Egg freezing (oocyte cryopreservation) using the vitrification method allows the use of these eggs at a later date. Using this method, egg survival rates are high thus allowing postponement of motherhood with high chances of success.
This is important for women who would like to store eggs before undergoing chemotherapy, radiotherapy or other treatments that may affect their future fertility.
We also store eggs for social reasons, for women who are not currently ready to start a family but want to preserve high levels of fertility. The eggs that are frozen at a younger age are of better quality than those produced by older women.
Egg freezing is recommended for the following cases:
Your desire to offer generously the love you hold inside you is also our desire.
Egg freezing (oocyte cryopreservation) for women with cancer allows postponing pregnancy until the patient has recovered from the illness, with the same reproductive prognosis as when the eggs were originally frozen.
It is important to get information and/or advice on fertility preservation options as soon as patients are diagnosed and chemotherapy is considered.
When egg vitrification is considered for cancer patients, there are many factors to take into account, such as age, ovarian function and reserve, the time available prior to chemotherapy, and whether or not there is consensus from the oncology specialist. The reproductive prognosis will largely depend on the number of eggs available freeze.
