Elizabeth Ginsburg, MD, Medical Director, In Vitro Fertilization Program in the Center for Infertility and Reproductive Surgery at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, discusses elective egg freezing.
Egg freezing is a process in which a woman's eggs are retrieved, frozen and stored in liquid nitrogen for later use. When a woman is ready become pregnant, her eggs are carefully thawed, fertilized in vitro, and transferred to her uterus as embryos.
The decision to freeze your eggs isn’t a medical decision, but a personal one. We know that by the time a woman reaches her early 30s, egg quality and quantity start to decrease. Beginning around age 35, this decline becomes more rapid.
Many women choose to freeze their eggs, because they aren’t planning to become pregnant in the next few years, but they want the option to conceive in the future.
If you are considering egg freezing, you should consult a physician who specializes in fertility and assisted reproduction, preferably one who has experience with elective egg freezing.
