Oocyte Cryopreservation (Egg Freezing) is a modern reproduction technique to extend the fertility of women. Here at Neway Fertility, our top fertility doctors specialize in egg freezing using in-vitro maturation (IVM). IVM is a safer and more unique alternative to Conventional IVF. Over 5000 healthy babies were born from IVM worldwide.
Using IVM during egg freezing cycles, women have the ability to create multiple viable eggs by using less hormone injections. In addition, immature undeveloped eggs are retrieved and are developed outside the body. In contrast to many fertility centers in NYC, Neway Fertility does not discard any immature eggs. Instead, if immature eggs are obtained during egg retrieval, our embryologists will mature those eggs in our lab, providing our patients with a higher chance of getting pregnant.
Benefits of Egg Freezing with IVM:
- Less invasive and less side effects from medications
- Lowers the risk of OHSS
- Shorter cycle
- Less visits to the clinic
Who Should Consider Egg Freezing with IVM?
- Women who are diagosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
- Women with high risks for Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS)
- Women who are diagnosed with hormone-sensitive cancer, such as breast cancer
While egg freezing is not for everyone, it is a viable option for some women and gives them more control over their fertility options. To learn more about egg freezing and to find out if you are an ideal candidate, please contact us.
