Oocyte Cryopreservation (Egg Freeze)

Oocyte Cryopreservation (Egg Freezing) is ideal for women who are not yet ready to begin a family. It is also used for women about to undergo treatment for cancer who would like to preserve their eggs.  This type of cycle can be done with or without stimulation medications, depending on what is safest for the individual determined by the type of cancer. It will require several monitoring visits so the doctor can determine the best date for the retrieval to occur.  Any viable oocytes retrieved are then frozen.
