Egg Freezing is ideal for women who are not yet ready to begin a family or for women undergoing 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.
Ovarian Tissue Freezing is an option for patients who have radiology or chemotherapy cancer treatments scheduled, which affect a woman’s future fertility status. Women who do not have sufficient time to complete an egg or embryo freezing cycle may find this a desirable solution. Our laboratory can freeze the ovarian tissue until it is ready to be placed back into the patient after they complete their treatments. The ovarian tissue can naturally regenerate within the woman’s body.
Embryo Freezing is a treatment cycle done with or without stimulation medications before the cancer treatments. This treatment is known as one of the safest protocols for the individual. The patient is monitored over a period of time to determine the ideal time to retrieve her eggs to be inseminated, cultured in our lab and frozen as embryos.
