Cryopreservation of eggs is a current strategy used to preserve a woman’s future fertility potential. The reason for this is that when eggs are removed from the ovary and frozen, they do not continue to age and therefore they retain their full potential. The eggs can then be later used to create embryos and pregnancies. In the past, cryopreservation of eggs used to be considered experimental. This is no longer the case and cryopreservation of eggs is a standard part of our practice. NCRM is part of a national egg bank called Donor Egg Bank (DEB), USA. As part of this network we routinely cryopreserve and thaw eggs for patient use.
Egg cryopreservation was originally intended for use in women that were knowingly going to lose their fertility potential and wanted to do something about it. For example, a woman diagnosed with cancer who was planning to undergo chemotherapy may have had her eggs cryopreserved before the chemotherapy treatment started. When she defeats her cancer and begins her planning for a family, her eggs will be available to use. Currently, many women are electing to cryopreserve their eggs for many different reasons. Some are using the technology to avoid the effect of aging that is seen in all women as they get older. This may allow them more time to build their career or to find the right partner in life before starting their family.
