Today’s modern woman has a lot on her plate and sometimes the prospect of having children is desirable, but the timing is not right. You can take control of your fertility by preserving your eggs through freezing. Neway Fertility offers this procedure using the most advanced technologies available, and we do it in our center.
There are several reasons why delaying pregnancy may be the best option for you. You may want to freeze your eggs if you are a woman who:
- would like to preserve your eggs when they are at their highest quality
- is single or married, with or without a partner and not ready to have children at this time
- will be receiving cancer treatment with radiation or chemotherapy
- needs to have her ovaries removed
- has a genetic history of early menopause, endometriosis or premature ovarian failure
Egg preservation is a good option for the woman who wants to be in charge of her fertility and determine for herself when it is a good time to start a family.
How it Works
The egg preservation procedure requires the patient to take daily injections for 8-10 days. You will be monitored in our center every 2-3 days. When your eggs are ready for retrieval, they are collected and prepared for freezing. We use the most advanced vitrification technique, and the eggs are flash-frozen and stored right here at Neway Fertility. When you are ready, you may return to our office to use your eggs when and how you choose.
Egg Freezing with In Vitro Maturation (IVM)
Neway is the only fertility center in the United States to use our unique IVM technologies as part of the egg freezing process. Patients who choose to use less medication and have fewer monitoring visits choose this procedure. In contrast to the 8-10 days of high dose hormonal medications, with IVM a lower dose is used for 2-3 days, after which the eggs are retrieved. The immature eggs go through the maturation process in the laboratory. Those eggs that achieve maturity are frozen in a similar manner as those retrieved in a traditional egg freezing cycle.
IVM is for the woman who does not want to take large amounts of hormones or who has been diagnosed with hormone-sensitive cancer, such as breast cancer. It is also a good option for women who have been diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome or have a high risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome.
