage and/or genetic abnormalities in their children as a result of age-dependent changes in egg quality. Therefore, the best age to preserve eggs is in your early to mid-30s. When a woman uses her frozen eggs in the future, even if a number of years have passed, both the pregnancy rates and the incidence of miscarriage and genetic abnormalities will depend on the age of the woman when the eggs were frozen, not her age when she uses the eggs.
