Understanding Egg Freezing: Everything You Need to Know New York, NY

Egg freezing has emerged as a groundbreaking option for women who wish to preserve their fertility and have more control over their reproductive futures. At Neway Fertility, we understand the importance of providing comprehensive information and advanced techniques to empower our patients in their fertility journey. Here is everything you need to know about egg freezing, from the procedure and process to our innovative approaches at Neway Fertility.

Egg freezing, also known as oocyte cryopreservation, is a fertility preservation technique that involves retrieving a woman’s eggs, freezing them and storing them for future use. This allows women to preserve their fertility and have the option to conceive later in life when they are ready to start a family. Egg freezing can be particularly beneficial for women who wish to delay childbearing due to career goals, medical reasons or personal circumstances.

The Egg Freezing Process

The egg-freezing process typically begins with ovarian stimulation, where the woman undergoes hormone injections to stimulate her ovaries to produce multiple eggs. This involves daily hormone injections and sometimes other medications to suppress natural ovulation and control the timing of egg maturation. This usually takes 7-10 days of hormone therapy before the eggs can be retrieved.

Throughout the ovarian stimulation process, the woman’s hormone levels and ovarian response are closely monitored through blood tests and ultrasound examinations. Once the eggs reach optimal maturity, a transvaginal ultrasound-guided egg retrieval procedure is performed to collect the eggs from the ovaries. This minimally invasive procedure is usually performed under sedation or anesthesia.

After retrieval, the eggs are immediately evaluated and prepared for freezing. At Neway Fertility, we utilize advanced vitrification techniques for flash freezing, which involves rapidly cooling the eggs to ultra-low temperatures to prevent ice crystal formation and preserve their viability. Vitrification is a highly effective method of egg freezing that has revolutionized the field of fertility preservation.

Innovative Approaches at Neway Fertility

At Neway Fertility, we are committed to offering the most advanced techniques and personalized care to our patients. In addition to traditional egg-freezing methods, we also offer egg freezing with in vitro maturation (IVM) for patients who may benefit from lower-dose hormone therapy before egg retrieval. IVM is a cutting-edge technique that involves retrieving immature eggs from the ovaries and maturing them in the laboratory before freezing. This approach may be suitable for women with certain medical conditions or those who prefer to minimize the use of fertility medications.

Our experienced fertility specialists at Neway Fertility will work closely with each patient to develop a customized egg-freezing treatment plan tailored to their individual needs and preferences. We prioritize safety, efficacy and patient comfort throughout the egg-freezing process and are dedicated to providing compassionate support and guidance every step of the way.

Egg freezing offers women the opportunity to take control of their fertility and preserve their options for the future. Whether you are considering egg freezing for personal or medical reasons, it is essential to consult with a qualified fertility specialist to explore your options and make informed decisions about your reproductive health.
