Egg Freezing is a technique where in mature eggs are collected from the ovaries and cooled to sub zero temperatures and stored for future use.
We use the latest technique called vitrification for egg freezing, which gives excellent results. With this technique eggs can be frozen for several years. When needed, the frozen eggs are thawed, fertilized with husband’s sperm and the developing embryo can then be inserted into the uterus. The chances of pregnancy following embryo transfer are generally good but are dependent on the age of the patient at the time of egg freezing.
It is relatively simple and safe procedure and with close monitoring there are no major risks to the women undergoing stimulation and egg collection. There is a large number of babies born worldwide using this technique and studies have shown that there are no additional risks of either chromosomal or other abnormalities in these babies when compared to general population.
