Fresh or Frozen? The increase of Egg Freezing as a method for Fertility Preservation for age related Infertility

a blog by Reproductive Medicine Institute- Chicago, September 4, 2013

While Infertility, and Fertility treatments, have long been fodder for the media, suddenly oocyte (egg) freezing is attracting a lot of attention of its own.

Updates in Egg Freezing

a blog by Genna Banafato, June 23, 2013

Fertility is finite. Women are born with a determined number of eggs. The majority of women have heard these phrases at one point or another and most understand they refer to the decreasing likelihood of getting pregnant as we get older. Up until now, as women get older and more concerned about the status of their fertility, the only option available to us has been advanced reproduction techniques, such as IUI (intrauterine insemination) and IVF (in-vitro fertilization).

As the ASRM (American Society for Reproductive Medicine) removes the "experimental" label from egg freezing and recent legislature in California (requiring insurance companies to pay for egg freezing for the sole purpose of fertility preservation in cancer patients) comes up for vote, more and more of the focus seems to be on oocyte cryopreservation. I spoke with Dr. Serena Chen of IRMS at St. Barnabus in New Jersey to find out some of the facts behind this recently developing science.
