Thanks to medical advances in assisted reproduction women now have the possibility to decide when to form a family. Factors, such as being single, work or economic instability force women to postpone their motherhood – such delays can have a negative effect on a person’s ability to conceive.
One solution which is offered to women who want to wait before attempting to create a family is cryoconservation. For this process ovarian stimulation is undertaken to extract eggs by performing a puncture/aspiration of the ovaries.
The eggs are then frozen at -196C, which stops cell ageing until the moment of implantation. This process does not damage the eggs.
In order to achieve the greatest chance of pregnancy our specialists recommend that individuals undergo regular examinations to ensure optimum reproductive health and to start treatment before the age of 35 which will yield and preserve eggs of the highest quality which can be implanted at a later date.
This treatment also constitutes a reproductive solution for patients that must undergo chemotherapy or radiotherapy, or take medication that may affect their fertility (e.g. Lupus). This way, they will have the chance to preserve their eggs for conceiving a healthy child after overcoming any major illness which might affect their fertility health.
This treatment is performed by means of a personalized and controlled ovarian stimulation using next-gen protocols in order to obtain 12 - 14 eggs in each process. The more the number of treatments you undergo the higher the chances of success.
Pregnancy rates 30 - 70%.*
For whom is it appropriate?
- Patients under the age of 35.
- Women that are not looking forward to forming a family short-term.
- Patients suffering from cancer
- Lupus and other illnesses that require medication which may have a negative impact on fertility.
Treatment viability depends on medical diagnosis.
*Pregnancy rates depend on age, ovarian reserve, individual response to treatment and genetics. Displayed data are representative to the cases subject to study.
