Know Your Fertility Preservation Options: Ovarian Tissue Freezing

You can preserve your future fertility through ovarian tissue freezing. A woman only releases one egg per month during her natural cycle. It only takes one good quality egg to have a healthy baby. There are many females who should consider ovarian tissue freezing if they want to preserve their fertility and have a family in the future.

Candidates for Ovarian Tissue Freezing

There are many females who should consider ovarian tissue freezing.

  • Female children who do not have fully developed ovaries
  • Female children or teenage girls who have been diagnosed with cancer
  • Women in their prime reproductive years who have been diagnosed with cancer
  • Women wanting to postpone motherhood past their prime reproductive years
  • Women wanting to donate their ovarian tissue to help women who are unable to produce good eggs

Ovarian Tissue Freezing

Ovarian tissue freezing is accomplished through an outpatient surgical procedure by removing a thin piece of the outer membrane of one of the woman’s ovary – the preserved ovary. The outer membrane of an ovary is where a woman’s eggs are located. This ovarian tissue is cryopreserved for later transplant to the woman’s other ovary – the non-preserved ovary.

According to a 2015 study published in the journal of Human Reproduction, 10 out of 32 women facing chemotherapy were able to conceive naturally after undergoing ovarian tissue freezing before cancer treatment.

The National Institutes of Health reported that [h]uman ovarian tissue transplantation has resulted in the birth of over 70 children worldwide. Look: Preserving female fertility through ovarian tissue freezing is trending today because it is a proven safe and successful procedure.

Discover the Frozen Embryo Transfer – FET – Facts

Cryopreservation (3)

Cryopreservation (3)The flash-freezing technique of vitrification makes it possible to prepare fresh embryos rapidly for cryopreservation. Using the vitrification method, embryos freeze quickly and damaging ice crystals do not form between cells. New Hope Fertility Center is a leader in embryo freezing. Dr. John Zhang was one of the first doctors in the United States to implement the vitrification method of embryo freezing.

Frozen Embryo Transfer

Freezing excess, quality embryos after a fresh IVF cycle will increase a couple’s chances of conceiving in the future. Through embryo cryopreservation technology, couples can avoid the financial and physical strain of undergoing multiple fresh IVF cycles. Pregnancy success rate for a Frozen Embryo Transfers (FET) is higher than a fresh transfer because a woman has the opportunity to wait until her uterine lining returns to an ideal state for embryo implantation.

Benefits of the Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET)

Through Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET), couples can try again – sooner than later – if their fresh IVF cycle fails. If the fresh IVF cycle is successful, the couple can undergo a FET at a time when they decide to have more children in the future.

Bonus Benefits of FET

  • Couples can plan their family through gender selection
  • Couples increase their chances for a healthy singleton pregnancy
  • Healthy pregnancies have been achieved after an embryo has been frozen for up to 10 years

World class laboratory technology offered at New Hope Fertility Center has increased pregnancy success rates. Only high quality embryos are cryopreserve to be later transferred in future FET procedures. This success has made FETs an increasingly popular option to consider before considering a subsequent fresh IVF cycle. With FET, couples can increase their chance of pregnancy per fresh egg retrieval and ultimately save money by avoiding the expense of another fresh IVF cycle.Read more: Discover the Frozen Embryo Transfer – FET – Facts

Egg Freezing in 2018

The natural aging process has a dramatic effect on the quality of a woman’s eggs. A woman in her prime reproductive years (early 20s and early 30s) has the option of freezing her eggs to preserve her future fertility into her advanced reproductive years (mid-30s and early 40s + beyond):

  • Today’s modern women who are focused on their education and career opportunities
  • Women whose circumstances in life are not presently conducive to rearing children
  • Women who have not be able to find their life partner
  • Women who are facing cancer treatment – chemo or radiation – that could damage the quality of their eggs and/or destroy their ovarian function by sending them into premature menopause
  • Women who are undergoing IVF and are likely to produce excessive eggs, but have ethical or religious concerns over freezing embryos

Egg Freezing Process in Conjunction with IVF

Egg freezing is accomplished through a fresh IVF cycle, stopping short of egg fertilization in vitro.

  • Stimulation of a woman’s ovaries using fertility drugs to produce several egg follicles during one fresh IVF cycle
  • Harvesting eggs from the woman’s ovaries through surgical retrieval
  • Preparation and freezing of the eggs for preservation through a process known as vitrification
  • The rapid-freezing technique of vitrification makes it possible to freeze eggs quickly so that ice crystals do not form between cells
