Now. Your choice. The future. Your choice.
Maybe you know you will want a baby someday, maybe you’re just not sure. Either way, you want to make sure you that when and if the time is right, you’ll have the best chance to succeed.
Your eggs (oocytes) are the best they will ever be. Your fertility is likely the best it will ever be. But you're not ready to have a baby. Maybe you have work or life goals you want or need to reach. Maybe you don't know who you want to have a baby with or if you would rather have a baby on your own. Egg freezing lets you protect your fertility, let's you take whatever time you need without having to worry about your future fertility.
Egg Freezing Assessment
Is egg (oocyte) freezing right for you? We want you to make a fully informed decision about cryopreserving your eggs, so you'll start your journey with a fertility assessment and interview. This will include an ultrasound of your ovaries to see how many follicles (eggs) you have and to see what your reproductive hormone levels tell us about your current ovarian reserve. We will explain the details of egg freezing and answer all your questions. Then and only then, after you fully understand egg freezing, can make the decision that's right for you..
Once your decision about egg freezing has been made, we will develop recommendations for your personalized treatment cycle plan. Your fertility care advocate will make sure you have a clear understanding of everything that's involved that's involved in egg cryopreservation and that all of your questions have been answered. You will be provided a personalized daily treatment calendar that lets you know the best way to do everything during your egg freezing cycle. After you review your treatment plan and make sure it's right for you, then the treatment portion of your egg freezing plan will begin.
Ovaries usually just make only one egg (oocyte) each menstrual cycle. By taking ovarian stimulation medications that include FSH and LH-activity each day for about 10 days, you will have the chance to create more high quality eggs to freeze. During your stimulation protocol, you’ll come to Gen 5 Fertility for regular pelvic ultrasounds and hormone tests to monitor your ovaries response to the medications. Of course, we will adjust your dosages as needed to generate the right number of follicles and then eggs. Once your reproductive hormone levels and follicle sizes are where they should be, we will provide you with one final medication, usually hCG to allow your eggs to become mature and to get ready for the ovulation process. A little less than 36 hours later, your eggs will be retrieved.
Egg Retrieval Day
You will receive some gentle anesthesia through your IV while your eggs (oocytes) are being retrieved under direct ultrasound guidance. This usually takes only about 10-15 minutes, and you will usually be able to leave Gen 5 an hour after the egg retrieval is finished. You may be a little sore but almost all women return to their usual routine the following day. As soon as your eggs are retrieved, they are evaluated by one of our embryologists and the mature eggs are frozen ("cryopreserved") that same day. The eggs will be monitored carefully while stored in liquid nitrogen at Gen 5. You will receive a full report showing the number and quality of your frozen eggs (oocytes).
