What is Egg Freezing?

Egg freezing, also known as oocyte cryopreservation, is a process where a woman’s eggs are harvested, frozen and stored for future use. This technique provides an opportunity for women to preserve their fertility, allowing them to conceive when they are ready, regardless of their age or reproductive health.

Egg Freezing Process at Benecare:

The egg-freezing process involves several stages. The first step is to stimulate the ovaries to produce multiple eggs using fertility drugs. This is done through daily injections and regular monitoring through ultrasound and blood tests. The next stage is the egg retrieval process, which is a minimally invasive procedure done under sedation, where a thin needle is used to extract the mature eggs from the ovaries. Once the eggs are retrieved, they are immediately frozen using a process called vitrification, which involves rapidly cooling the eggs to prevent the formation of ice crystals that can damage the eggs. The frozen eggs are then stored in a cryogenic tank at -196°C until they are needed in the future. Egg freezing can be a viable option for women who wish to delay childbearing due to personal or professional reasons, or for those who may face fertility challenges in the future due to medical conditions or treatments such as chemotherapy. It is important to note that success rates of the egg-freezing process can vary based on several factors such as the age of the woman at the time of egg retrieval, the number of eggs frozen, and the quality of the eggs. Women who freeze their eggs at a younger age (typically under 35 years old) have a higher chance of success. The egg freezing procedure is a safe and effective procedure with a low risk of complications.


In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) with Egg Freezing:

This method involves stimulating the ovaries with fertility drugs to produce multiple eggs, which are then extracted, frozen, and stored for future use. The eggs are typically stored for several years, and when the woman is ready to conceive, they are thawed, fertilized with sperm in a laboratory, and implanted in the uterus.



This is a newer technique that uses a flash-freezing process to freeze the eggs quickly. This method reduces the chances of ice crystal formation, which can damage the eggs during the thawing process.


Donor Egg Bank:

This option is for women who cannot use their own eggs due to medical reasons. The woman can select a donor from a database, and the donor’s eggs are used for IVF.


Natural Cycle Egg Freezing:

This method involves monitoring a woman’s menstrual cycle to determine the optimal time to extract a single egg. The egg is then frozen and stored for future use.
