The benefits of egg freezing

The benefits of egg freezing

One of the delicate beauties of life is that we never know what is around the corner. We plan as best as we can, but when it comes down to it, life is a game we have to play out. Having a baby can be an extremely exciting and overwhelming decision and when naturally conceiving is not an option, the IVF treatments we offer here at CREATE are a very real option. But you don’t have to make decision now.

We understand the consideration and life-altering change having a baby can bring. Some people may not be ready to bring a baby into the world at this moment in time but may want one further down the line. Our Egg Freezing service allows you to prepare for this eventuality by allowing you to store your eggs for use at a later date.

The Egg Vitrification (fast freezing) process allows you to preserve your eggs for use in IVF conception at a time that suits you. There are a number of things to consider when having a baby from financial worries to personal assessments. Our service allows you the time you need to carefully consider your options before finally making a decision.

Why choose CREATE?

Professor RC Chian who is a pioneer of vitrification and IVM (in vitro maturation) is our scientific director. He has trained our embryologists in these techniques. Our laboratory offers an expert and state of the art technology in vitrification and IVM. Furthermore, we can help you to freeze your eggs with Natural or Mild cycle which have less side effects and is gentler on the woman.

With Natural IVF/IVM, you have the opportunity to freeze eggs without any delay which is particularly beneficial for those diagnosed with cancer where time is of the essence. With Mild IVF, your body is not exposed to high amount of stimulation drugs. Your treatment is fitted within your own natural cycle giving you the control of treatment cycle. Fewer drugs not only means fewer side effects but also a reduced risks of Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS). At CREATE, we deeply care about health and safety of women undergoing fertility preservation or treatment. We are proud to have an excellent record for safety and success.

But what are the Benefits of Egg Vitrification?

The process of rapidly freezing the egg cell is an extremely intricate scientific process. The problem, in previous methods, was that a slow-freezing process was used but, on many occasions, was not successful due to ice crystals forming within the cell, damaging its structure. By dehydrating the cell using specialised freezing techniques, the eggs are able to freeze quickly before ice crystals can form.

As well as preserving your fertility for later use, there are many other benefits. Patients diagnosed with cancer can use this method to freeze their eggs before cancer treatment for use after their treatment is completed and they have recovered. Similarly, age-related fertility can be overcome as the frozen eggs from younger years are used later during the IVF treatment.
