Egg, Sperm and Embryo Freezing
Egg, Sperm and Embryo Freezing is increasingly popular. The technique involves freezing and storing egg, sperm or embryos so that they retain their quality and can be used at a later stage. This can be especially important for women as their egg quality can decrease significantly as they age
This advanced treatment was initially used to preserve fertility for cancer patients who would not traditionally be able to have children after undergoing certain cancer therapies.
Nowadays, younger women feel that freezing gives them an opportunity to ‘buy some time’. A chance to store healthy, young eggs allows them to find the right partner, focus on their career, and delay pregnancy whilst giving them a good chance of conceiving later in life.
