Frozen Egg Storage

You can take control of your fertility with frozen egg storage

At our Dallas egg freezing center, we believe that women should be able to take control of their reproductive potential. That’s why our full-service fertility clinic offers egg freezing as a form of fertility preservation, as well as frozen egg storage options. Regardless of the reason why you want to postpone motherhood, our physicians offer a highly effective way to preserve your eggs until you’re ready to have a baby.

Egg freezing as a form of fertility preservation

More women are waiting to become mothers. This can be a problem because the quality and quantity of a woman’s eggs decrease with age. However, egg freezing and frozen egg storage can help you preserve your ability to become a mother in the future.

Our Dallas egg freezing experts recommend that women freeze their eggs in their 20s or early-30s because women who undergo fertility preservation at these ages tend to end up with more eggs that are of higher quality, which can improve the odds of conceiving in the future.

Understanding frozen egg storage

Our Dallas egg freezing center offers temporary storage for frozen eggs that will be used in upcoming IVF cycles. This temporary storage is typically designed for eggs that will be used within six months. Eggs in this type of storage remain in a cryotank in our state-of-the-art IVF lab that is protected by backup generators and monitored 24/7 by experienced embryologists.

Women who freeze their eggs as a form of fertility preservation will store their eggs for longer than six months. In fact, they typically don’t plan to use them for five to 10 years. In this case, our Dallas egg freezing center team will transfer your eggs to a trusted long-term storage facility. Frozen egg storage can keep eggs safe and secure indefinitely.

When you’re ready to conceive using your frozen eggs, the storage facility will send your eggs back to Dallas IVF. Our embryologists will carefully thaw one or more eggs for fertilization in the IVF lab, and you will then undergo an embryo transfer procedure. Our Dallas fertility specialists will typically transfer one embryo at a time to reduce the risk of developing a pregnancy with multiples.

After your embryo transfer procedure, your physician will carefully monitor you for signs of pregnancy. Once you conceive, your pregnancy should proceed just like any other.

Egg freezing can give you the option to delay motherhood until you are ready to welcome a baby into your life. Contact us to learn more about fertility preservation and frozen egg storage.
