Cryopreservation is a procedure that allows the preservation of eggs or sperm through a special freezing system. It is relatively quick and is a great option for women who want to put off motherhood for a few years. We share a little information so that you know the advantages of cryopreservation.
To preserve the eggs, hormonal treatment must first be performed. This will allow you to have a controlled ovarian hyperstimulation.
To extract the eggs, the patient is sedated and the process takes about 30 minutes.
What are the advantages of cryopreservation?
Women who go through the In Vitro Fertilization process have the option of freezing their eggs if they wish to repeat the fertility treatment in the future or if it fails to work.
Lots of women want to meet their work goals or finish life projects before becoming a mother. Cryopreservation gives them the opportunity to preserve their eggs in an optimal state, since with age fertility begins to decrease.
Procedures such as chemotherapy often pose a great disadvantage to fertility. However, cryopreservation allows women to preserve their eggs before chemotherapy so that they can use them later, when they are ready to become mothers.
If you currently do not have a partner, you can preserve your eggs so that later, when you finally meet the ideal person, you can use your eggs.
Another option, if you want to be a single mother, is to preserve them and find a sperm donor so that you can achieve a pregnancy.
