Benefits Of Egg Freezing & Embryo Freezing (Ivf)

Benefits Of Egg Freezing & Embryo Freezing (Ivf)

Vitrification, the ability to freeze and thaw embryos, eggs, and sperm, is one of the most significant advancements in ART (Assisted Reproductive Technology) to date. Many IVF patients are able to reap the additional benefits of egg freezing and embryo freezing. Here we have listed some benefits if you are considering these option –

Benefits of Egg Freezing –

1) When Egg Supply Is Limited

Peak fertility occurs in your early twenties, when monthly pregnancy rates are about 25%. Pregnancy rates drop to 15% per month for women in their 30s, and by the time you reach your 40s, pregnancy rates have dropped to 5% per month on average. Although early menopause and premature ovarian failure may affect egg supply, egg freezing increases your chances of using your own eggs and having biological children.

2) As Egg Quality Diminishes Over Age

The proportion of eggs in the ovaries with the correct number of chromosomes declines as women age. This percentage is referred to as the “egg quality” percentage. Freezing eggs at a younger age means that a greater portion of eggs are normal when you’re ready to start a family because eggs remain the same age they were frozen at.

3) Undergoing Cancer Treatments

Chemotherapy and other cancer treatments generally interfere with fertility and, in some cases, result in infertility. Ovaries can be removed if a woman’s ovaries are cancerous. Some cancer treatments could be less detrimental to fertility if eggs are frozen.

4) Career Plans

Women who wish to pursue advanced degrees or challenging careers can freeze their eggs while they are young to ensure that they will have access to healthy eggs in the future.

Benefits Of Embryo Freezing –

1) Advanced Technology

The method of vitrification is used for egg freezing, embryo freezing and sperm freezing. Vitrification is an ultra-rapid process that prohibits the formation of cell-destroying ice crystals. The process also uses cryoprotectants, which is a culture medium that protects tissue from damage during freezing. Prior to the use of vitrification, a slow freeze process was used and often compromised the quality of the egg or embryo. Vitrification has little (if any) impact on the embryo today.

2) More Chances At Success

Freezing technology has gone far. Thanks to vitrification, frozen embryos now have success rates comparable to fresh embryos. You have more chances to get pregnant with frozen embryos because you have additional transfer opportunities.

If you can freeze and store embryos while undertaking a fresh cycle transfer, you can try again without undergoing another ovarian stimulation or egg retrieval process if the fresh cycle fails. As a result, one IVF cycle increases your overall pregnancy chances.

3) Less Costly

Although not all patients will have embryos available for freezing after a fresh IVF cycle, those with healthy ovarian reserve have a good chance of freezing embryos for future FET cycles.

Following a fresh IVF cycle, subsequent FET cycles are less expensive because medication is minimal and egg extraction and anaesthesia are not needed. After only one egg retrieval, SET (Single Embryo Transfer) may provide multiple FET cycle opportunities, increasing your cumulative pregnancy rate from one IVF.
