Egg Freezing at the Fertility Center
Women needing assisted reproduction have an alternative for preserving their fertility and starting families later in life.
Eggs retrieved from a woman’s body can be cryogenically preserved before fertilization and result in healthy pregnancies down the road.
The Fertility Center offers a proven technology for egg freezing through a partnership with the Frozen Egg Bank, one of the nation’s leading cryopreservation programs.
Advantages of Egg Banking
Egg preservation offers several advantages:
- Cancer patients can safeguard their fertility before undergoing surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy
- Women concerned about decreased chances of pregnancy after age 35 can preserve their fertility
- Frozen eggs can be thawed and fertilized as needed with resulting embryos transferred
- Additional attempts at pregnancy are more affordable than repeating egg-stimulation therapy
- Frozen, unfertilized eggs can be discarded without the moral issues surrounding fertilized embryos
