Discover the empowering possibilities of egg freezing, an innovative fertility option that's reshaping narratives around family planning. At Ovom Care, we’re proud to provide a space where every person, regardless of where they identify on the LGBTQIA+ spectrum, can explore and understand their fertility options. Today, we’re delving into the world of egg freezing, providing a detailed insight into what the procedure entails and how it might suit your personal fertility journey.
Egg freezing, or oocyte cryopreservation, is a procedure designed to preserve a woman's fertility by freezing and storing her eggs for potential future use. Ideal for those who wish to delay childbearing, egg freezing empowers individuals by giving them the freedom to choose when they want to start a family. The procedure involves several steps, including ovarian stimulation, egg retrieval, and ultimately, the freezing and storage of the eggs in a specialized lab.
Egg freezing is a valuable resource for various individuals and families. It may be an ideal choice for individuals undergoing certain medical treatments, such as chemotherapy, which might affect fertility. Similarly, individuals transitioning from female to male who wish to preserve their fertility for future use may also find egg freezing advantageous. Furthermore, for those who wish to focus on their career, personal development, or simply aren't ready for parenthood, egg freezing offers the flexibility to plan a family on your own terms.
The egg freezing process begins with a series of hormonal injections to stimulate the ovaries to produce multiple eggs. Regular ultrasounds and blood tests ensure the eggs are developing correctly. Once matured, these eggs are retrieved in a minimally invasive procedure and flash-frozen using a technique called vitrification. These frozen eggs can remain viable for many years until you decide it's the right time for you to start a family.
Egg freezing success rates vary and are influenced by several factors such as age at the time of freezing and the number of eggs stored. Generally, eggs frozen at a younger age have a higher chance of leading to a successful pregnancy. It’s important to have a thorough discussion with your fertility specialist to understand your unique circumstances and potential outcomes.

We’re committed to providing you with the highest quality care, rooted in respect, understanding, and medical expertise.
