Elective Oocyte Cryopreservation (Egg Freezing)
- Category: Infertility Treatments
Our experience in fertility preservation is unparalleled in the world. Fertility and egg quality declines with age. As women age, their oocytes are less likely to be fertilized as healthy embryos and as a result, birth defects (chromosomal) and pregnancy failures increase, what is described as low egg quality. We have performed groundbreaking research and showed that this happens because older eggs cannot repair DNA damage as well. This underscores the importance of conceiving at younger ages or preserving fertility if pregnancy will be delayed till later ages. We have also performed groundbreaking research in egg freezing. Our recent study shows the specific success rates at each age after freezing certain number of eggs with the slow freezing or vitrification method.
