These methods assure extending a female’s child bearing ability way past her innate limits. Physicians not only freeze eggs but also portions of ovarian tissue or the entire ovaries for imminent usage. Several experts have envisioned womb transplantation procedure.

The Mighty Freeze

Egg freezing has shown immense promise and been obtainable for over twenty years. Scientifically known as ‘oocyte cryopreservation’ –it was solely employed for young females with childbearing prospects endangered due to ailments (generally cancer) or its therapy (chemo, radiation therapy and surgical intervention), however met with limited success. But with advancements in the freezing procedure, it has been used with greater frequency among females intending on postponing child bearing for personal pressing reasons. Even though the ASRM (American Society for Reproductive Medicine) continues to label egg-freezing as ‘investigational’, nearly 1500 cryo-preserved-egg infants have been delivered across the globe.

Egg freezingSince it is not mandatory for treatment centres to cite egg-freezing to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), hence there fails to be a precise tally of the number of treatment centers conducting the method.

Evolving a method for freezing eggs with safety has proven to be a far greater challenge to doctors as compared to embryo or sperm cryopreservation. Earlier used, the gradual-freeze method produced iced crystals which during thawing lead to destruction of several eggs. Conception rates were that squat that egg cryopreservation was not deemed a feasible method of preserving fertility till present times.

Several vital advancements were noted in Japan where researchers created an enhanced freezing method known as vitrification which was able to surmount over nearly all obstacles and bestowed egg freezing a novel methodical legality. During this procedure, moisture removal from the egg is done and addition of an anti-freezing chemical substance is done prior to flash-chilling for preventing crystallization and thus leading to greater egg viability. Due to extreme reliability of the novel vitrification method, egg freezing has gained increasing popularity.

The advantages are apparent. Latest data has shown that eighty percent of eggs post-freezing via vitrification have survived after defrosting and conception rates are presently approx. forty-five percent. Several private clinics have exceeds this figure. N.Y. University that employs vitrification alongside gradual chilling, furnished information in the previous year showed a fifty-seven percent conception rate, surpassing the nationwide conception rate of traditional IVF employing non-freeze eggs.

Involved Costs

Freezing one’s eggs is hardly a laid-back affair or inexpensive technique. The procedure would commence similar to the method of harvesting eggs for in-vitro fertilization. A female would self-administer a hormone shot for stimulating egg creation. A physician would employ a needle for extracting eggs prior to them being put into liquid nitrogen storage till the time a need arises.

The costing for ovulation eliciting medicines, testing, egg removal, annual maintenance, then de-frosting, fertilizing and transfer, egg-freezing could turn out to be around ten thousand dollars for every cycle.
