Fertility Preservation – The Perfect Timing for Egg Freezing

Freezing your eggs is a form of fertility preservation that conserves your eggs now so you can start a family in the future. Egg freezing is a more and more popular option among women and can be considered for much different personal cause. Some women are undergoing cancer treatment and want to keep their fertile eggs while others basically aren’t ready to start a family during their peak fertile years.
While egg freezing is a viable option for women who can’t get pregnant directly, the process is by no means guaranteed. The timing behind when you freeze and thaw your eggs will have a significant impact on your overall success.
How Egg Freezing Works?
The egg freezing procedure starts with a period of hormonal stimulation in order to produce a series of mature eggs. This process will be overseen by your fertility specialist, ensuring the best possible methods and outcomes for you. It generally involves hormonal injections that you can do yourself at home!
After the stimulation process is total, you will be sedated and the eggs will be removed from your ovaries using a fine needle and an ultrasound. This is a fast and simple procedure and you will be capable to rest at home after it is finished.
The specialist freezing procedure that preserves your eggs is called nitrification and it allows them to be stored safely and in excellent state.
Egg Freezing – Think about It When You Wouldn’t Think about It
One of the most difficulties that women experience with egg freezing is timing. Many of us wouldn’t think about the process in our 20s or even our 30s when our limited supply of eggs is at their healthiest.
Many women think about egg freezing later in life but because they are the same age as you are, many of your eggs can no longer lead to a pregnancy by the age of 35.
Approximately half of the eggs you choose to freeze may develop into an embryo, which then has less than a 50 per cent chance of leading to pregnancy. Due to this, it’s suggested that women freeze their eggs at a younger age when more healthy eggs can be produced, leading to a greater chance of pregnancy in the future.
Freezing Your Eggs between in Your 20s-Early 30s
While there is a chance you won’t need these eggs, choosing to freeze them in your 20s or 30s means:
Freezing Your Eggs from 35-40+
- fewer cycles are necessary
- lower costs
- a greater number of higher quality eggs
This may be the time you need them most, but freezing your eggs at a later age will mean:
- more cycles are required
- more costs to the patient
- reduced egg quality, egg numbers and live births
