Egg freezing allows women to preserve their own eggs, frozen when they are young and healthy, to help them achieve pregnancy later.

WHY FREEZE?

AGE 25

High ovarian reserve AND a high percent of genetically normal eggs

Strong chance of conceiving each month

AGE 40

Fewer eggs AND each egg is less likely to be genetically normal

More difficult to become pregnant

KEY CONSIDERATIONS

EGG COUNT

Women are born with ~1 million eggs, but that is all the eggs they will ever have. This reserve declines as women age.

EGG QUALITY

Eggs are either genetically normal or abnormal. Over time, the percentage of abnormal eggs increases.

FERTILITY & AGE

Diminishing egg count and quality decrease your fertility as you age—accelerating around age 35.

THE PROCESS

The whole process looks something like this:

1

FERTILITY ASSESSMENT

(30–45 minutes)

A simple blood test of your anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH) and a transvaginal ultrasound provide our doctors with an understanding of your fertility.

2

MD CONSULTATION

(Up to 1 hour)

In a 1x1 meeting with one of our doctors, we discuss your medical history and the results of your fertility assessment, and review the science, the process, and personalized expectations of egg freezing.

3

LOGISTICS CLASS

(Up to 2 hours)

When you’re ready to move forward, we will teach you everything you need to know for a successful cycle, including how to administer prescribed hormone injections.

4

MONITORING

(8-12 days)

You will administer daily hormone injections to stimulate the ovaries. We monitor your progress approximately every other day in short, 20–30-minute visits.

5

RETRIEVAL DAY

During a 15-minute surgical procedure, your doctor will remove follicular fluid, containing eggs, from your ovaries. You’ll be under mild sedation, so it won’t hurt. It’s done by needle through your vaginal wall—no cuts or stitches. Most people return to work the next day.

6

VITRIFICATION and STORAGE

Your eggs are incubated to allow for as many of them to mature as possible. The mature eggs (the only ones that can be fertilized) are frozen in liquid nitrogen in our lab by our team of experienced embryologists. Your eggs are stored on-site before being transferred to our secure storage facility.

We are the largest egg freezing practice in the country. Our extensive experience, transparent pricing and caring clinical team set us apart.
