Freezing Your Eggs for IVF Cycles Later in Life

How You Can Freeze Your Own Eggs & Cost of Doing It

Our clinics use the latest cryopreservation approach, which dramatically increase cryosurvival (percentage of eggs/embryos that are alive after thawing) of embryos. Traditionally, IVF clinics used the slow freezing method that has been used since the 1980’s. Our clinics use rapid freezing technique recently developed in Japan called Vitrification. With Vitrification, the temperature is lowered at 23,000 degrees C° per minute. That is 70,000 times faster than in traditional approach. Such rapid cooling coupled with cryoprotactant fluids prevents formation of ice crystals in embryos.

Our fertility doctors typically recommend freezing embryos rather than eggs. Statistics show that pregnancy rates are just as high in properly frozen embryos as in fresh embryos which have never been frozen. The same cannot be said for frozen eggs; pregnancy rates for frozen eggs are 15-20 lower than those for frozen embryos.
