There are many different reasons why you might be considering freezing your eggs, including if you know you would like to become pregnant and give birth in the future. If circumstances are not currently right for you to conceive, but you are in the prime years for ovulation, fertility preservation is in your best interest.
At Palm Beach Fertility Center, we recommend and encourage our healthy patients to preserve their eggs as early as possible. Contact us today to learn more.
The ability to freeze a woman’s eggs is a goal that we have been working towards for several years. Until recently, freezing unfertilized eggs has been very difficult. The technical limitations of freezing the largest cell in the human body without damaging it by internal ice crystals has been more difficult to overcome than expected.
Recently we have perfected a new technique called vitrification. This technique allows us to freeze eggs in a special cryoprotectant solution, which enables us to preserve the eggs in a suspended glasslike state. Recent refinements to vitrification technique including closed straws for freezing to avoid egg loss have enabled us to bring this technology to "prime time" for our patients' benefit.
By preserving unfertilized eggs, many more women will be able to take advantage of this latest fertility preservation technique. By simply administering a small amount of fertility medication, performing egg retrieval and freezing eggs, a woman can insure against her uncertain biological future and prevent reproductive aging. This very exciting development has the potential to take much of the stress away from women who feel their “biological clock” is ticking louder each day.
We are very excited to be able to offer this groundbreaking technique to our patients here at Palm Beach Fertility Center. If you would like to make an appointment to discuss your options, contact us now at (888) 819-5177.
