Our Egg Freezing Process

What to expect when you're putting your eggs on ice.

Getting Started

Getting Started

The first step is a fertility assessment.

During this appointment, we’ll be gathering information about your fertility and your overall health. This appointment will prepare you to meet with one of our accomplished reproductive endocrinologists to discuss your options and create a plan.

Deciding to freeze

Deciding to Freeze

It’s time to take the next step!

We’ll help you get your medications, schedule, and paperwork in order so you can start your cycle.

Medication & Monitoring

Medication & Monitoring

You’ll be prescribed 8–11 days of hormone injections, and your treatment schedule will include 5–7 short doctor visits.

The injections stimulate your ovaries to produce multiple eggs in one menstrual cycle (instead of just the one egg produced in a typical cycle). You’ll have a blood test and transvaginal ultrasound performed at these visits to assess your response to the medication.

Egg Retrieval

Egg Retrieval

This is a 15-minute surgical procedure.

The doctor will retrieve several eggs from your ovaries. It’s done through the insertion of a needle through your vaginal wall (breathe—you’ll be under sedation and won’t feel a thing). No cuts or stitches.

Cryopreservation

Cryopreservation

Your eggs will be frozen in our state-of-the-art laboratory.

Your eggs will be immediately frozen using vitrification, a superior flash-freezing technique. This process will happen in our lab—just steps from the operating room—which was designed especially for egg freezing.

Cryopreservation

Long-Term Storage

Your eggs will be shipped to a specialized, secure facility, where they’ll be kept until you tell us you’re ready for them.

(The longest reported successful thaw came after 14 years—so you’ve got some time here.)
