Social egg freezing

Why come to O.L.G.A. Fertility Clinic for egg freezing?

  • Unlike many european countries, you can use your frozen eggs even you may remain single
  • We are doing IVF and ET with your eggs until your 51st birthday

Why would I freeze my eggs?

When a women is born she is born with all of her eggs stored safely in her ovaries, ready for if and when she decides to start her family. However, as she becomes older so do the eggs that she has stored. Sadly the older that these eggs become the more difficult it becomes for them to create a pregnancy, or for that pregnancy to develop into the birth of a baby.

It is recognised and accepted that in today’s modern society many women will choose to postpone having children till later for many different reasons.  For example: to get their career on a solid footing, or to find the right ‘life’ partner.  It may also be that proposed treatments such as for cancer, or removal of ovaries and tubes spur the woman to preserve her fertility by freezing her eggs.

Egg aging process starts already after 30 years. It results in the increase of proportion of unhealthy abnormal eggs, incapable of creating a pregnancy and/or a healthy baby.

In women

  • 20-25% eggs are already abnormal in the age of 30
  • 40-45% of eggs are abnormal in the age of 35
  • 70-75% of abnormal eggs in the age of 40

it is hardly possible to find normal eggs in the age above 43. Hence we offer social egg freezing to women before their 35-th birthday.

Under the age of 35 at least 50% of a woman’s eggs are still healthy and capable of producing a pregnancy if there are no other fertility issues present.  If her eggs are collected and frozen this can help to give her security and comfort of starting a family in the coming years, with benefit of younger healthier eggs. However, even though the eggs that are frozen may be young it is not guaranteed that when the time comes the eggs will successfully thaw or create a pregnancy.  

How are the eggs collected?

To collect the eggs the woman must first undertake stimulation through the use of medication so as to create many eggs. Once the eggs are ready they can be collected by the doctor, under general anaesthetic, by passing a very fine needle through the vagina and into each ovary. Once collected these precious eggs can be taken to the laboratory for Vitrification and storage in our bank. The woman can now return to her daily life safe in the knowledge that we are looking after her eggs ready for the future if and when she decides to use them.

The freezing process

Our team at O.L.G.A. Fertility Clinic is very happy to help women that have decided to carry out egg freezing  for social, medical or personal reasons and unlike many other clinics have the capabilities and knowledge to safely freeze and store the collected eggs in our advanced and extensive egg bank.
