What is egg freezing, anyway?
Egg freezing is preserving your fertility by retrieving some of your eggs from your ovaries, freezing them, and storing them for future use. It's like hitting the pause button on your fertility until you're ready to press play!
Who should consider egg freezing?
While age is just a number, we recommend egg freezing for women between the ages of 30 and 40, ideally in their early-to-mid-30s. If you've got a family history of premature ovarian failure or early menopause, you might want to consider it even earlier. Think of egg freezing as an insurance policy for your eggs!
How does egg freezing work?
In a natural menstrual cycle, your body produces one superstar egg. But with egg freezing, we're all about quantity! We use special medications that mimic the ones your body produces to stimulate your ovaries. This magic combo helps your ovaries produce multiple mature eggs (or follicles). Once they are ready, we gently retrieve them with a minimally invasive procedure. Those mature eggs then go through a "flash-freeze" process called vitrification, and voilà, they're safely stored in liquid nitrogen for as long as you need them!
How does IVF FLORIDA choose candidates for egg freezing?
We've got your back! To determine if egg freezing is right for you, we'll start with some simple diagnostic testing. We'll check your ovarian reserve (that's a fancy way of saying we'll measure your reproductive hormone levels and see how many eggs you've got). Then, we'll combine those results with your medical history, and our team of experts will give you personalized recommendations. It's like having a fertility fairy godmother!
Does IVF FLORIDA support cancer patients?
Absolutely! We understand that life doesn't always go according to plan, especially when it comes to an unexpected cancer diagnosis. That's why our fertility specialists work closely with newly diagnosed patients and their cancer teams. We offer immediate consultation and the best preservation options based on your cancer treatment plan. We'll even coordinate with your cancer therapies because we believe hope and dreams should never take a backseat!
