Egg freezing (oocyte cryopreservation) involves a process similar to In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), in terms of the hormonal medications required to stimulate the production of mature eggs, and the surgical retrieval of eggs from a woman’s ovaries.

Cryopreservation is a laboratory procedure, designed to enable procreation. It will allow conservation of non-fertilized oocytes with the intent of fertilization at a later date and a subsequent transfer of embryo in the uterus of the client for her own reproductive needs.

The "Cryo" Program is used in the event that oocytes are retrieved after an ovarian stimulation without the intention of fertilizing them right away.

Description of Procedure:

Step 1: Ovarian Stimulation
The ovaries are stimulated with injectable fertility drugs for about ten days. The growth of the eggs is monitored by measuring hormone levels with blood tests and examining the ovaries by ultrasound for many consecutive days during the cycle.

Step 2: Retrieval of the Eggs
When the eggs seem to have reached maturity, needle aspiration of the follicular fluid, guided by ultrasound, is performed to retrieve as many eggs as possible. This procedure is usually done under intravenous sedation (Fentanyl, Versed). If general anesthesia is deemed necessary, additional costs will incur.

Step 3: Cryopreservation of Oocytes
The oocyte cryopreservation will be conducted by a method called: “vitrification”. The oocytes will be placed in a very small volume of vitrification medium and will then be cooled at an extremely rapid rate. The fast freezing eliminates the formation of ice crystals in the oocytes. The vitrified oocytes will be stored in a container filled with liquid nitrogen and maintained at a temperature of -196˚C until such time as they are to be thawed and fertilized.
When the client decides to utilize her frozen oocytes, the endometrial lining will be prepared and synchronized with the thawing process of the oocytes. After thawing, oocytes fertilization will be attempted by a technique called intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), and the fertilized embryo(s) will be kept in culture for 3 to 5 days until finally, there will be a transfer of the embryo(s). Any embryo(s) deemed abnormal will not be transferred.
