Predictive egg cell cryopreservation

Egg cell cryopreservation allows you to try to get pregnant with your own eggs later.

Egg cell cryopreservation

It is possible to cryopreserve your own eggs for later use. In some cases, it is not possible to start a family during the best fertile age due to a certain life situation. Predictive egg cell cryopreservation allows you to try to get pregnant with your own eggs later when your own fertility has declined. 

Female fertility decreases with age

Female fertility decreases significantly with age. The situation varies between individuals, but generally, fertility begins to decline after the age of 30. At this age, the number and quality of egg cells in the ovaries decreases and the likelihood of chromosomal abnormalities in the egg cells increases.

How is egg cryopreservation carried out?

The best age for cryopreserving eggs is under the age of 30. Cryopreservation is an option, considering the individual situation, until the age of 35.

The eggs are retrieved in an ovarian puncture procedure and cryopreserved in liquid nitrogen with the vitrification method. The storage agreement for the cryopreservation of eggs is valid for three years at a time, after which the need for further storage is assessed together.
