Women now have the option of freezing their ovarian tissue to preserve future fertility. Through ovarian tissue freezing technology, a woman has a good chance of conceiving a biologically-related baby in the future. A woman’s frozen ovarian tissue can be later thawed and transplanted back into her ovary. This revolutionary fertility preservation option is an alternative to egg freezing. Ovarian tissue freezing has proven to be a great option for women trying to preserve both their fertility and hormones.
There are many women who should consider freezing their ovarian tissue to preserve their future fertility.
Ovarian tissue freezing is growing more and more popular because it is a proven safe and successful procedure to preserve a woman’s future fertility. Ovarian tissue freezing is accomplished through an outpatient surgical procedure – laparoscopy. A layer of the outer membrane of one of the woman’s ovaries – the preserved ovary – is removed. The outer membrane of an ovary is where a large number of a woman’s immature eggs are located. This ovarian tissue is cryopreserved for later transplant to the woman’s other ovary – the non-preserved ovary. The National Institutes of Health reported that [h]uman ovarian tissue transplantation has resulted in the birth of over 70 children worldwide. In most cases, the transplanted ovarian tissue strips will regain function and will, once again, produce eggs and hormones.
