Egg Freezing- What it is, Best Age for it, & How will Eggs be Used in the Future?

What is freezing eggs? 

Women can freeze their eggs or oocytes using the mature oocyte cryopreservation or egg freezing technique for use in the future. Egg Freezing Clinic in Delhi like Baby Soon Fertility and IVF Centre provide the facility for egg freezing.

Women may choose egg freezing if they are receiving chemotherapy for cancer or are otherwise not quite ready to start a family but wish to store their eggs for later use. 

Although the process of freezing eggs is generally painless and quite safe, some parts of it may be uncomfortable.

What age is ideal for freezing eggs? 

The optimal time to preserve eggs is when the ovaries are still developing. This relies on a variety of factors, including your lifestyle and most significantly your genetics and family history. The ideal age range is between late 20s and early 30s. 

Although there is no set age limit, it is generally not advised to freeze eggs after the age of 40 due to low ovarian reserve and poor egg quality.

What will Eggs be Used in the Future? 

When used, the cryopreserved eggs are placed in a warming solution and evaluated. They are thawed in a controlled environment before being fertilised with your partner's or a donor's sperm. 

Because cryopreserved eggs have a hard shell, it is necessary to fertilise them using a technique called Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI). 

In this, each egg receives a single sperm injection. After the fertilised egg is attentively examined for three to five days, the embryo is put into the uterus to induce pregnancy after the uterus has been prepared with the aid of some medicines (hormones).

What is IUI?

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) is a basic fertility technique in which processed (concentrated and washed) sperms are implanted into a woman’s uterus during ovulation to boost her chances of becoming pregnant.

Is IUI different from IVF treatment?

Fertilization (meeting of egg and sperm) occurs in the body during IUI (fallopian tubes). IVF, on the other hand, is carried out in a laboratory.

What is the success rate of IUI?

The success rate of IUI is approximately 20%.

What is the difference between stimulated IVF and Natural IVF?

Stimulated IVF- A woman takes medicines/injections for 9 to 12 days to stimulate both of her ovaries to generate and mature multiple egg follicles. During the stimulation phase, a physician will do ultrasounds to track the follicles growth until they reach a specified size (18-22mm). Natural IVF- In this cycle, instead of stimulating your ovaries to produce multiple eggs, the Natural Cycle IVF Process is meant to select that one egg that your body produces naturally.

What is the advantage of natural IVF cycle?

Multiple pregnancy risk is reduced. Reduces the high costs associated with stimulation medicines. Reduces the risk of drug-related adverse effects.

What is Controlled ovarian hyper stimulation (COH)?

Controlled ovarian hyper stimulation is a procedure in which the patient’s ovaries are stimulated for 10-12 days with hormone injections (gonadotrophins) in order to obtain the highest number of mature oocytes (eggs).The response to these injections is tracked by ultrasound, and after the cohort of follicles reaches 18-22mm (minimum 4-5), a trigger injection is administered, followed by ovum pickup (egg collection) 34-36 hours later.

What are the risks associated with controlled ovarian hyperstimulation?

Ovaries of some females might respond excessively to the fertility drugs. OHSS(Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome) occurs in a minority of females who overrespond, symptoms of which include, vomiting, nausea, severe discomfort, abdominal distension and dehydration. Note: The patient should immediately notify the clinician in case of such symptoms
