Nearly all women today are victims of the “ Fertility Time Bomb”. There are many reasons for which a women may want to start a family post 30 years of age.

But how to ensure a successful pregnancy at a later age ?
How to ensure your biological clock does not hamper your dream of starting a family?
It is a known fact that as women age, complications and abnormalities related to pregnancy, chances of miscarriage along with the probability of birth defects and disorders increases while conceiving power decreases. Hence, couples today are going through a constant struggle to enhance their childbearing years. The most attractive and safe option today for such couples is the technique of Embryo Cryopreservation or Freezing of Embryos which emerged due to the revolutionization of the reproductive technology in the early 1980’s. This technique is not only safe but has a very high success rate. It helps you preserve your fertility before it gets contorted.
WHAT IS EMBRYO CRYOPRESERVATION?
Embryo freezing or Embryo Cryopreservation is a technique in which ovaries are stimulated with hormones to produce multiple eggs, eggs are retrieved from the ovaries and taken to a lab where they get cooled to sub-zero temperatures and thawed at the right time. When an egg is frozen instead of an embryo, it is called Oocyte Cryopreservation.
It is an astounding fact that the more and more young women are getting their eggs/embryos frozen now. The average age of the women going for Embryo Cryopreservation has reduced from 38 years to 36 years of age taking the world average.
Who needs Embryo cryopreservation?
Women who want to delay their childbearing in order to pursue educational, career or other personal goals.
Women diagnosed with cancer.
Women with a family history of early menopause.
When is the right time to get your eggs frozen?
The best time to get your eggs frozen also called at Oocyte Cryopreservation is in your early 20’S and 30’s to get maximum advantage of premium egg quality and quantity due to young age. As your biological clock starts ticking, the eggs start diminishing in number as well as in their cellular integrity. This explains why a woman in her 40’s has a lesser chance of becoming pregnant than a woman in her early years.
What is the procedure involved in Egg Freezing?
A hormone injection procedure is followed to retrieve the eggs. Once, the eggs are adequately mature, they are removed with a needle placed through the vagina under ultrasonic guidance. This process is done under vaginal sedation and is not at all painful. After the eggs are retrieved, they are frozen for the required period of time, after which they are thawed, fertilized and transferred to the uterus as embryos.
How long can the eggs remain frozen?
The eggs are frozen at a temperature of -196 degrees Celcius. The long-term storage of eggs/embryos does not cause any decline in quality. There have been cases where embryos stored for 10 years have yielded perfect results.
Is egg freezing safe?
Thousands of babies are born worldwide from frozen eggs and a research conducted on a huge sample shows no signs of increased birth-related defects or any complications at a later stage.
