Egg Freezing Process


Mature eggs are removed from the ovaries and are frozen without being fertilized with semen. The standard and most successful way to promote egg development for Egg Freezing is stimulation with injectible hormones. Your fertility center staff will coordinate removing the mature eggs by needle aspiration under ultrasound guidance.

Mature eggs are available after puberty and the process of stimulating and removing them takes approximately 12-14 days per cycle.

Frozen eggs are then stored in long-term storage facilities like Fairfax Cryobank until you are ready to use them.

Egg freezing is an experimental option. Although pregnancy rates are lower than with frozen embryos, oocyte freezing and thawing techniques are continually improving.  There are approximately 100 babies born to date using frozen eggs.
