One of the most significant developments in reproductive technology is vitrification or cryopreservation of oocytes (eggs). This revolutionary “flash-freezing” technique allows the delicate eggs to be frozen quickly enough to prevent damage and allows us to freeze and later thaw the eggs for use in IVF cycles offers women new options in fertility preservation.
Vitrification of oocytes gives women the chance to freeze their eggs while younger, preserve their fertility, and reduce the chances of miscarriage and birth defects associated with “egg age.”
Oocyte cryopreservation is considered to be an approved procedure for fertility preservation by the American Society of Reproductive Medicine. Frozen eggs storage is offered for a nominal annual fee at ART Reproductive Center, located within our center.
