Egg freezing

Egg freezing is one of the most popular and successful treatment services in the clinic "Parens Fertility" in Lviv. This solution is recommended to women who want to preserve their chances to become a mom but want to postpone parenthood to later stages of their lives. 

What is exactly meant by egg freezing?

The procedure in the first place aims at the induction of follicle growth with their further retrieval. During this period woman gives herself hormone injections daily for around twelve days. This medication will induce follicles` development, and on a specific day, a doctor collects them by using a special needle and ultrasound. Then, all good quality eggs will be vitrified and kept in a clinic until the woman decides or will be able to use them. This is all done to warm the frozen oocytes when the right time comes as the patient decides to postpone her motherhood in this way for a reason.

Who may consider undergoing this procedure?

There are different reasons for women to try this type of assisted reproductive technology. Here are the most common ones:

Medical reason. Due to a specific medical reason, a woman may face the fact that if she doesn`t decide to preserve her fertility now, there won`t be big chances to have a biological baby in the future. Such medical states include cancer, the cases of premature ovarian failure in the family, etc. If a woman can`t use her own oocytes for IVF-cycle due to medical reasons, she may opt to use our Egg Donation Program or Embryo Donation Programs. Using services in our fertility center, you won`t have to worry where to find a perfect donor because we have our own cryo-bank and donor database, and our doctors will assist you on every stage of donation or surrogacy programs.

Not right time. Egg freezing has become a way to postpone the time when a woman will be immersed in motherhood. Some women do not want to feel the pressure of the advanced age and do oocyte preservation to come back to this question at the right time in their lives.

Personal reasons. You may not be sure if you are willing to become a mother one day but do not want to lose this chance and have options. Some of them explain this intention by the absence of the right partner at this point in their lives.

What are the stages of egg freezing?

If you have a strong determination to go for oocyte cryopreservation, the first thing you need to do is to get a consultation on this subject from a specialist. A doctor will create the plan of action and will prepare you for the central part of this process – the induction of superovulation. Your fertility specialist will also check your hormone levels and assess your ovarian reserve to prescribe you the individual dosage of medication. 

Your journey will start at the beginning of your menstrual cycle and involve daily injections for around two weeks. Any woman who is undergoing this type of stimulation is coming for check-ups and blood tests at least three times during this time. The next stage is egg retrieval, which is minimally invasive and is done while you are asleep and don`t feel anything. Under the ultrasound guidance, the doctor aspirates follicles from the ovaries by using the aspiration needle. The decision on how many eggs to retrieve is highly individual and requires a doctor`s advice, but the general principle is "the more – the better".

Your last step will be the cryopreservation of mature eggs. Vitrification is a method used for these purposes. It allows cryopreserving biological material (such as eggs, sperm, or embryos) without the risk of damaging it, unlike the slow method of cryopreservation used in the past. 

If you want to guarantee higher success rates of your future IVF, you can freeze fertilized eggs with our Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET) programs. 

One of the significant advantages of doing this procedure in Ukraine is the cheap cost of egg freezing and the price for their storage compared with other countries. However, in no way do low prices mean any poorer quality of services. Our fertility center complies with the most recent European legislation in reproductive medicine, and we guarantee the highest quality of our services and average success rates.
