CryopreservationAs the founder and medical director of New Hope Fertility Center, Dr. John Zhang is an avid promoter of egg freezing social events covering:

  • What is egg freezing?
  • How is egg freezing done?
  • How to choose the best IVF center to freeze your eggs.
  • How many eggs do you need to freeze?
  • What is the cost of egg freezing?
  • What should you know before deciding to freeze your eggs?

Egg Freezing Social Events

When you sign up for an egg freezing consultation at one of our monthly events, you will receive:

  • A free consultation worth $500 plus an ultrasound
  • 6 months of free oocyte (egg) cryopreservation valued at $600 or more
  • A medication discount from Ferring Pharmaceuticals for women who qualify

Egg Freezing Candidates

Egg freezing promotes the overall health and future fertility of all women. This is especially true when a woman wants to postpone motherhood past her prime childbearing years. She may want to pursue her education, career, or find her soul mate before having a baby. Today, the medical marvel of egg freezing – oocyte cryopreservation – in conjunction with IVF preserves a woman’s fertility.

Natural Aging Process

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

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

Future Pregnancy

When she is ready to start building her family, the egg freezing process continues.

  • Her eggs are thawed and fertilized in vitro by injecting a single sperm cell into a single egg – Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)
  • The resulting embryos are cultured in vitro for up to 5 days (blastocyst stage)
  • A predetermined number of quality embryos are transferred into the woman’s uterus for implantation into the uterine lining to achieve pregnancy

Benefits of Freezing Your Eggs

biological-clockEgg freezing is an innovative method of preserving eggs for a time in the future when a woman is ready to start her family. Frozen eggs can also be donated to other couples who are unable to conceive due to poor quality eggs. Women choose to freeze their eggs for a wide variety of reasons. Today’s women must know all of their options to preserve their fertility for future family planning, including:

Egg Freezing Through IVF – Oocyte Cryopreservation

Egg freezing performed through In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is the most common type of fertility preservation treatment for women diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Through IVF, a woman’s natural egg production is stimulated with fertility drugs into producing several eggs – 10 to 15 typically per cycle. These eggs are then surgically retrieved and cryopreserved using an advanced technique known as vitrification.

Vitrification – Flash Freezing Method

New Hope Fertility Center in NYC is a world renowned provider of egg freezing treatment for today’s woman. Dr. John Zhang was one of the first doctors in the United States to implement vitrification as a method of freezing eggs. The Doctor was one of the first doctors in New York to facilitate a live birth using egg freezing fertility preservation.

Vitrification is a flash-freezing method preventing the formation of ice crystals between the cells forming an egg. Ice crystals can damage an egg’s cells.Read more: Benefits of Freezing Your Eggs

Preserving Your Fertility Through Egg Freezing in 2017

Too often, I hear stories of women who have been turned down by fertility clinics because they are difficult patients. These women have been declined based on their advanced reproductive age and/or poor prognosis for achieving a successful pregnancy through IVF treatment. At New Hope Fertility Center in NYC, age is never a discriminating factor for my patients.Why is this important? We do not boost our high IVF pregnancy success data by rejecting patients based on strict criteria. Taking on very difficult patients and helping them overcome their infertility encompasses the overall goal of our One Good Egg Policy. Here, we are committed to treating all patients suffering from infertility – regardless of their diagnosed difficulty. Bottom Line: To get pregnant successfully, only one good egg and one healthy sperm is needed.

New Trends in Egg Freezing

In recent years, egg freezing parties are being sponsored by many fertility clinics. Fertility specialist reach out to women wanting to know more about the medical phenomena of egg freezing to preserve their future fertility. Potential patient are invited to a social party where they will be educated and informed about the benefits of egg freezing.

Candidates for Egg Freezing

It’s very important to realize that egg freezing is not just beneficial to young women in their 20s. Today, many women in their late 30s or early 40s have successfully frozen their eggs.

These women were blessed with a baby when they decided the time is right for them to get pregnant. I recommend women take action to freeze their eggs in their mid to late 30s for the best chance of a successful pregnancy in their 40s.

Successful pregnancies achieve the highest rates when eggs are thawed and transferred to the patient within five years. However, oocytes can be frozen indefinitely.

As the Medical Director for New Hope Fertility Center, I see many women considering egg freezing in their late 30’s and early 40’s.Read more: Preserving Your Fertility Through Egg Freezing in 2017

Confronting The Biological Clock

JZ (4)Many women spend a large portion of their reproductive years trying to prevent pregnancy. Some women are focused on career while others are waiting for the right partner to start a family with.
