Egg / Embryo Freezing

What is Egg / Embryo Freezing?

Freeze Your Fertile Prime with the Help of Egg / Embryo Freezing
In the 21st century, IVF and other advances in the fertility field have finally given the human race an option to preserve their fertile prime. Fertility is a very important subject if a person is planning to pass on his or her genetic legacy to the world. Egg freezing or embryo freezing has emerged as the new practice amongst women passing from their prime fertility age. This process helps them save their fertile eggs during their prime time of life. In the later run, with the help of IVF, they can enjoy their motherhood more comfortably. At the turn of this century, medical experts were thinking about the success of both these processes. There were many myths that were prevailing in the market. Some people even ruled them out as a gimmick as well. Now, in the second decade of the 21st century, medical journals are publishing new success stories and at least 5000 success stories are already present there. The success of embryo freezing and egg freezing processes has already given rise to a culture where sociologists across the world are expecting to witness a sea of change in the culture of some urban societies. We cannot deny the importance of a successful career in the life of a couple. For many couples, having a successful and stable career life is the first post towards making babies. It means they want to jump into parenthood well-prepared. In its initial run, both embryo freezing and eggs freezing were the other sub-processes in the act of IVF. However, with the passage of time, both these processes have figured out some different roles in society. Now, they are being used in order to win the race against time. Social norms attached to the timings of starting a family were actually designed to meet the biological needs of parenthood. All these social norms were standing in order to support the biological factors like the age of fertility largely. With the arrival of processes like IVF and others, now people are living a life of their own choices devoid of their own biological clock.
What Is the Concept of Frozen Eggs?
Frozen egg is a common term used for a preserved female ovum. The process of female egg preservation takes place in three steps.

In the first step, an IVF expert deciphers the best time for conducting an IVF cycle.

Once it is done, then in the next step, an egg is separated from the female body.

In the third and final step, this matured egg is stored in a bank. Here, it is kept under the temperature of minus one ninety-six degrees Celsius. Roughly speaking, an egg can be preserved for around nine to ten years. This entire process is also known as the egg freezing process.

What Is the Ratio Success for Getting Pregnant When a Person Is Dealing with Frozen Eggs?
The fertility of frozen eggs is a big question whose answer we are all seeking. In normal cases, IVF experts pick out the IVF cycle for the best results. It means, they always search for the healthiest of the eggs all the time. If we try to conclude various studies related to the success of frozen eggs, then we find that, roughly, on 60 percent of the occasions, these eggs meet with success. In other words, we can say that egg preservation can emerge as an effective technique in the near future and it can even give rise to a new social culture where females can enjoy the prime time of their career without any problem.
Embryo / Egg Freezing – Which Technique Is Better and How the Two Differ?

When we talk about egg freezing, we are only dealing with the female factor of any pregnancy. Embryo freezing is a different thing. Here you need the participation of both male and female factors simultaneously. During the process of embryo freezing, the support of IVF techniques is required. It means, first a healthy ovum is removed from a female body, then sperm is separated from the semen, and finally, it is fertilized. After the formation of an embryo, it is finally stored. These embryos are also known as frozen embryos. When we compare a frozen embryo with a frozen egg then, in general, we can say that frozen embryos have a better chance of survival against the crystal formation that takes place during the course of freezing. Frozen embryo transfer success rates are very high; according to estimation, on ninety percent of the occasions, it serves the purpose well.

Do We Require a Storage Agreement before Storing Embryos and Eggs?
Yes! An agreement is required, where you are required to fill in all the necessary fields. Most of the countries have their own formats working. Here local regulations and international standards are covered up and set for the services when a person goes for any such deal. It is a requirement to keep this storage process under the book. In normal cases, an agreement may last for ten years, and this is why it is very important for a person to read all the offer documents very carefully before going through the process.
How Many Eggs or Embryos Should Be Stored for a Single Pregnancy Attempt?

Ideally, most of the experts prefer to store at least ten eggs or six to seven embryos for the purpose of a single pregnancy attempt. Here, we would also like to tell you that, during a single IVF cycle, a woman can produce 20 eggs.

How Is the Process of Freezing Eggs and Embryos Dependent on the Age of the Female?

By freezing an egg or an embryo, a female or a couple is actually freezing their fertile age. A woman freezing her eggs at the age of 27, will have significantly higher chances of pregnancy than a woman freezing her eggs at the age of 40.

Egg retrieval is the first step in IVF, where the mother’s eggs are extracted from her ovaries, after she takes hormone-inducing medications, to fertilize them in a lab with sperm. The resultant embryos are inserted back into the uterus for implantation.
