Vitrification Allows Preservation of Unfertilized Eggs
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.

Vitrification Egg Freezing in Palm Beach
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.
Using the Most Advanced Fertility Techniques
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.
- Other reasons that a woman may want to freeze her eggs include the following:
- Uncertain reproductive future
- Positive BRCA test
- Cancer diagnosis
- Impending chemo or radiation therapy
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
