Understanding Egg & Embryo Freezing in Menlo Park, CA

Egg freezing (also known as oocyte cryopreservation) is a revolutionary technology that allows women to preserve their eggs at their current quality and age. This procedure involves carefully extracting mature eggs from the ovaries and freezing them for future use. Embryo freezing, on the other hand, involves fertilizing the eggs with sperm to create embryos before freezing them. Both options allow individuals to preserve their fertility for various reasons, ensuring that they have viable options for starting a family when the time is right.

The Top Reasons to Freeze Your Eggs

At CCRM Fertility of San Francisco, we understand that every individual’s journey is unique. There are several reasons why individuals choose to freeze their eggs:

  • Future Family: Many female partners choose to freeze their eggs to have the flexibility of starting a family at a later stage in life when they are ready emotionally, financially, or personally.
  • Cancer: Women undergoing cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy or radiation, may face a risk of infertility. Freezing eggs before cancer treatments and other Oncofertility services can provide them with the opportunity to have biological children in the future.
  • Transgender Pregnancy Options: Transgender individuals who wish to transition may opt to freeze their eggs before starting hormone therapy or undergoing surgeries that can affect their fertility. This allows them to preserve their genetic material and have biological children in the future.
  • Premature Ovarian Failure (POF): Women with conditions like premature ovarian failure or diminished ovarian reserve may choose to freeze their eggs to increase their chances of having biological children in the future.
  • Surgeries: Individuals who are planning to undergo surgeries that may impact their fertility, such as removal of ovaries or reproductive organs, may choose to freeze their eggs or embryos as a proactive measure.

Egg Retrieval Procedure

When your eggs have reached the desired maturity, we will perform the egg retrieval procedure. This is a minimally invasive procedure performed under sedation to ensure your comfort. Using ultrasound guidance, a thin needle is inserted into the ovary using ultrasound guidance, a thin needle is inserted into the ovaries to carefully collect the mature eggs. The procedure typically takes about 15-20 minutes and is performed in our state-of-the-art facility at CCRM Fertility in Menlo Park. Our skilled and compassionate medical team will ensure your safety and comfort throughout the procedure.
