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 you 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 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 beginning of your egg freezing plan will begin.
Ovaries usually just make only one egg (oocyte) each menstrual cycle. But by taking ovarian stimulation medications 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 retrieve multiple 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, we will perform the egg retrieval process.
You will receive some gentle anesthesia through your IV while your eggs (oocytes) are being retrieved under direct ultrasound guidance. This usually takes only 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. We will send you a full report showing the number and quality of your frozen eggs (oocytes). Then your frozen eggs will be monitored carefully until you’re ready to take the next step.
