Is freezing right for you?

Freezing May Not Be For You

Egg freezing is not for every woman, and every woman is different, with different needs, medical situation, life experiences and expectations.

This is why we conduct each treatment with empathy, integrity and individualised care.

The most important thing is that you are listened to, your questions are answered, and you make an informed decision that is right for you.

Are there Complications?

Yes, but they are rare – this is why it is so important for an experienced Fertility Specialist to assess you to make sure egg freezing is right for you!

Complications may include:

  • Pain, bloating, and discomfort
  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • Damage to internal organs
  • Overstimulation syndrome

Egg Freezing Does Not Guarantee A Baby

Frozen eggs, when used in IVF, have the same reproductive potential using fresh eggs in IVF.

However just as IVF does not guarantee a baby we cannot guarantee that freezing your eggs will ensure you have a baby when you come to use them.

Many factors can impact upon the subsequent IVF process, such as the quality of your eggs, reaction to the freezing, how they will fertilise (this also depends on the sperm), how your resulting embryos will grow and the quality of your embryos once transferred back to you.
