While egg freezing is a viable option for women who can't get pregnant immediately, 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.
The egg freezing process 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 usually involves hormonal injections that you can do yourself at home.
After the stimulation process is complete, 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 able to rest at home after it is completed.
The specialist freezing process that preserves your eggs is called vitrification and it allows them to be stored safely and in excellent condition.
