Egg Freezing abroad

Egg freezing, medically recognized as oocyte cryopreservation is a course of action to preserve a woman’s eggs. This is a practice that freezes and preserves the fertility of a woman who wishes to have children in the future. In this procedure, the eggs are taken out, frozen, and stored. This procedure helps the woman to choose pregnancy in the future where the eggs get defrosted and fertilized. The procedure’s success rate highly depends on the age of the woman.

Egg freezing is the process of harvesting and freezing a number of matured female eggs for use in future IVF procedures. Egg freezing is commonly performed for women who are not yet ready to have children, but plan to have children in the future and wish to maintain their ability to conceive. It is also performed for women who have been diagnosed with cancer and need to go undergo radiotherapy treatment. Radiotherapy can deplete the amount of eggs, therefore freezing eggs before undergoing treatment can preserve the ability to conceive in the future. Egg freezing differs from embryo cryopreservation, as the eggs harvested are not fertilized before they are frozen. Before the eggs are harvested, the patient will usually take hormone medication to increase the production of eggs. Once the eggs are ready, they are harvested, and then frozen. The eggs are usually stored for up to 10 years, and can be thawed when the women chooses. In some cases this period may be extended. It is important to keep the clinic up-to-date with any change of contact details, as they need to make contact if the freezing period is coming to an end.

As with IVF, the patient takes a drug to suppress the natural menstrual cycle. This can be administered by the patient, as a daily injection or a nasal spray, and lasts for around 2 weeks. The woman will then begin using a follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) which is in the form of a daily injection. This hormone increases the number of eggs produced by the ovaries, and the clinic will monitor the progress. This stage usually lasts 10 to 12 days. Around 34 to 38 hours before the eggs are due to be collected, there will be a final hormone injection which stimulates the eggs to mature.,

The patient is sedated before the procedure begins. The eggs are then removed from the ovaries using a needle which is inserted through the vagina, under the guidance of an ultrasound. Once extracted, the eggs are slowly frozen down to -196°C where they are stored in an anti-freeze solution to prevent the corruption of genetic material. The eggs are retrieved using a needle and ultrasound guidance and are then frozen down to -196ÂÂ
