Egg Freezing in New York, NY

For some women, it just isn’t the right time to build a family. Whether you’re facing medical treatment that may harm your egg quality, or you are focusing on other endeavors before trying to conceive, egg freezing might be a good option for you to preserve your fertility.

Egg Freezing in New York, NY

Women looking to delay child bearing for social or medical reasons should consult a fertility doctor who specializes in egg freezing to determine if they are a candidate for the fertility preservation procedure. However, there are some general medical guidelines that can help you decide if egg freezing is right for you:

  • If you are a woman under the age of 40. Women under the age of 40 see the best outcomes with frozen eggs. Between the age of 35 and 40, women will see a decline in their fertility. Around the age of 42, many fertility doctors urge their patients to use donor eggs to conceive. In order to give yourself the best odds using your own eggs, you should freeze them before you hit this milestone.

  • If you are about to undergo chemotherapy or another type of treatment that poses risk to your eqq quality or quantity. Radiation therapy for women diagnosed with cancer has shown to decrease ovarian reserve. Fertility doctors can work quickly and efficiently to freeze your eggs without delaying crucial cancer treatments.

  • If you have been diagnosed with tumors, endometriosis, or another condition that causes scarring. Scar tissue on or near the ovaries might impact the overall health of your ovaries. Freezing your eggs will help to eliminate that risk and will also bypass the process of ovulation (which may not occur naturally due to the presence of scar tissue).

Much like an in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle, egg freezing requires a patient to use ovarian stimulation fertility drugs and undergo blood work and ultrasound to monitor follicle development. Eggs are then retrieved and cryopreserved for future use.
